REDMOND, Wash. — Dec. 11, 2006 — Your World. Your Game. With today’s release of Microsoft® XNA™ Game Studio Express and the launch of the XNA Creators Club, this phrase has never been more true. Based on the easy-to-use Visual C#® 2005 Express Edition and Microsoft .NET Compact Framework, XNA Game Studio Express opens up the world of game development to the masses and is now available for free to anyone with a Windows® XP-based PC at http://www.msdn.com/XNA. With the release of XNA Game Studio Express, Microsoft Corp. unveiled the XNA Creators Club, opening up video game development to untapped creative minds, enabling anyone to affordably build and play amazing game ideas on Xbox 360™ systems for the first time ever.
Cue excited fanboy rant:
WOOHOO! Also, you're going to want the skinny on the Creator's Club. The only thing that saddens me is that I truly don't have enough time to work on my game. I don't even have any spare time over Christmas because I'm saving all my vacation for when the baby is born. My mission? I must learn to live without sleep.
