Please Pay the Xbox Indie Game Developers in a timely Manner

Did you know that if a developer had released an Xbox Live Indie Game (XBLIG) on July 1st, 2012 they still wouldn't have been paid a cent by Microsoft (that's 142 days)!!!

Basically, Microsoft holds back payments from XBLIG developers for 45 days after the end of the next fiscal quarter. At the time of writing this petition, its been 50 days and counting without any word from Microsoft. To be fair to Microsoft, they give themselves an out by saying we can't actually ask them about our payments for 60 days after the end of the quarter.

In a nutshell, they could hold an Xbox Indie Game developers funds for as long as 152 days without even having to acknowledge an email asking where is my payment! This is something that is unacceptable and has to be changed!!!
