Microsoft has confirmed a report from earlier today that its Xbox One console will support self-publishing for developers. The system will also double as a development kit.

"Our vision is that every person can be a creator. That every Xbox One can be used for development," Microsoft's Marc Whitten told Engadget.

Microsoft previously stated it would not support the model, but we've gotten used to this from the Xbox One-80.

Day by day more and more good news for the X1. I think it's only a matter of time till' they address the biggest issue people have with the X1, it's price.

Edit: This won't be available at launch. It will be available within the first year of release.

Thanks to Keysnsamples Keysnsamples for the info.

Great news. Self publishing is a great thing for developers and consumers.

I love what they're doing here, but I don't like how they're doing it. I would be much more inclined to support Microsoft in the next generation if they had come out with this (among many other things) in the beginning. I feel like they have had their backs to the wall ever since E3 and are just doing all these things to save their own asses. Two threads posted here in the last hour pertaining to wonderful news from Microsoft. Don't get me wrong, I love all of it, but I wish they would have supported all of these things before they basically had to if they wanted to stand a chance in the console war.

So who cares about the controller if that's the only thing you care about you really need help
Back on topic this is a great move for Microsoft

The 360 controller kicks the **** out of every other controller on the market, even with the dpad problems. The X-1 is improving on the 360 controller without compromising its form or function. its like dipping bacon in melted cheese.

Who cares about the controller? Ha Jokes. I program chips for controllers. I like to hold something that is comfortable not as shity at the Ms product. Back on topic that is a good thing they did but still they are ****.

Original? Hasn't Sony used the same controller since the dual-analog PS1 controller came out?
Yes same based design. I would have been happier if they stuck with the 360 controller and tweaked it a bit.

Along with the ability to share games and no region lock features, Microsoft has just confirmed that the Xbox One can play PS4 games.

Still don't see any resemblance.

Seriously? The outlines are nearly identical. Plus you have the huge center area.

Im sure its wayyy more comfortable, but if you cant see that the designs are extremely similar, go get some glasses. :wink:

Cant wait to get my hands on both controllers though. I don't know if anything can beat the 360 controller, it was the best imo.

Sadly self publishing won't be available at launch. Their "vision" is to have it out sometime in the first year. May want to add to OP

Apparently MS has made this decision weeks ago. They have been just holding out till Gamescom.
