Fancy being an Xbox 360 games developer?
A new era of garage computer games development begins with the launch of XNA Games Studio Express. Games for Windows and Xbox 360 can now be built by anyone. The power of the XNA framework and the tools provided is amazing! I attended the UK launch event and caught up with games developer group general manager at Microsoft, Chris Satchell. Chris tells of all the samples to help you get started and the type of games that can now be built plus his dream of a 'YouTube' of community games built using XNA. Developers from Microsoft Games Studio company Rare (developers of Viva Pinata), supported the UK launch with sessions and workshops.
Following the launch event I was lucky enough to attend an XNA workshop held at Rare. A video of my awesome day at Rare to follow shortly.
