What's all this "sixs months development time" I keep hearing? Does that just apply to XNA Game Studio?

I only ask because I have a copy of Edge dated May 2004 which has on the front: "XNA Microsoft ends the console war"


What probably happened was that they announced it at GDC 2004, and then spent the next year and a half figuring out what XNA actually was.

Once they came upon that insight, it only took 6 months to... "enact their vision."
