XNA Creators Club Game Launcher download time extended!
Posted by XanTium | February 21 23:25 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
Originally the 'XNA Creators Club Game Launcher' was set to go 'offline' on February 24th, but David Weller announced it will be extended:


Due to overwhelming response, we've decided to extend the time window where people can download the XNA Creators Club Game Launcher and play the games during the trial of Xbox LIVE Community Games. The games themselves still expire on March 9th, but this gives a little more time for people to get the launcher so that you can download and play the games.

It's almost like we dropped more quarters into the machine Stick out ;)


Update: it's been extended only 48h, until Tuesday, Feb 26th Midnight PST.

I still say the games are weak, but I liked the one where you shoot kids with RPGs and shotguns.

I believe the idea is to for now show what the system is going to be like, and then when ready it will be introduced as a permanent thing

Yep, go to live marketplace and download XNA games club launcher , then go to the games blade, scroll to "XNA games" (the list will be empty) and then press Y button to get a list of downloadable XNA games. Queue all 6-7 of them and after download they will be available in the XNA games list.

Hum, so you can't play anything after March the 16th?

You have to put down 50 for the toolset?

Why can't they make it like Arcade and just give trial demos then put points on them?

The current available XNA games are for demonstration purposes. Microsoft stated that full permanent access to Community Games will be something that will be available late this year. They provided games from the finalists of the DreamBuildPlay contest as a way to show you what it will be like later this year. When they do offer it permanently, any game that has passed the Peer Review process will be available to Live (Silver and Gold) members for free. Microsoft has stated that will have the system in Beta in the "spring", but did not state whether this beta program will be open to the public. Most likely it will only be open to Creators Club members since they will be the ones posting their games to the service and also the ones who will be doing the Peer Reviews.
