Using .NET to Build Cool Games for XBox

In case you missed the cool news from earlier this week, it will be possible to build games for the XBox using managed code (C# or VB) and a new .NET API for the XBox graphics engine. 

Mike Zintel (whose team builds the execution engine to support it) has some cool pictures and info about it here.

Fun stuff! :-)

That is really cool. Except for one thing. No way to run said code on the actual Xbox. 8*(

Is Microsoft planning any "hobby" development tools for the console?

Will this apply to the XBOX 360 as well?

I would pee my pants if I could build apps and run them on my Xbox360.

And I don't pee my pants very often.
