clip_image001Games are a big business opportunity for developers across personal computers, consoles and mobile devices.  The good news is that XNA Game Studio 4.0 is supported across multiple platforms. XNA Game Studio 4.0 is developed by Microsoft to help ease game development across Windows, Xbox360 and Windows Phone 7 devices. This allows the developer to leverage code across platforms and helps increase the size of the potential market.
