Community Games on Xbox LIVE Beta

xnacclubonline1 Game development has been democratized as the newly designed XNA Creators Club Online Web site and the highly anticipated beta of Community Games on Xbox LIVE are launched. This was announced by David "LetsKillDave" Weller Program Manager - XNA Community .

Here are some of the excerpts :

If you’re a already a premium member, you will be able to join us in the Community Games on Xbox LIVE Beta immediately, where you can submit your games and review others games, and enjoy playing them on Xbox LIVE! If you are not a member, sign up today and get involved in making game development history.

This effort represents, quite literally, several developer-years of work.

Here are a few cool things we encourage you to check out:

1)      The Quick Start Guide will take you on a tour of all the features of the new site plus a guided tour of how the community games distribution pipeline works.

2)      The new Education Content Catalog lets you find content quickly by type or development area

3)      The new Role Playing Game Starter Kit – sure to stimulate your need for creating your own “old school” RPG-style game

4)      The new Community Spotlight area, featuring interviews and articles from amazing community contributors (and sometimes a “celebrity interview”)

We encourage you, no matter what your game development expertise, to visit the new XNA Creators Club Online Web site, at, to see the new changes for yourself!

Though I don't have a XBox , still the news is very exciting.
