While we are following up about the lack of Arcade and DLC content on our newly supported Xbox Live marketplace I also asked why there aren’t any Indie Games listed.
Unfortunately the answer is simply that the Indie Game channel is not supported in South Africa and Xbox are currently investigating bringing these to the country. It also looks like the rest of the new additions to Xbox Live are also not being granted access to the Indie Game channel.
Which put simply means that Microsoft will not offer indie developers the chance to sell their wares to South African, Greek, Polish, Russian, Brazilian, Chilean, Colombian, Czech or Hungarian gamers at the moment.
This is the same line that was used when we queried our lack of Xbox Live 4 years ago so don’t hold your breath.
It seems that even though Microsoft have agreed to move the Indie Channel back to it’s original spot they are still not being given the chance to truly market their titles to the full global audience.
