WooHoo! During the XNA Gamefest 2007, Microsoft announced there will be a version 2 of the XNA GameStudio. There is some really nifty features that I have been looking forward to. Here is a small list that I have been waiting for, you can read the rest on the XNA Team Blog.

  • XNA Game Studio 2.0 works in all versions of Visual Studio 2005. This includes Standard and Professional, as well as many other specific editions.
  • Create rich multiplayer games over Xbox LIVE using the new networking APIs.
  • Host XNA Framework games easily inside a Windows Form.
