Eight 360 Dev Kits Donated to Aussie Industry
Posted by XanTium | March 30 20:39 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From gamespot.com:


Game development companies in the Australian State of Victoria received a boost today, with the Victorian Government announcing that it will donate eight Xbox 360 development kits worth A$65,000 ($52,000) to the industry.

The dev kits will be given to the Game Developers Association of Australia (GDAA), which will then loan out the kits to various development studios across Victoria.

Companies interested in putting their hands up for one of the kits will need to put in an application to the GDAA. Throughout the duration of the loan, the GDAA will monitor the progress of game development, and will help developers in the process of getting new games to market.

Looks like the government even favors the 360 over the PS3. Sorry PS3 fanboys laugh.gif !

Yay! I live in that state.

I wonder if my old University might get one for their new game graphics and development courses...
I was promoting Xbox1 during open days when that course came out... Xbox wagon came and we all just played games..
