So MS reversed-course on indie self-publishing.  Wonder what they'll do a 180 on next...

Gotta love this PR bullshit, though:

I am getting so pissed at Microsoft for all these turnarounds. Not because they're bad for the industry, I think they're awesome for the industry. But it garners more support for Microsoft who have now shown not only are they willing to try and screw over their customers as much as they're allowed, but also that they're incredibly disingenuous.

I think at this point Microsoft really should just give up and call the fucker the XBox One-Eighty (or perhaps the Xboneatetee).

I like the "analysts" who keep saying that MS is listening to their consumers and adjusting their policies based on feedback...cuz you know, all the negative backlash and complaints and condemning reviews had nothing to do with their sudden changes.

Its just business. They have to position themselves as a viable option. I wouldn't be surprised if they dropped to $450 in the near future. Its the kinect that's making it $500..

Here's a list of what Microsoft's claiming to be their launch titles for the XBoneighty.

And here's where they talk about their new and improved Indie Dev program.

So MS did:
a 180 with the physical disc sharing/locking
a 180 with the always online
a 180 with the kinect requirement

If they change their mind another time, they should have just called it the 720.

^Yeah but Microsoft just did their console less desirable to a bunch of people with the way they handled their own mess.

I've said the same thing elsewhere, Ygg. Basically, those who didn't want the original XBone are already looking forward to the PS4/made up their minds. The people who were actually looking forward to some of the XBone features are now upset with Microsoft too.

So they've gotten a few more people to eventually own both consoles, and that's about it.

I'll just quote what MikeP said in the comments on that article:

Appearing to not actually remotely understand what your customers want in the first place is a weakness.

Why did nobody told me that such a thing like the Sega Activator existed back in the 90's? I never knew that Sega had something similar (more or less) to the Kinect in those years.

Because we'd rather not feel old by acknowledging people might actually be young enough to not have heard of it. Especially since there's a good chance those people are 20 or a bit over now.

Though I guess maybe you ARE old enough and just didn't follow Sega or games at all then, whichever.
