XNA 3 CTP = XNA for Zune


The first CTP of XNA Game Studio 3.0 is now available !


This CTP only targets Windows and Zune and only supports 32 bits edition of Windows, but it is already great to be able to develop games for Zune ! I have ported my Xna Chess game from Xbox 360 to Zune in just a few hours : most of the work was bitmap resizing ! Of course the Zune does not have enough power to make it competitive against native engines for Pocket PCs (such as Fruit under CEBoard 🙂 ) but it is really cool to have the same code running on XBox, PC and Zune !


Here is a screenshot:

    There is a group of Zune users looking for more games, that looks good, you should post it to http://www.zuneboards.com/forums/zune-games-171/ when you think it’s ready.
