gamescom 2013: Microsoft reveals indie program for Xbox One

Microsoft has unveiled its indie developer self-publishing program for the Xbox One.

Applications to the ID@Xbox Program will be accepted from 20th August at www.xbox.com/id and if a developer is accepted, it will become a registered Xbox One developer.

ID@Xbox will give two development kits at no cost and developers will have access to the full power of the console, cloud services, Kinect and the Xbox Live toolset including Xbox SmartGlass, Multiplayer, Achievements and Gamerscore.

Developers will also benefit from a global support team, headed up by ID@Xbox director Chris Charla, while all games will be located together on the Xbox One Store, making things a whole lot easier to find.

"We know Xbox fans will fall in love with the quality and diversity of games on our platform," Marc Whitten, Xbox Chief Product Officer, said. "We are committed to ID@Xbox and are fully invested in helping independent developers succeed on Xbox One."

Microsoft EMEA boss Phil Harrison added: "I am really looking forward to the diversity and creativity of games that will come to Xbox One through the ID@Xbox program. We've worked with the community of developers to craft a platform that helps creators self-publish on Xbox One - irrespective of their size or location."
