Another Duality ZF ad in XNA Roundup #26

Yet another Duality ZF ad in XNA Roundup.  It's our fourth.  Here's number one, two, and three.  Fast forward to our trailer and comments:

It's very cool to see they picked up on Novaleaf's Biology Battle (available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace), which I bought for 800 Microsoft Points but is now permanently on sale for 400 Microsoft Points.

It seems a lot of Xbox LIVE Community Games* developers are not willing to put money into marketing their games.  We won this ad spot on eBay for $61 USD, easily.  This wasn't even close to our top bid.  When I first heard of the auction, the highest bid was only $30 USD with 30 minutes left.  It feels like many indie game developers are not willing to risk money on their games, but expect gamers to risk buying them.

*Xbox LIVE Community Games soon to be renamed to Xbox LIVE Indie Games.
