Many developers were given the program "XNA" by Microsoft to help develop games for the Xbox 360. Now, you can download XNA Game Studio Express (requires Visual Basic C#) and create your own Windows or Xbox 360 games. It is free to debug and play Windows games, but you debug and play 360 games, you must subscribe to a service .

Still, I thought some of you may enjoy, as downloading Visual Basic and XNA Game Studio Express is free. Here's the site to get started. It is quite a big program, but I think once I get used to Visual Basic C# I could have a lot of with this.

yeah, that's probably the biggest thing. There's tutorials all over the internet, and it even gives you a working "Space Ship" game program to work with and edit at your will.
