All your points are correct. Keep in mind that most games aren't open
to modders. I don't have access to software development kits for most
music based games, which are on the consoles. That said, I also don't
have access to most games fall into the casual market. I've modified
the poll a bit to list only the categories I see us having access to a
software developer kit. Thanks,
