Microsoft gave 12 months of creators club membership to winner (for Wildboarder, impossible to run it with final xna gse on windows without a crash on my pc btw, probably because of my 800x600 res) and 4th months to other 9 coders... (same troubles on my pc)

I won't say it's not nice, but does it mean MS acknowledges that this membership cost is quite a lot for a developper? Weird... And somehow I feel the winner may already be a member of creators club...
If I was MS I would have offered vista for directx 10 and still made people believe membership cost is affordable...

Makes sense I suppose, but it really is hard to justify 100 dollars for nothing else than code execution on the 360 (when you can do it just as well on pc no less)

plus for the same amount of "money" as Vista (it doesn't cost MS technically anything), they can give away 6 memberships to XNA
