Great XNA Book Coming Soon

Rob Miles has finished his book on XNA development and it will be out in the wild soon. Although we don’t have XNA support for mobile devices it is a cool framework which allows you to build games for both PC and XBox 360 with managed code.

Not to mention the great puns in the Silly Ideas list.
