"There will also be a good number of casual games" - come on guys, this is a mobile phone platform. *All* the games are casual aren't they? We're not going to see the likes of Spirit Tracks on WM7 or iPhone are we?

Hmmm give me angry birds anytime.

Can't help thinking MS have missed the boat here. If you have the cash an iphone is the best platform, on a budget go for android. W7 mobile has no obvious benefits over either.

I see Flight Control is being released by Namco Bandai, I wonder why? Am I right in thinking that Microsoft have higher charges for developers when compared to Apple? I'm working off a memory that is many many many months old here!

While most of the games on the list are from the larger names in the casual gaming market, they've managed to get some of the much smaller, independent devs too, and they're the ones that have generally made the better games on the App Store (I'm specifically looking at Half Brick here...). Of course, the only games that I don't recognise as being on the App Store, are those tied into xBox/MS franchises, so they've got no real advantage over the current platforms yet, but, early days...

@MarioM - Generally, yes. Although the likes of Final Fantasy have made it to the App Store and they're hardly casual games!

The hands on preview over on Engadget looks pretty good to me:

In response to my comment above regarding MS' charges for developers, from the windows blog:

# Annual registration fee of $99

# No limit to the number of paid apps submitted 5 free apps per registration, $19.99 each after that

I'm extremely wealthy and would never choose to own an iPhone. It might be the best platform for you, but it absolutely is not for me or many many others.

As far as gaming goes, you'd have to back Microsoft over pretty much anyone in terms of building a gaming service on a phone. Xbox Live is the gold standard for consoles and probably the best way to buy and find titles on any format there is. (Unless Valve fancies building a handset)

I have to admit, I currently have an iPhone (3gs) but im keeping my eye on the Windows Phone 7 concept to see how it pans out and if I want to jump ship! Obviously ill be missing out on all the money I have spent on apps ect, but the connection between the Xbox 360 and phone (as long as its done well) looks like a winner to me!

Also am I right in thinking that all games coded for Xbox live would work on the phone? Because there are a lot of interesting and fun looking games that have come up from Indie Devs, but I always feel quite foolish playing some of the games on the xbox on my 42" plasma! I think a lot of those games will take off if ported/available on a phone

Oh, and Zune pass, yes please!

Iphone is by far not the best phone and i definitely would never buy one. In my opinion android is the best phone platform, (just my opinion). I think WP7 will have a very good chance especially with the people who own an Xbox.

@Tim Sutton

Lend us a tenner!

Am I the only one who couldn't give a monkeys about mobile gaming?


August 17, 2010, 9:11 pm

@Brian To me the benefits of this platform would be Zune support and this gaming push. I imagine that Zune would mean having having both your music collection and stuff you have downloaded from Zune all in the one library and indistinguishable for whats downloaded and whats your own ripped CD's. This to me sounds fantastic as spotify is pretty poor for keeping lots of music on your phone as they are saved as playlists not by Artist or Album.

Then theres the gaming which ties in with your Xbox live account (I don't have an Xbox and I hate Games for windows live but reguardless) which would make cross platform play a reality and could lead to some interesting ideas in the future. I'm thinking an RPG *cough* like Mass Effect 2, those hateful repetitive, time wasting planet scanning sections. Yes they shouldn't be in the game at all but it's an example of grinding that if you could move onto a mobile version of the game would be much more tolerable. You scan all the planets you can can muster during your daily commute then when you get home you can upload to your account and play the actual real parts of the game.

I was/am fully expecting Microsoft to release a true gaming version of these OS but I can't get over Google beating them (okay so it's not confirmed yet) to the punch with the PSP Phone. If by the end of next year Google, Microsoft and Apple don't have some kind of real gaming devices with their mobile OS's on them I'll eat my hat.

PS I would never have added google to that list a week ago.

I feel that lack of multi-tasking (deal breaker), no expandable memory (pain) and lack of certain video standards support means that out of the gate I will not be buying a WP7 device. I'm just saying, they now have my attention.

Sure! Be happy to. I'll just require a collateral of £15 first. Non refundable. Or I suppose you could just mail me a fiver and we'll call it even?

I'm not interested in gaming on my phone either actually. Yet. When phones are our laptops then maybe. The 3DS on the other hand gives me a shiny happy..
