Xbox.com Getting Major Update Tomorrow

Some indie developers are not happy with the changes that have come from yesterday's Xbox 360 dashboard update. At issue: The removal of Xbox Live Indie Games from the proper games store.

Within the "Games & Demos" section of the Games Marketplace, you'll now find Arcade Games, Games on Demand, and Demos, but no "Indie Games." Indie Games now reside in their own section within a separate "Specialty Shops" category, along with the Avatar Marketplace and Game Room.

"It's a categorical failure (literally) ... I'm hear (sic) to mourn Indie Games being known as 'games', which I suppose we must now rename Indie Specialties," said Weapon of Choice developer Mommy's Best Games.

Do you think the new classification of Indie games will make them harder to find? Do you care at all?
