    it's funny in a way...

    way back in august they posted:

    http://blogs.msdn.com/xna/archive/2007/08/13/announcing-xna-game-studio-2-0.aspx

    starts with: "Announcing XNA Game Studio 2.0"

    as if it was out...

    then at the very bottom:

    " As we near the release of XNA Game Studio coming late 2007, we'll have more information."

    so they should have
    a) said "in progress - sometime" for the name of that post
    or
    b) just not say anything till they had a ctp or a beta for download.
    IMHO

    but really... yes i'd like to know more and see a beta / ctp for 2005 and 2008
    or if they can't do both then get on 2008 and forget 2005.

    I hope XNA Studio 2.0 works with both Visual Studio 2008 and Expression Studio 2008. Tongue Out

    Cool

    I wrote to the team recently, but they didn't think it was the right time to do anything on XNA for 9.

    They wanted to have a product to announce. I told them that the niners would just like to see an interview with them, and that the product, anticipated though it may be, isn't going to be the reason niners will tune in.

    Niners like seeing new products (provided the interview is good), but as you guys know, it's unnecessary for a good video.

    So, if you guys want to see something, I highly suggest you start another thread and get niners to show their support for another video.

    The team might not listen to me, but I'm only one guy.

    Raymond - if you create a thread in here (and in a relevant C9 tech forum) in which you try to rally the troops, then I'll take it to the XNA team and try to use it to buy us an interview.

    Sound good? Smiley

    Thanks.

    Whenever the XNA team wants to do the video is fine with me.

    I am assuming they are talking a few months at most and not another year.

    Cool
