Hosting games

Is there a way we can host SilverSprite games on our own servers? If yes, how?

A Silversprite game is just a regular Silverlight application.  You just place the xap file on the web server (make sure you've set the correct mime type for it if necessary) and create a hosting page (the Silverlight project wizard does that for you).

so I don't need any special config on my server to run this? Just silverlight and XNA?

No, you don't need anything on the server except the XAP mime type to be registered.

You can see what the mime-type(s) should be right here:

Happy coding :)
