As of October 22nd the Indie Games channel will be peddling titles at 400, 240 and 80 Microsoft Points instead of 800, 400 or 200 says the corporate giant.
Indie Games at 800 can stay there, unless they update after October 22nd. 400 will sit tight but games tagged 200 Microsoft Points get dropped to 80. Get games this autumn for 68p!
The new pricing roughly equates to £3.40/€4.80 for 400, £2.04/€2.40 for 200 and £0.68/€0.96 for 80 Microsoft Points. Will the new prices help gamers part with their cash?
Clover creator Daniel Jones along with Tank Strike man Daniel Steger labelled the marketing muscle of the Indie Games channel "woeful" earlier in the year. Microsoft has defended their new rebranded community games channel, and proclaimed it's "poised to break out" soon enough.
"We're getting to the point now where we can see a momentum behind the platform that we think is definitely going to catapult it into proper money-making territory. We know there are multiple games that have made a profit already," said Microsoft's Charlie Skilbeck.
Japanese and German Creators can now also submit their creations to Indie Games.
