NXE to offer community games in new regions

Tuesday, 25th November 2008 07:23 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Microsoft’s confirmed that NXE’s community games are to head to new regions, following news that plenty of countries didn’t have access to the content when 360′s new UI launched.

Singapore, Australia and New Zealand will all get access to community games from December 15.

“If our annual Dream-Build-Play competition taught us one thing, it is that there is such a wealth of creativity and imagination in this region, and all over the world, that should be shared with millions,” said XNA boss Boyd Multerer.

“Now even more developers can participate in what we expect to be a worldwide movement to truly democratize game development.”

There’s a press release on Team Xbox.

    The community games system is the first thing Microsoft have done that I could stand behind and claim was a decent thing, I just hope they don’t start getting greedy when this system starts realising its potential. Oh, I know that if we analyse Microsoft’s behaviour based on their past business practices, they’re going to find some way to exploit this for money and taint it horribly, but I can hope it remains as pure as it is now.

    That more regions are getting access to it is a good thing. I really hope it lasts, and at least we can enjoy it while it does.

    You might be shocked to know this Esha… but the games aren’t free. That’s means that they’re exploiting it for money! What a world we live in. :(

    Still no access to it in Ireland?

    What I don’t get is *why* it’s been so heavily limited by region in the first place…
