The latest Xbox One-80
move is to integrate support of a self-publishing model for indies. Citing "sources," Game Informer
reports that Microsoft will now support the model prevalent on Steam and announced for PlayStation 4
Microsoft's earlier publishing requirements did not enable self-publishing
, but at this point anything and everything appears to be back in play for the console with the ever-changing messaging. Game Informer also reports the certification process for games is being streamlined and – although they can't confirm it – that all Xbox One units can also serve as debug (or developer kit) units.
We've reached out to Microsoft for comment.
