Download XBLA Creator games before Tuesday!

I don't normally just post a press release, but I haven't had a chance to jot down my GDC thoughts, and this thing's time-sensitive.

If you want to download, play, and review XBLA Creator Club games, you need to download them before midnight Monday (12 am Tuesday), and play them before March 9th.

Press-release below:

Play and Review Community Arcade Games

Want to check out some of the fun and exciting community-created games announced at the Game Developers Conference? Here's how to download and play the XNA Community Arcade games.

The games are available until midnight Pacific Time on February 26, 2008. The games will expire on March 9 at midnight Pacific, so get them while they're hot and play them before they're gone!

Before you download and play, first you need to download the launcher.
To download the XNA Creators Club Game Launcher:

1.    Go to the Marketplace Blade in the Xbox 360 Dashboard

To see this process in action, check out Major Nelson's video interview with XNA Program Manager Michael Klucher on the XNA page of our GDC coverage.
