You can contact an MVP ( http://www.mvps.org ) with the issue you have with a particular Microsoft technology or product. Those guys have direct contacts withint Microsoft and know their technology area inside-out.

Here at GameDev.net, you can contact Simon O'Connor (alias S1CA) for game development and DirectX. You can find his contact info here:

Why do you want to contact a Microsoft product manager?


This is easy, I would like to create game project with Microsoft:))))
May be it sounds strange but that's a true

I don't wish to be negative, but its unlikely you'll get anything from them - just think who you're talking to (one of the biggest software companies around) and then think just how many other 100's or 1000's of people who're likely to be wanting similar deals/opportunities [smile]

They are advertising for 'game design' positions though, so if you think you have what it takes you might be able to get on board.

Another possibility is to check out XBox Live Arcade stuff. As far as getting a game published with Microsoft it looks like the most promising option.

Microsoft doesn't accept unsolicited submissions (according to a good friend of mine working as an Xbox account manager). They seek out the developers they wish to work with and they only work with developers that have an extensive/proven game development track record (or new companies founded by those with an extensive track record). If you are such an individual they will come knocking.

If you are NOT one of those individuals you will need to aim lower and talk to the smaller publishers.

If want to develop a game for the Xbox then you need to join the developer support programme. Visit http://www.xbox.com/en-us/dev/default.htm for that.
