Microsoft will not allow independent developers to self-publish their games on Xbox One without partnering with Microsoft Studios or a third-party partner, a Microsoft exec told Shacknews at the console's reveal event.

Aw, this is another bummer, especially when compared to the PS4. I've also been sad that support for XNA (Microsoft's framework for game developers) is going away. I made a game or two using it and I thought it was really awesome, easy to use, and a total thrill to interact with something you made on your xbox.
