Xbox Live support for Windows Phone 7

Microsoft has unveiled the first wave of Xbox Live games that will launch later this year on its Windows Phone 7.

"We believe that no matter where life takes you, the best in gaming and entertainment should follow," said Marc Whitten, Corporate VP of Xbox LIVE at Microsoft. "Windows Phone 7 takes a different approach to handheld gaming, utilising Xbox Live, Microsoft Game Studios, leading game publishers, and innovative indie developers, to create powerful, shared experiences for everyone."

The firm says that in a sea of games, apps, gadgets and gizmos, the biggest obstacle can be finding a game that's right for you. “Only Windows Phone 7 has a Games hub featuring Xbox Live, creating a different kind of mobile gaming experience that puts the games you want front and centre,” the firm says.
