Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
I just noticed this on Amazon a few minutes ago...
 
Learn Programming Now! with XNA Game Studio Express and C# Express Edition
(Link to Amazon here.)
 
No big deal, except the cover prominently mentions C# 2008.  (Last time I checked, XNA didn't support 2008)
 

Apparently the guy that wrote it is a devices MVP in the UK.  Looks like it's published by MS Press.
 

Here's the odd thing... Amazon says it has a CD containing Game Studio Express (which means it's 1.0 refresh at the latest) and another CD containing Visual C# 2008 Express.  Do these even work together?
 

I'm going to try and get a review copy of the book and investigate further.
 

Stay Tuned...

Hey,
Did you get the book?
If so, any conclusions?
