The new dashboard update just hit, and it turns out Xbox Live Indie Games can't use cloud-saving, can't use Beacons, your "Recent Activity" doesn't show Indie Games, they can't be sort alphabetically, by genre, by release date or anything- they just show up about 10 layers deep as a 2000-long list of titles.
You might think that's awful, because independant teams struggle to get exposure as it is, right?
No, it's not that bad. XBLIG was always terrible. The top 10 games on there last I checked were ALL lazy Minecraft rip-offs, except for that one that was a teledildonics app, and the creepy anime scrolling shooter. Independant developers are doing okay- Super Meat Boy was made by TWO DUDES! and Bastion was made on a budget of those guys' savings. The spot for games like this is on XBLA, or even better: Steam. If your game's even smaller than that, don't sweat it, I made a living on sites like Newgrounds, Kongregate and Facebook since I left High School. There's an intermediary platform every step of the way, but XBLIG doesn't sensibly fit into that.
People ON THIS SITE are making better games than the typical XBLIG game. If they phased this out, or if the Xbox 720 came out without it, as someone who makes games for a living I wouldn't care.
That's my opinion on this anyway.
