Notch: Being able to develop games on every Xbox One is a “wonderful” idea
“I think it’s a wonderful idea to have the actual box be the dev kits,” Notch told us. “This makes it easier for both the developer and for Microsoft, and presumably they could make it a lot cheaper since they’d only sell unlock codes. I realize there are other factors at play here, though, like a perceived need to make sure only ‘legitimate’ developers get access to it, so a monetary barrier might still be in place.”
Well, not every developers seems to be so excited about this as they still don’t belive that this feature doesn’t come with any strings attached. But, we’ll see what Microsoft has in mind in a few couple of months.
