XNA boss Chris Satchell has said in an interview with GI that digital distribution will create a new type of games publisher.

“With the release of community games distribution I think we will see a new class of micro-community-‘publishers’ – small community teams that publish their work exclusively on Xbox Live,” said Satchell.

“This means more diversity of content for gamers, a huge audience for up-and-coming developers and new creativity and talent in the industry, talent that will also fuel growth at large publishers.”
