On behalf of Microsoft Game Studios, I'd like to announce that my hit tutorial game, GuitarrMatey, will be released as a retail box title. Release date is still TBD. Here's a sneak peek at a few of the features:

  • 2 new Pirate Ships
  • 3 new Ocean Backgrounds
  • The same rockin' backing track!
  • Support for wireless guitar controller
  • New pirate dance
  • A system of keeping score

You're probably asking, well what will it cost? We are exploring the $64.99 price point as we are expecting a really busy launch day - this could realistically surpass first-day sales of Halo 3 according to early forecasts.

This is just a testament: One day it's a "How To Build An Xbox Game Using XNA" tutorial, the next day it's an international phenomenon! Stay tuned!
