The current limitations have prevented several games from ever arriving on the platform. Xbox Live Indie Games is exempt from Microsoft’s otherwise stringent policy.

“We intend to continue to court developers in the ways that we have,” general manager of Redmond Game Studios and Platforms Matt Booty told Shack News.

“I would also expect that for this new generation, that we’re going to continue to explore new business models and new ways of surfacing content. But Microsoft Studios is a publisher that works with a wide range of partners, as do a lot of other people, to bring digital content to the box.”
