Xbox Live Indie Games just got a placement upgrade. No longer hidden from plain sight, they are now integrated with the main game marketplace splash page, as shown above. This is no doubt a response to the myriad of complaints lodged against Microsoft for burying Indie Games -- both from indie developers and consumers alike.

With Indie Games in their rightful place, I'm pretty much content with the new Dashboard -- unless that awful 5-year-late Chuck Norris World of Warcraft ad comes back.
