The Upgrade Your Game contest is designed to highlight how fun and easy it can be to create cool software with the Visual Studio 2005 Express editions. Among the cool prizes available:

  • A full-size Namco Ms. Pac Man / Galaga arcade game machine
  • A full wardrobe (30 shirts) of ThinkGeek t-shirts
  • An Atari game-console-in-a-joystick device

Apparently, Paul Mooney has added to the fun by offering an XBOX 360 to the person who "creates or modifies the coolest game" using Visual Studio Express. And his offer is even open to us Microsofties...ooh, that's tempting, especially since I don't have a 360 yet. Anyone have a cool game idea I can borrow? ;-)
