    SOFTWARE HOUSE Microsoft has announced updates to its App Hub for Windows Phone 7 (WP7) developers with a bunch of new features.

    The Microsoft WP7 App Hub is where developers manage their accounts, adjust settings, submit applications and keep in touch with Windows Phone 7 stuff. Microsoft has kindly updated it with new markets, distribution options and enhanced apps and account management capabilities.

    Hey there,

    If you say we can deploy apps to xbox aswell, would this mean that we can deploy xbox indie games to countries where the games don't have to get rated by the films and publication board(or similar)

    Can't wait to run some code on my xbox! I heard it is a shader machine.

    Hi Again,

    I tried to deploy some code to the xbox over the weekend and found that I cannot do it. I think I must be doing something wrong. I have downloaded the XNA Creator Club application on the xbox but when I run it, it says I don't have an app hub account(which I do have since I deployed 2 WP7 games already)

    Does anyone else have a similar problem?
