Hi Glenn!

Difficult question. We've been considered everything 
ranging from "snobbery elitism consortium" to "the new 
Activision". Actually the idea is to let it be free to 
everyones own guess as to what XYPE represents to him.

Don't call us - we call you.

I think benefits are given for the whole homebrew scene.

- The gamers will get better games.
- The collectors will get something to collect.
- The programmers get some extra motivation towards   
  improving the quality of their efforts.

Well, the main benefit for the XYPE members themselves 
(besides fame, women, glory and your own fanclub) should 
be rather obvious I think: Brand Recognition.

Anyone who ever bought any XYPE title, will know that he 
can't go wrong with buying any other game flying the 
XYPE label. There's no title in the range I wouldn't buy 

BTW: Xype release #08, Eduardo Mellos fantastic "Space 
Invaders Collection" for the Colecovision, will be 
released soon... ;-)
