Microsoft have welcomed 65 new sign-ups into the ID@Xbox program, it was announced on Xbox Wire. The self-publishing program now boasts over 200 developers who want to bring their game to Xbox One without having to go through a big publishing house first. With Microsoft offering 2 free development kits to developers that join the ID@Xbox program, we can see that many more developers are likely to follow suite. Potentially Microsoft damaged their reputation with indie developers when the console was originally unveiled last year. The Xbox 360’s market place, which is rife with new and exciting indie and arcade titles was not only pioneering but an attractive prospect to consumers. The lack of initial support lead many to question why Microsoft initially would take such a stance with indie devs. In response Microsoft are looking to rectify the situation and flood the market place with titles. To help do this Microsoft are offering 2 free dev kits to anyone who registers with the ID@Xbox program, as opposed to Sony who only loan out their machines.

With some big indie studio names in this list who have struck on winning formulas with their previous titles, we can see a bright future for the Xbox One. The Behemoth, Playdead, Compulsion Studios and Zoë Mode brought us the likes of Alien Hominid, Castle Crashers, LIMBO, Contrast and Powerstar Golf. Fingers crossed we’ll see many more great games!
