XNA Game Studio Express

Microsoft gets 'em while they're young:
XNA Game Studio Express is a new offering, targeted at students and hobbyists for game development. XNA Game Studio is based on Visual C# Express 2005 and lets developers target both Windows and Xbox 360. XNA Game Studio Express contains the following:
  • The XNA Framework Content Pipeline, which is a set of tools that allow developers to more easily incorporate 3D content into their games.

  • The XNA Framework, a set of managed code development libraries that make it possible for game developers to be more productive when creating games for Windows and Xbox 360.

  • Game Studio Express also contains a full set of documentation, how-tos, and starter kits that demonstrate how best to use the content pipeline and XNA Framework.
The first beta of XNA Game Studio Express was released on August 30, 2006.
