Xbox Live indie games resurface

Microsoft puts spotlight on independently developed video games

Microsoft has learned the error of its ways, returning the independently developed games it offers back into the Games and Demos section of Xbox Live today.

After much consternation from fans who could not find the games and developers complaining about visibility problems, Microsoft decided to make things right. The games also were not available as part of Xbox Live's game search functions.

The changes came as part of the Xbox Live Fall Update, which gave the service a make-over, added new functionality and features, and enabled support for the Kinect motion sensing camera.

Xbox Live Indie Games were pushed into the Specialty Shops section of Xbox Live Marketplace, which gave all of the games less visibility and generally made them hard to find.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
