The name is being changed in response to community feedback, in order to increase understanding and promote....here, just read:The launch of XNA Game Studio 3.1 begins the process of renaming Xbox LIVE Community Games to Xbox LIVE Indie Games. We're starting the communication about this transition with you – our incredible Creators. With your help hopefully this name change (along with other new features such as User Ratings!) will increase understanding and discoverability of your games! Late July, when we update Creators Club Online, we will begin revealing the name change to the Consumer side of our business. We believe this name better represents the independent spirit of XNA Game Studio gaming and creations!I for one think the new name is a huge improvement. Now we can simply call them Xbox Indies now and folks will know what we are referring to, instead of having to spell out Xbox Live Community Games every time someone releases a particularly interesting massager.
