After months of beta, XNA Game Studio Express 1.0 is now available. Head over to the XNA center on MSDN to download it.
For those of you who don’t know what XNA or GSE is, here is a little more info. XNA is a new suite of products and technologies Microsoft is releasing for the Game Development community. GSE is a free developer environment that runs on top of C# Express, and is for developing games for both Windows and the Xbox 360. For more information, check out the XNA FAQ.
I have been working on the first set of tutorials for beginning game development, and now that GSE is gold it is time to get them published. Hopefully I can have the first one up by this weekend.
