That’s not a billing system error – Enjoy an additional 4 months in the XNA Creators Club on us!

Dave Mitchell
Director | XNA

As a gesture of thanks to our incredible community and especially those who have jumped on board the XNA Creators Club train earlier than others, we’ve extended each and every active XNA Creators Club membership that was active on March 5th by an additional 4 months.  This free 4 month extension covers everyone who has purchased a membership to the XNA Creators Club since our launch back on December 11th of last year.  This includes both the 4 month trial memberships as well as the 12 month annual ones. 

We also were a little slower than intended in delivering against some of our community resources and assets as well as premium content and partner offerings.  That is changing now however with the March 5th launch of the XNA Creators Club Online community site.  We have a number of resources, starter kits and partner offerings lined up for release in the coming months.  There’s plenty in store for our XNA Creators Club members who have purchased memberships and are looking for access to member-only benefits.

Thank you all for the great support and enthusiasm in using XNA Game Studio Express and passion for learning to create great games.  The update to XNA Game Studio Express 1.0 is right around the corner and it’s a great release that brings quite a few enhancements and new features over our December 1.0 product.  I’m looking forward to even more games being shared with our new Club Packaging format that allows binary games to be shared among Club members on both Windows and Xbox 360!

Finally – the Dream-Build-Play warm-up challenge yielded some amazing results.  There’s still ample time remaining for those considering entering the main event.  The submission deadline is July 2 which gives you a little more than 2 months to get cranking on your dream game.  That’s more than enough time… right?  After all, the best game will get awarded an Xbox Live Arcade publishing contract! Head on over to for more information and to register to compete if you haven’t already.

    Thanks! I should have CC membership for the next 2 years now. 🙂

    Should the last bit be: "the best game will have the chance to be awarded an Xbox Live Arcade publishing contract"? My understanding was the contract was assured unless the game was up to snuff.

    What about creators club memberships that have been purchased but not activated yet?

    The reason I ask is that I won a 4 month license last year but haven’t been able to use it yet due to not having an XBOX (little thing I know) do I still qualify, so when I finally get my shiny new elite I’ll see the benefit of this offer?

    Hey Darks1de, How did you purchase your membership but not activate it yet? Was it a code?

    The membership had to have been active on March 5th for you to receive the extension. Please let me know if you have additional questions!

    I won it as part of the XBOX360Homebrew contest (seems like lightyears away now), So I have a install code but no XBOX to tun it on yet, kinda makes it hard to activate, lol

    Thanks for your reply Mike

    Do we have to do something to get the 4 free months?

    They didn’t get added to my account and I had to renew in December ’07.

    If it was supposed to be automatic, is there someone I should contact to get the 4 months applied to my account?
