Indie developers were outraged after the fall update went live, as the Indie Games section was not in the Games section at all. It had been moved to the Speciality Shop where it shared space with Games Room, Rock Band, Guitar Hero and Avatar Marketplace content. Microsoft had assumed this would help create more exposure as it would not be competing with bigger names. It has now been moved to it’s rightful place.
Some of you may have noticed already that when you enter Game Marketplace section you are now shown the Indie Games square first before the Demos, Games on Demand and Live Arcade icon populate, thus ensuring it gets its due notice.
I do agree with both sides on this argument, by putting the it in the specialty shop it would get notice among the lesser travelled section listed there. But it does make sense to include it in the Games & Demos section as it about games after all. What do you guys think, should they have left it where it was or is this move a good choice?
