The self publishing thingy that XBL is doing should be great for independent devs.


But not for players. Remember XBLIG?

XBLIG had no form of quality control whatsoever. The only thing stopping you from releasing a game was whether or not other developers found game-breaking bugs in your game, like crashes or not adhering to the guidelines set in place by Microsoft. Because of this, many clones (Fortresscraft, Castle Miner, Flappy Bird) were put there, which hid the gems away from most people as they were buried under a pile of crap.

The difference with ID@Xbox is that you have to be registered by Microsoft and you can't just release something you made for fun in 5 hours. Plus, they will be doing more to promote and recommend games to you so it'll be easier to find games that you might like.
