GDC: XNA given to students for free

Here we go. Expect more XNA than you can possibly stand for the rest of the day. Microsoft's announced that the development suite is to be given to students for free (finally).

The free access is being organised under the DreamSpark banner, and is open to students from the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, Finland, Switzerland, Canada and the US.

All you have to do to get involved is to sign in with your Passport ID and tell Microsoft what sort of education you're involved in. We're not sure, "College of Hard Knocks" counts.
