The GameStation Community
David Perry - Recommended

"DavidPerry - Recommended" is my personal stamp of approval awarded only to extremely key projects / games / books related to video game development. You can be CERTAIN that you will not see it often, and when you do, you should know that I highly recommend this product.

NOTE: I'm in no way affiliated with this hardware, and I've bought my own XGameStation unit.

I started developing games over 20 years ago, in high school. Back then we did all the programming, art, design, audio, testing etc. We did everything! It was fun and it's an incredible rush when you realize that you've taken complete control over the system you're developing for. The problem for me was that I had little-to-no help to learn, and I had to struggle constantly with very dodgy development systems. I just can't believe how lucky developers are today, with so may free tools on the Internet, so many books, so many classes in colleges popping up around the world, and now (thanks to Andre) you can even have your own personal development console at home! (Heck, he's even making a community for people to share their progress and what they learn!)

All I can say, is seize the opportunity, learn, try, network & enjoy! You will learn a lot about yourself and your abilities as you attempt to get a game going. You can bet that this machine alone will trigger some hiring, when game companies see just how passionate and dedicated and talented you are. This console will give you that chance to show your ability.

I predict Andre getting thank you letters in the future from people who not only realized they now love making games (via their XGameStation), but that ended up with a professional game making career!

My first professional job for was $5,000 a year, in 2002 my company Shiny Entertainment sold for close to $50 Million. Thank goodness I got started (even when the going was tough!) I would have KILLED to be where you are now!

If you've ever thought of making games professionally, and you want to stick a toe in the water, if you want to see how games get made, I can't think of a better way than this.

Some of you will thrive, some will fail.... For the ones that have the passion, I sincerely look forward to playing your games!
