Thanks to Runway360’s post on the Xbox Forums, the news that Xbox Live Community Games will coming hitting Japan this summer, here is their post:
“Microsoft Japan held a media briefing today and its announcements included the launch of Community Games for Japan, Japanese-language support for XNA Creators Club Online and XNA Game Studio 3.1 Japanese Edition.
According to Microsoft Japan’s press release and a notice posted on Creators Club Online:
1. Xbox LIVE Community Games is starting this summer in Japan.
2. Creators Club Online will accept submission from developers in Japan in mid-July.
3. Distribution of XNA Game Studio 3.1 Japanese Edition is scheduled before mid-July to make it in time for start of accepting games, which is timed with the opening of Japanese Creators Club Online.
When I was writing No. 3, I wondered for a moment if xna.com could be a more proper place to post this thread because it might arouse interest and speculation from developers outside Japan too. But that is not my purpose. Still I’m posting here.
In short, Community Games starts in Japan this summer.”
