Microsoft Late Paying Indies; Releases Public Apology

Late on payments once again..
Microsoft has once again delayed payments to independent developers, and now that the cat is out of the bag, the company is publicly apologizing for the delay.

Microsoft has confirmed the delay to Gamasutra and has given the following statement:

"Due to a technical issue in our system, we recently learned that some payments to select developers in the Xbox Live Indie Games program on Xbox 360 were delayed."

"Our partners are important to us and we work hard to help make sure they have a great development experience. This was an unfortunate error and we are working hard to fix it. We apologize for this incident and anticipate developers will receive payments within the next two weeks."

However, according to sources speaking with Gamasutra, Microsoft is often late on making payments to the independent developers, so often that some of those affected didn't care that this most recent pay was late.
