Consuming XBox Live Stat Information? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm interested in consuming XBox Live Stat information.  Is there anything up right now that Microsoft offers for me to consume a Xbox Live type of 'web service'?  Is this something that will be available with XNA?

    It seems to me XNA will help game developers build games that communicate with xbox live to store game info/stats/scores, etc, but what about consuming this information from websites?   Will there be a licensing program for something like this if I wanted to do it?

    Thanks,

    Ken

  • Hey Ken, I looked around for information on gathering the Xbox Live stats and couldn’t find much. I did find how to write a Microsoft Gadget that gets information from Xbox Live which you can see here: http://microsoftgadgets.com/blogs/gadgetnews/articles/1019.aspx

    This seems to be the best way available right now to consume it that I could find. With XNA specifically this is something we're currently in development on, so we're not at a point that we can commit to what functionality it may have when it is released. I will be more than happy to pass this along though as something that's wanted.

    Hope this helps!

  • Michael,  I appreciate the time you took to look into this for me. 

    Are there any partnerships that are available during the XNA development cycle where a company/individual could help evaluate, test, and help give feedback on something like this?  

     Sincerely,

    Ken

  • It sounds like your looking for the kind of information that the Xbox Community Developer Program - XCDP provides.

    Unforutnately they aren't currently taking new members.
