Microsoft’s to release Kodu, its game creation app, today on Live for $5.
The program will allow you to create games and share them with anyone on your Friends list, and includes a terrain editor, co-op for up to four players and plenty more.
We’ll let you know when it goes up.
Update – Sorry, this is actually live now. There’s a free demo as well.

Microsoft’s game creation tool Kodu, which in some circles has been incorrectly compared to Sony’s LittleBigPlanet, is launching on Xbox Live’s Community Games service by the end of June, according to a blog post from one of the game’s developers.
“I’m doing final content passes as we get ready for release, which is the end of June. (Exact day TBD),” the developer said.
The tool, originally shoved under the bus that is gamer scrutiny at this year’s CES, is meant to serve as an introductory course to game programming. It uses simple visual cues to make game creation fun for the whole family, or so we hear.
Are you excited? Game programming is a mystery no longer. The magician is finally letting us look up his sleeve. Really, what more can you ask for?

During last night’s CES 09 keynote, Microsoft’s president of the Entertainment and Devices Division, Robbie Bach, unveiled a new Community game entitled Kodu.
The official blurb reads:
“Kodu” is a pick-up-and-create game where anyone can build their own unique world in just minutes using a simple image-based creator menu that makes game creation simple for anyone, from ages seven to 70. “Kodu” created playgrounds are expressed in physical action-reaction terms, using basic concepts like vision, hearing and time to control your character’s behavior.
Bach apparently demoed the game live on stage with a 12 year girl called Sparrow.
Full release after the break.
