Indie devs looking to get published on Xbox One's Live Marketplace will have to go through the Big M, the Xbox manufacturer has revealed.

This comes as a bit of a shock, considering both Sony and Nintendo have decided to embrace a self-publishing model for indies on their next-gen platforms.

"I would also expect that for this new generation, that we're going to continue to explore new business models and new ways of surfacing content," Booty added. "But Microsoft Studios is a publisher that works with a wide range of partners, as do a lot of other people, to bring digital content to the box."
