GC 10: Xbox Live for Windows Phone 7 detailed


5:30 AM on 08.17.2010



Microsoft has revealed what they’re doing with Xbox Live and Windows Phone 7 and it doesn’t look like they’re going to be half-assing things here. As the general manager of mobile gaming for MGS, Matt Booty, put it, “Windows Phone 7 is the launch of a major gaming platform for Microsoft.”

It’s easy to see Microsoft means business as the line-up is pretty huge. 60 games will be available when Windows Phone 7 is launched this Christmas, all listed below. More games are planned to be part of the launch portfolio and we can expect new titles every week after the new OS launches.

The games are a mix of stuff you’ve seen on the Apple and Android platforms, but there will be first-party developed exclusive titles as well, such as Halo: Waypoint and Crackdown 2.

This is being marketed as an extension of your Xbox Live experience so expect Avatars, friends, demos, Achievements, messaging and more. It should be pointed out that the press release states "turn-based" multiplayer instead of just regular multiplayer. Seems there won't be real time multiplayer, at least not at launch anyway.

Apple, Android and now Microsoft have finally stepped up their game in the mobile war. Which of these three platform are you backing?
