Quote:For just $99 you too can partake in the dirty and exclusive little secret we call console programming (with a cut-down dev kit, and only to find out that it's nothing special at all). I recall reading somewhere that Bill Gates was shown a modded Xbox running XBMC and all manner of other homebrew and responded with something like "How can we engage with this community?" rather than "Bring down the DMCA hammer and get these people off my box." I expect Nintendo and eventually Sony, once they sort out all their issues with the PS3, will offer similar avenues for amateur software, so start your MMORPGs planning early!

The details of the new tech are as follows: XNA Game Studio Express will be available for free to anyone with a Windows XP-based PC, and will provide them with what's described as "Microsoft's next-generation platform for game development." In addition, by joining a "creators club" for an annual subscription fee of $99, users will be able to build, test and share their games on Xbox 360, as well as access a wealth of materials to help speed the game development progress.
