So it appears that after three months of having the Indie genre of games essentially pushed to the back of the XBox Live Marketplace, Microsoft are currently developing an update (currently for US only) which will give the Indie genre more exposure and include it in the Most Popular and New Releases.
Personally, this is not an 'update' this is a fix to a problem that was implemented last year.
So, is that it? Have we won? Well, no - not really, not yet anyway! Firstly there is no telling how much more exposure the Indie genre is going to get and secondly there has been no official word of a UK release for this 'update'
I'm not claiming that this petition had anything to do with this update being announced, however it does seem very convenient that Microsoft announced it one full week after I started this cause. More than enough time to see if this fix was possible and then begin building it, don't you think?
Anyway, keep spreading this message out there! We can do this!
