    Basic summary for non-Xbox LIVE developers: here's a bunch of stuff you can do with Xbox LIVE, but to actually get access you have to be incredibly lucky and be selected to join the program.

    At //build2011, it was stated that anybody will 'soon' be able to apply for Xbox LIVE API access. It's been a year, and so far...nothing.
