Xbox Live arrives on Windows 7 phones later this year, which is a long overdue extension of their integrated gaming strategy across different platforms. That said, the actual gaming side sounds pretty weak so far; the only details I’ve uncovered refer explicitly to turn based games. This includes a few popular choices like Uno and Catan, but leaves out a lot of Xbox Live’s heavy hitters.
I suspect that another announcement is forthcoming on this front. My bet is on a Zune gaming device, probably with a 720×480 resolution and integrated wireless to compete with the iPod Touch. I’d like to throw down in some online Ticket to Ride, and anything that can get me closer to that dream would be welcome!
