Errata: Introduction Chapter

Hey Chad,

First of all, thanks for the great new book and the new forum!

I'm running through the book and examples and found the following which should be corrected:

Page 2: 

Software Requirements should read "Microsoft Visual C# 2008 Express Edition" (not 2005), and Microsoft XNA Game Studio Express should simply be Microsoft XNA Game Studio (without Express).

The first three chapters actually went through two different tech editors as well as myself. We all missed it.

There is another issue with this chapter. DirectX 9.0c is no longer required as XNA Game Studio will install the bits needed.

Thanks for pointing this out!

Thanks again.  Good to know that DX9c is not an installation requirement.
