Additional information was announced this morning at Gamefest about Xbox LIVE Community Games.  This information expands on the original announcement back in February at GDC by providing more details about how developers will be able to make money by selling their Xbox 360 games created with XNA Game Studio on Xbox LIVE Marketplace.

Here are some links with additional information:
