...it's going to help us leapfrog the competition... it will certainly help us have more innovative content than either of them, just by definition. With all this random stuff coming from the community, every once in a while there's going to be a real gem in there that you just couldn't have found otherwise, it wouldn't have found its way on to a console... Who knows, maybe a guy like Will Wright will spin out a game in three weeks, toss it out on XNA and see what happens. This could become a wonderful test bed and you'll start to see super-cool stuff coming from guys who wouldn't really have that opportunity to do that kind of test marketing...

Too bad you need to pay for both an XBL Gold subscription AND have an XNA Club subscription to even see the games that have been submitted.

Of course, the downside to easy distribution is a larger number of copies/rip-offs/crap for each hidden gem.
