Xbox 360 and PC Now Supporting Networked Games Via New XNA

XNA Game studio is a game development toolkit that supports both Windows and the XBox 360. The initial edition was targeted directly at hobbyists and released as an extension to C# Express Edition.

The beta for XNA 2.0 brings the toolkit closer to the world of professional developers. The number one feature is that it now supports all versions of Visual Studio 2005. This unlocks tools such as integrated source control and testing frameworks. Multi-threaded debugging is enhanced and developers can use any VS Add-In they may have.

The story is too old to be commented.

It wont be longed before amateur developers are making insanely fun MMO games with cross platform capabilities on 360 and PC.

I've been hoping XNA catches on, MS did something rad when they started building that. It needs to get pushed more to indie devs to make more original XBLA titles instead of high res versions of things we can play on mame.

So will XNA ever be used in big titles or are they slowy evolving it to one day get there?

There will be more coming. I've messed around with it and think its pretty cool-- I now despise C++ and like the friendliness of C#. Now if they'd just get rid of the stupid subscription fee to try your work in progress on your 360... gCM

Does this mean live will be coming to the PC and if it does will that mean PC gamers will have to pay the same as the 360 owners?
