Located in the back of Moscone West's show floor, Microsoft is holding an XNA Game Studio AI Challenge, where contestants (divided into two teams of four each hour) have 50 minutes to program an artificial intelligence script (in C#) that will defeat the other three members on their team in a shoot-em-up multiplayer match (think: four Geometry Wars ships shooting each other for scores). The winner of each round receives "Invite Only passes to the XNA party" (which is happening tonight).
