"Many games are written in C++, but this requires a lot of ‘libraries’ to store information, along with a lot of man power to create them. XNA comes with a number of pre-made libraries, making it a lot easier to program with."

I thought C++, (as a well established Programming language) would have more libraries than XNA, which I had not previously heard of?
