XNA-developed Community Games head to Xbox Live

Little Gamers is one such game

Also mentioned in Microsoft’s Game Developers Conference keynote was that it will let independent developers release their XNA-created games on Xbox Live. The XNA toolkit came out in 2006 but there previously hadn’t been a way for devs to release their work for mass consumption. Seven such games, dubbed Communtiy Games, are already on XBL; they’ll only be downloadable until February 24 and then functional until March 4. So if you want a taste of what’s to come you’d better log on before Sunday.

How much these games will cost in the future, not known.
