Huge news tonight as Microsoft have confirmed that retail Xbox One consoles can also be used for development from self-publishers.
In a statement to Engadget, Xbox corporate VP, Marc Whitten stated:
Our vision is that every person can be a creator. That every Xbox One can be used for development. That every game and experience can take advantage of all of the features of Xbox One and Xbox LIVE. This means self-publishing. This means Kinect, the cloud, achievements. This means great discoverability on Xbox LIVE. We’ll have more details on the program and the timeline at gamescom in August.
