Dream-Build-Play - XNA Game Studio 1.0 Released

The 1.0 release of XNA Game Studio Express and the XNA Framework are now available for download.

This release is likely to provide a big step towards the democratization of games development - by allowing students and hobbyists everywhere to easily build games for Windows and the Xbox 360.

Also announced was the availability of subscriptions to the XNA Creators Club which provides aspiring game developers with access to thousands of game assets from Microsoft and key partners such as Turbo Squid Inc., as well as white papers, specialized starter kits, samples and technical product support to help turn your game into a reality.

Microsoft is also launching a "Dream-Build-Play" contest in January for the best original game created with XNA Studio Express
