Theres a debate going on in one of the TorqueX forum threads about the creators club subscription and its being claimed that people are deploying to their xbox without a subscription... its confusing some who may be interested in getting one or not.

The poster is incorrect. There was no access to the game launcher before the Creator's Club went live so there was no way to deploy to the 360.

Cool thanks for letting us know about this!

I just tried to launch the Game Launcher and it tells me I don't have a Creator's Club membership and won't allow the Game Launcher to run. I seriously doubt the poster is correct. Of course, the people that told him they did this were probably just lying so it's not his fault.

Or maybe the people he is thinking of were beta testers...

I don't think anyone outside MS tested the 360 piece, at least we didn't hear of it.

The poster is either lying or was misinformed. Even our private take-home Beta program required a subscription to run the XNA Game Launcher.

Um. People on the Torque forums barely have any idea what they're talking about. Theres so much misinformation there its not even funny. I'm not surprised at all.

Obviously you need the Creator's Club subscription. What do people think they are paying for Anyway, if there were some other method of deploying to the Xbox360 how would we not know about it by now

On a related note, I wish when 360 reaches its end of life, MS would be generous enough to let us run our games without Creator Club/Xbox live. It would be sad if all of our hardwork when Creator Club closes its door.

Hmm, how would MSFT deal with this ... oh yes, go and buy the XBox 720 to run it on!!!

Good point though...

I am still holding onto my old XBox in order to play 70% of my Xbox games... Not holding my breath there... ;)
