For the few xbox users out there~ (We do seem to be growing ^^)

MS is doing a promotion to get the word out on independent games.  If you are interested check this page out from MajorWilson

Woah those are some pretty interesting independent games to look out for. I'm curious to know what that survival horror game is. I see that you can play them for free on a certain date, but probably need and XB1 to play them.

Pretty smart of Microsoft to start doubling down on indies, imo. Although they usually end up coming to just about every platform, I'd say that having the best indie games first is becoming more and more important these days. 90% of indies seem to come to Steam at the same time though, so who knows. xD

 

At any rate, it's good to see Xbox getting more indies, especially after they kinda strayed for a while.

Weird how we have Wii-U (and Vita, I guess) representatives on GP and like zero Xbox One owners despite it selling much more globally. Xbox One just seems like the underdog compared to the PS4 which is just selling too well.

 

Also, I think it's funny that they emphasize "New" and then proceed to show games that debuted on PS4 and PC. Anyway, I think indie support is certainly a good thing (and I'd want to play a console version of Superhot personally.) and the promotion has a nice spirit behind it.
