I''d love to hear the advice of others as well. Sorry that I cannot advise Thor myself.

They prefer working with there internal development studio''s and they hire some development studio''s for some assistance for there projects. Or developing a whole project. When a third party developer wants to give/send a demo of for instance a cardriving game, you will have problems when EA, Infogrames/GTI, Microsoft (and some
others)al ready have a cargame where they invest much money in for developing/promotion/marketing/sales/logistics.
With developing I mean funding new versions of the cargame.
So a third party developer will have it not easy.
EA Need for Speed, Infogrames Test drive series, MS Midtown/Monster truck.
So you see how hard it is in this industry.

Once they''ve been around for a year, the floodgates open and pretty much anyone can get a dev kit. On the plus side, many of the bugs will have been worked out and additional developer resources will be available after a year or so. The Dreamcast for example has not been out for all that long and they''re already on the tenth version of the development tools...
