When Microsoft redesigned the Xbox 360's dashboard, it tucked the console's indie games marketplace away in a spot most casual observers would never find it. After indie devs lit torches and grabbed pitchforks, Microsoft has now moved them back.

Where last week the games were hidden away in the "specialty shops" area of the dashboard, they've now been returned to the main games marketplace, where they used to be found on the old Xbox 360 user interface.

The Xbox 360 indie development community - so quick to get angry at the initial move - has been just as quick to praise Microsoft for the reversal, with "hugs all round" probably the cutest of their proclamations.
