Microsoft Will let Independent Developers Sell Their Games for the XBox 360

Microsoft is trying to "democratize game development." After paying $99 for a year long (renewable) membership in the XNA Creators Club, they can submit their games. The games would then be peer reviewed. Those that pass inspection can be sold at the XBox Live Marketplace.

The price will be set in "Microsoft Points." The prices, set by the creator, can range from 200 to 800 of these "Microsoft Points." In dollar terms, 800 points is roughly $10.

The developers will make money from their creations in the form of a percentage of each sale. That percentage can be as high as 70%, the rest going to Microsoft.

Microsoft plans to make this operational by/around this holiday season.
