E3 2014 kicked off early with the Xbox Media Briefing. The presentation highlighted games coming to the Xbox One in the Fall and 2015. Among the unveiled games was a list of independent projects made possible through the support of Microsoft’s ID@Xbox program. ID@Xbox, the Independent Developers Publishing Program for Xbox One, provide registered studios with developmental tools, full access to the Xbox One platform (for using the Kinect, implementing Achievements, affecting Gamerscores, launching Challenges, SmartGlass functionality, and interaction with Xbox Live), a worldwide community, and assistance with publishing games to the Xbox One marketplace (Xbox.com staff, 2014). The robust ID@Xbox support system will help independent developers get their games into the hands of Xbox One fans. During the media briefing, ID@Xbox Director Chris Charla introduced a trailer for a selection of games already well on their way.
