With Microsoft losing a huge market share, after their statements back last year about not supporting Indie developers at all, it looks as though Microsoft are taking a step in the right direction with getting Indie developers on board to create Xbox One-first games.

As Sony have successfully aided and supported Indie developers for some time now, on the PS Vita, PS3 and PS4: is it time for Microsoft to get back in the game by providing new and exciting Xbox One Indie games before their competition?
