Robert Boyd of Zeboyd Games says that Microsoft must do more to promote the best games on Xbox Live Indie Games or risk losing the service's most talented developers to other platforms. The warning comes after Boyd's games, Cthulhu Saves The World and Breath Of Death VII, sold more in one week on Steam than their entire lifespan on Xbox Live Indie Games.
"XBLIG is a great solution for new developers," Boyd told Edge. "It's cheap, easy to learn, and has a great community of people that are willing to help each other. However, from a perspective of actually making good money, I do not believe it is a viable platform. The greatest strength and greatest weakness of the service is that it's the most open platform we've ever seen on any home console. Just about anyone can release an XBLIG title, and just about anyone does. As a result, the service has got a reputation for being full of garbage."
