View Thread: What does XNA stand for?

    If memory serves, here's the approximate breakdown:

    X -- a reference to Xbox and DirectX
    N -- Next generation
    A -- Architecture

    My understanding is that XNA isn't a "real" acronym in the sense that each letter is a reference to a different individual buzzword, rather than a coherent phrase.

    EDIT: FWIW, I thought the FAQ entry was amusing. Big Smile
