XNA, Community Games and the New Xbox Experience

Major Nelson has posted a video of an interview with XNA Community Manager Kathleen Sanders, which gives more information about how XNA’s Community Games will work with the new Xbox 360 Dashboard (known as the New Xbox Experience, or NXE for short).

The main exciting points raised in this video are that the games will appear on a seperate channel on the new Xbox Experience, and also that games will be available just 48 hours after submission (this time is used for peer review).  As far as I’m aware an XNA Creator’s Club subscription is not needed to play the games, only for deployment, submission and peer review of games.

The new Xbox Experience launches November 19th, as well as the final XNA 3.0 platform becoming available October 30th.
