I have a feeling they might be removed tomorrow, I think I read somewhere that they would stop selling XBLIG on the 9th september. So i'm buying all the best games whilst I still can.

It's not indie games but XBLIG which was sort of a separate service where smaller indie devs could publish their games at lower requirements and costs. It won't impact normal XBLA indies in any way.

Anything you have purchased from XBLIG will also be redownloadable and still playable but you won't be able to purchase the games anymore.

XBLIG


Thanks for the clarification. I own a lot of popular Indie games on PC, so I was wondering why they would delist some of those highly rated games on the Xbox 360.

There are some really good Indie games, but none of those I think I found on the XBLIG list.

Pick up the two aphelion games if you haven't, decent rpgs and not available on any other service like steam. I went through all of them last month and basically made a list of those I wanted that weren't on steam or such.

Thanks but with a nearly 1500 game backlog on PC and the Xbox 360, I am only getting games that I really like now and intend to play in the near future. Otherwise they will probably be buried in my library and never see the light of day. And with Humble bundle, that backlog just keeps on increasing all the time.

The only official word was two years ago, and it doesn't get talked about much.
