Posted on December 12, 2007, Chris XNA Game Studio 2 Allows Support for Xbox Live
We’ve seen some great potential from what aspiring game developers have put together using Microsoft’s XNA platform, and the latest release is only going to make things better. XNA 2.0 adds support for Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live so that indie games being developed can have online functionality.
“When building XNA Game Studio 2.0, we wanted to offer everyone the opportunity to utilize the rich gaming environment of LIVE used by AAA developers for titles such as Halo 3 and Gears of War,” said Chris Satchell, general manager of the XNA organization at Microsoft. “We accomplished our goal with this new toolset, and, best of all, it remains highly accessible to students, hobbyists and pros alike.”
Now, if we could finally get some XNA games flowing onto Xbox Live, we’d be even happier.
