GDC08: What lurks behind the XNA curtain?

Apart from the fabulous iSheep, the most interesting thing in Microsoft's XNA lobby was the mysterious shroud you see above. What lurks beneath its silken folds? Honestly, we have no idea. All we do know is that a nearby sign declared that whatever hides behind the gossamer barrier will be revealed this Wednesday at 11:30am. As it happens, 11:30 is about the time that John Schappert should be wrapping up Microsoft's GDC keynote, "A Future Wide Open: Unleashing the Creative Community." We're waiting with jaded bated breath.

As a person who got recently interested in XNA I really want to see what they unveil. If they can unveil some new assets for the XNA platform that would be great. Also, would be great would be some free content and heck make access to XNA Creators Club completely free.
I think most of 360fanboy readers however will be underwhelmed but I am excited.

For a guy that is so into swearing and making a lot of noise, I would think you could learn to spell "butt".

Seriously!? Why do people that rip on Sony on the xbox360 fanboy site get voted down??? Logically, It makes no sense. Are there really that many ps3owners looking at this site? I'm just wondering because, it would be like someone on ps3fanboy getting voted down for ripping on Microsoft. (that's always met with praise on ps3fanboy.)

That's because they are true fanboys over there, anything that isn't positive that is said about "their system" and they throw a fit.

I don't like fanboy's but the PS3 fanboy's much like the parent company are so arrogant and irrational that it's sick.

Because being any sort of fanboy is unacceptable and helps no one. I don't know about the rest of you, but when I play a game I play it for the game, not the console. If you think about it, a fanboy is no different than a toned-down Nazi.

I bet it's something underwhelming, not interesting and really wont excite me at all.

On the other hand, it could be GEOW2 but i doubt it somehow.

"Because being any sort of fanboy is unacceptable and helps no one."

I totally agree with you, but this is So that means fanboy related information or ideas. So it a little silly to say that fanboys are horrible on a fanboy dedicated site.

What a stupid statement...

I am a fanboy and the term nazi only shows how much of a fcking idiot you are DomoBraden!

I love to bash the PS3 here and Sony in general.

NatoDuke i missed a keystroke much like you miss in life.It happens my friend dont let it get you down.

And yes this is a fanboy site.There are a reason for fanboys.Yes they may be like nazis but i prefer the term patriots.Sure we all like good games but when people are knocking good games for garbage games "mgs4" then someones gotta defend the good.

I would take fable2 over mgs4 anyday the only reason mgs4 gets talked about so much is hype.Its a fucking 12 hour movie with 2 hours of game time.

basically its over hyped shit.
