Apparently Microsoft doesn’t think that they will see any games from Indie sooner then 2014. But, Phil Harrison, corporate vice president of the firm’s interactive entertainment business in Europe, also told GamesIndustry that Microsoft has had “an avalanche of interest from all corners of the globe.”
“I don’t think we’re going to see things at launch,”
“I don’t think it’s realistic to see a developer get the programme and build a game and get it into the market on November 22. It’s reasonable to expect in early 2014 we’ll start seeing the first games come through.”
Of course Microsoft’s Independent Developers @ Xbox programme will allow registered studios to use all of Xbox One’s features, from cloud services, Kinect, Achievements, challenges and Xbox Live multiplayer to automatic Game DVR video recording and uploading.
He also added;
“We’re working through applications and creating that dialogue with developers,”
“As we said at the time, we have phase one where we give away development kits and loan them to the teams that inevitably will have to pass some kind of a qualification to justify a limited number of dev kits being given to them. That process is ongoing. Eventually our goal is that every retail Xbox One console becomes a dev kit. And then we open up to the widest possible audience.”
Now guys tell me do you think Indie games will be able to make a game before Nov 22 , 2013.
