XNA

A development and runtime environment from Microsoft for creating and playing games on the Xbox, Windows and Windows Phone. Games are written in the C# language using Microsoft Visual Studio and XNA Game Studio, the latter including foundation templates that take the tedium out of programming various types of games (see real-time strategy and first-person shooter).

Games are executed under a Common Language Runtime (CLR) engine specialized for gaming (see CLR and .NET Framework). XNA originally stood for "Xbox New Architecture."
