A YouTube for videogames August 14, 2006

Posted by rockysays in general, hmm...interesting, news, videogames.

Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?! OK, so it was essentially marketing prose from Microsoft’s Peter Moore, but it’s a great idea.

Microsoft have announced a free software suite called XNA Game Studio Express that will enable anyone running Windows XP to create their own games for PC and XBox 360 (although if you want to create games for the 360 you’ll have to pay an annual $99 “Creators’ Club” subscription fee). Given the amount of manpower and time it takes to develop a console game these days, it’ll certainly be interesting to see what can be accomplished by small indie studios, or even bedroom coders. And considering the grumblings coming from developers about just how difficult it is to code for the PS3, this is a really canny move from Microsoft. The beta version of XNA Game Studio Express is due to be launched on August 30th. You can read more here

Will games be quality? I mean, I have an idea for a game. But it’s more towards Nintendo. It’s a wrestling game with every single wrestler and fighters from every wrestling and fighting game. By fighting game I mean Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, etc..

Thats great. It will cool to modify all the 360 games. Hopefully it will produce cool and intresting game. There are other good games besides street fighter. GReat idea to combine all the fighting games together but I think every gamers will love to play it. Especially Online.
