New name for Xbox Community Games

Say hello to Xbox Live Indie Games.

Microsoft's Xbox Live Community Games project is getting a new name as of next month.

From late July it'll be known as Xbox Live Indie Games. That's according to the XNA Creators Club website, as spotted by Kotaku.

"We believe this name better represents the independent spirit of XNA Game Studio gaming and creations," it says on the site.

"Late July, when we update Creators Club Online, we will begin revealing the name change to the Consumer side of our business." The internet waits for no man, friend.

The announcement was made as Microsoft launches XNA Game Studio 3.1. XNA users can now put Avatars and Party play in their games, and stick videos in them too.
