On Tuesday, March 6th from 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM, Microsoft will be holding a session at the Game Developers Conference to introduce developers to the future of games and entertainment. They'll be doing deep dives on Xbox LIVE and Windows 8, where you can learn about how you can take advantage of Microsoft's vision for connected entertainment.
The primary audience for this Developer Day is professional developers who build games and entertainment applications for Xbox 360 and Kinect, Windows 8, Windows Phone, and the web. Developers will learn about the new Windows 8 Metro style application platform and new Xbox LIVE services that deliver breakthrough entertainment experiences across all of Microsoft's entertainment platforms.
This represents a huge opportunity for game and entertainment application developers to take advantage of the connections being built between the Xbox 360, Windows 8, Windows Phone, and the web. You can get more information about the Microsoft Developer Day by going to the GDC Tutorials page.
Why is the above invite still having an iPad style image to mention it as a tablet. When windows has its tablet specifications, why cant it post something like it.
I expect antleast MS appreciate its own things, before others appreciate it.
Could this be the start of cross platform gaming between all MS devices?
so this means we can expect from casual to hardcore games in WinRT? I want to be able to fully use my GPU, yeah games on tablets/phones are important but also real nice games like Halo, Gear of War, the old Shadowrun, Lost Planet Colonies, which were cross platform.
and since WinRT is the future hopefully just like any version of windows, if you arent able to play a game because it was "heavy" for your computer and people had to upgrade your pc or find another game, I hope this is the same case with WinRT, I dont want it to be just for boring casual games that will run on all devices
i do not think so , course as of to day you have to have multiple os to developerment on these devices , unles microsoft swicth to one unifyed developerment platform and microsoft will never open up for c++ developerment on xbox 360 to the public , so only c++ on the tablet and xna managed code on xbox 360 and windows phone , but these tools for phone and xbox does not run on windows 8 only on windows 7 and tablet developerment in on windows 8
so you need 2 versions of visual studio and 2 version of os
wicth lead to this 15.000 dollars just to get started with new computers and licens to the software
and 99 dollars for apphub and 49 dollars for windows 8 store if you whant to sell your app or game
and that will kill all the small developers and hoppyist app and game makers
That is why that i hope microsoft has done the right thing this time
one platform ethere managed code or c++ developerment
and you know take a look of this sony has microsoft by the balls
allready one unityfyed platform based on c# managed code
look simlar to xna
for the vita,tablets,phone and later this year playstation 3
all with no restrictions you can even create code in c++ native
allso the sony devices is powred by nvidia hardware physics
and this is really last chance for microsoft this year there platform has to come together or sony will highjack all the developers
only windows 7 is need and free tools from sony
and sony even claim that you can build on all android devices
not specfit to sony a lone and that is a killer
i have work with the kit for some time now and it is a killer compared to xna on xbox 360 and phone where we are only allow to spin one core
but on sony you can spinn all the cores you need for your game
complate open tools and hardware
so i get microsoft need to step up here
and figur what the company whants to bet on
and make it easy as possible to develop meen more app in faster time
no app in the platform no one will buy the product even if it has the cool looking metro
