Microsoft’s seems to have gotten in the giving spirit when it comes to reversing policies. They will now allow self-publishing as an option on the [amazon_link id=”B00CMQTVMI” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Xbox One[/amazon_link]. In an interview with Engadget, Xbox Corporate VP Mark Whitten gave a statement confirming the change and when we would hear more about the details:

“Our vision is that every person can be a creator. That every Xbox One can be used for development. That every game and experience can take advantage of all of the features of Xbox One and Xbox LIVE. This means self-publishing. This means Kinect, the cloud, achievements. This means great discoverability on Xbox LIVE. We’ll have more details on the program and the timeline at gamescom in August.”

It certainly seems like Microsoft is trying to win back some of the support that has been lost over the past few months with these changes. Only time will tell if it is working.

And not crushing Make-A-Wish kids dreams would help also.
