What do I need to Make XNA 4.0 Games

Category: Mobile | XNAJoel Ivory Johnson @ 01:58

This is from one of the slides shared at GDC

  • Visual Studio 2010
  • XNA Game Studio 4.0
    • Silverlight and XNA Framework
    • Windows Phone 7 Series, Xbox, and Windows Project Templates
    • Debugging Support
  • C# Development
    • .Net Framework (Windows)
    • .Net Compact Framework (Xbox, Windows Phone 7 Series)

I can't help but notice VB.Net is missing (note: that is in no way a complaint, VB.Net was also unsupported in previous XNA versions). To use the Xbox Live APIs you must be partnered with Microsoft and meet additional certification requirements. So I won't talk much about Xbox Live services in the future. Most of us (including myself) won't have access to it.
