Backward Compatibility for XNA Indie Games

With the launch of Backwards Compatibility Program on the xbox one, I am wondering if we will see the indie game market place eventualy make a return to the list?

Indie games was a large portion of the Xbox catalog on the 360 and had man great games that people still play even today

I've seen several games on the list that use XNA and seeming its an emulator there is not compatability problems, So why no love for the indie games?

And Xbox Admin mentioned before that
"Xbox One is going to be backwards compatible with the Xbox 360 library of games both physical"
and then linked to a list that obtains only AAA Titles and Arcade Titles.

    If Indie Games could be on Xbox One, then that would be TOTALLY AMAZING! We could finally play Murder Miners on this amazing console!

    Does Microsoft not even address these suggestions? Please bring indies back. They not only are good for the community and friends, but also generate even more $$$ for Microsoft to fund their new content!

    TotalMiner was an amazing Indie Game, I would love to see every Indie games to come back because they are all fun but mostly TotalMiner and any other survival indie game like CastleMinerZ , made by an excellent Developer's ( Hi Craig ). The Community was not the biggest, but active. TM featured so many awesome stuff: scripting, multi-texture blocks, in-game shops, in-game money, a fantastic voxel art, great Otis and more. I would love to see it bc or developed for the One.

    I loved the indie and arcade games, head shot 1&2, dishwasher: dead samurai/vampire smile, try not to fart! They were a very cool thing to have available

    Please Microsoft, indi games were a way for us gamers to get to know other game developers out trying to make it. It was also a way to experience new games differently from the ones we bought from the store. Graphics wasn't their biggest strenth, but the feeling was set in a retro gaming way. I don't know how the sales were personally for indi game company's to get to rent or pay to establish their products on the consoles. So please let Total Miner be assessable for XB1 users.

    I'm tired of lazy 4j studios ruining xbox mc. Bring back the real building survival game Total Miner! like seriously, total miner on xbox 360 can have 24 people. Xbox one MC only has 8. They suck at their jobs. Give us the amazing game Total Miner!
