Microsoft announced today the availabilite at the end of the month of XNA Studio Express. This development suite, costing $100 a year, will allow anyone with a bit of programming knowledge to create his own games for PC and for Xbox 360. The Xbox Live distribution system isn't really well known yet, but I think we can count on Microsoft to really push this content. In the news you'll find images from demos done with XNA Express and/or with the Torque Engine it's shipped with. Update : One small but important information. The development environment itself seems to be free, the $99 a year subscription would only be necessary to be able to use the compiled code on the 360.
@KORNdog: 1080p to 4K scales well because it's exactly 4X. You don't get that typical scaling blur. (33 minutes ago)
Only downside and regret i have is having a curved screen.. but that changes next friday when i pick up new "flat" Samsung UHD.. (48 minutes ago)
@bleachedsmiles: i can assure you bud.. as a 4k tv owner there is NO downside in hooking up your consoles.. defeatable upscaling in game mode allowing for native on most mid to high end with hdmi 2.0 (51 minutes ago)
To me he was making points on not just Battlefront, but particular peeves I have with how the industry has went these days. Plus $120 for a fucking game?! Jesus Christ. (1 Hour ago)
@KORNdog: Yeah, I don't usually watch him, but I didn't mind that one. He'd plenty to say on it, and every point he made was bang on. He wasn't his usual OTT schtick either. (1 Hour ago)
i agree with what he's saying though. the game isn't interesting enough to pay double the amount for more content. (1 Hour ago)
Game design taking a backseat in favour of capitalising on the licence and the quick sell. The industry as we know it today. Oh, and the selling of games in chunks! Fuck off! (1 Hour ago)
