I've heard that Microsoft won't update XNA and that it only supports DirectX 9.
Is that true? if so why people are still using it? I wouldn't bother to use something that will stay old forever.
Am i missing something?
yeah you are missing the part where a starting indie team will hardly need to make a call of duty level of 3d game
also even esperienced team might prefer to keep workign on something they know well and is easy and fast to develop...
