Xbox and Indie Developers

Nat Brown, project leader of the original Xbox team at Microsoft:

My gripe is that, as usual, Microsoft has jumped its own shark and is out stomping through the weeds planning and talking about far-flung future strategies in interactive television and original programming partnerships with big dying media companies when their core product, their home town is on fire, their soldiers, their developers, are tired and deserting, and their supply-lines are broken.

His argument: Xbox needs an iOS-like indie developer system.
