'Xbox Live Games' to plug Windows Mobile into Xbox ecosystem at last? Wouldn't that make too much sense?
We don't want to get our hopes up again, after having them repeatedly bashed against the rocks by a merciless Microsoft that's spoke quite highly of the potential synergy of its brands and yet so far held its mobile and gaming segments far apart, but this sounds promising. Apparently a slide from some internal Microsoft marketing material is making the rounds that says Xbox Live Games is the "mobile version" of Xbox Live for Windows phones, speaking in the not-yet-accurate present tense, and matching up with a recent job posting we've seen. Of course, that seems a completely obvious move for Microsoft, particularly with Windows Mobile 7 right around the corner, and we would assume it would bring along with it not just the social features of Xbox Live but also some gaming for these next-gen smartphones that can most certainly handle it. Shoot, there we go being logical again.
