Project Spark beta arrives, lets you create an Xbox One game

This topic is locked from further discussion.

Microsoft is launching a beta version of Project Spark today, its game-maker project for Windows 8.1, Xbox 360, and the new Xbox One console. Project Spark is essentially a tool to allow developers, enthusiasts, and gamers to build a game within a game. Players can build custom worlds, characters, and animations from an Xbox One or a Windows 8.1 PC to play across both platforms. It's similar in concept to Sony's LittleBigPlanet, but Microsoft is making use of its history with Kodu and pushing SmartGlass integration to allow players to interact with their games and collaborate from a tablet while they build and play on an Xbox One.

While you’ll be able to create games that run on Xbox One from Project Spark, the beta version won’t launch on the Xbox One until early next year. Microsoft is rolling out Project Spark in limited numbers, too. The app will soon be listed on the Windows Store (it's restricted to certain regions right now), but you'll also need a special beta key once it's downloaded to activate and start building games. The beta for Windows 8.1 is preparation for the beta launch on Microsoft's new Xbox One console in January, ahead of a full launch later next year. Project Spark for Windows 8.1 will be made available in the Windows Store today, and you can request access to a beta key over at Microsoft's own Project Spark site.

This is one game I am interested in on the Xbox One. Sunset Overdrive and Titanfall are the other two however I'll have pass on Titanfall due to the controller used unless I can mod the Wiimote and Nunchuck to the PC version

How are MS handling the microtransactions in this? I heard they went a bit to far on them in the F2P forza and turned it into a grind. Sparks could be good if they tone the transactions down.

0:29 in that video can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwPAkE7WQAI

Just to give you an example.

You may call me a troll, which i'm not, but you know i'm right.

@danabo:

I am far more interested in getting one of those developer IDs, and actually using my XB1 as a dev kit to start writing my own game.

But, this is kind of cool, I guess...

It could be good, don't write it off already. It's weird that for once Microsoft doesn't make a shooter and people scream LBP ripoff. LBP is completely different, I own both of the LBP (1&2) games.

Wow judging off those videos, it looks like LBP is the one ripping off other games

LBP = Create watered down copies of already existing games.

You're right, you aren't a troll, you're a flat out idiot at this point.

what are the chances a patch/hack is released to allow windows 7 users to play?

You're the idiot since those levels are made by the LBP community. I simply proved that those Spark devs wanted to recreate LBP. I'm not the only guy either making the claim, it's all over the internet.

PS: it's always funny that the people who call other people idiots are the biggest idiots themselves LOL

I know what you mean.

You're talking about writing all of Windows 8's code yourself, and compiling it, so you don't have to give any money to Microsoft at all. Smart.

Right?

No one wants to recreate LBP moron. The game has nothing in common with LBP other than being able to make user generated content, and if that's the case LBP has ripped off games that came before it.

I agree, it's funny when the biggest idiots call other people idiots, especially the idiots who think Ryse is a rip off of God of War when it has nothing in common with the game.
