Yeah, WTF!!! This is really crappy of MS to do! All I want to do is play around with XNA Game Studio and my 360 and they want me to either pay $50 for four months access or $100 for a year access. In order to even play around with putting a homebrew game using XNA on your 360 you need to pay a reacurring subscription fee! There's no way I'm going to pay a fee that HIGH to just play around.
