Microsoft has just confirmed that the Xbox One will not allow developers to self publish their games, much like the 360 allowed before it. Xbox Live Indie Games will still exist in some form, but this section of the marketplace does not contain the financial incentives that the regular XBLA offers. In order to get a game listed in the XBLA, developers must make a deal directly with Microsoft or partner with a publisher. It should be noted that Sony and Nintendo currently allow developers to self-publish through PSN and eShop both for the PS4 and the Wii U.
