XBLIG moved back to Games & Demos

Victory for indie game devs.

Xbox Live Indie Games developers will be celebrating after Microsoft moved the channel back to the Games & Demos section of the Xbox 360 dashboard.

Microsoft triggered an outpouring of anger from indie developers after it shunted the XBLIG channel to the Speciality Shops tab away from other Xbox Live releases.

They complained it made their games harder to find.

Explaining the move, Microsoft told Eurogamer the new set-up worked better for independent developers.


Now it appears Microsoft has backtracked on the change.

Xbox Live Indie Games are now in the Games & Demos section within the Game Marketplace, sitting pretty with Xbox Live Arcade Games, Games on Demand and Demos.
