by Ferman Aziz

Microsoft has just announced in a press release that it’ll be launching its Windows Phone 7 with more than 63 Xbox Live games to take mobile gaming to the next level. The phone will integrate all the aspects of Xbox Live that hardcore gamers love: Multiplayer, messaging, leaderboards, full game library access and more.

MS also explains that the game count currently stands at 63 but a lot more will be there when finally the Windows Phone 7 reaches consumers’ hands. The games include well-known titles such as Castlevania and Guitar Hero, classically inspired numbers such as Frogger, casual games like Bejeweled and many more.

Microsoft Game Studios’ general manager of mobile gaming, Matt Booty said in an official statement today:

Windows Phone 7 is the launch of a major gaming platform for Microsoft. Just like we’ve done with Xbox 360, our charter is to push the envelope and deliver definitive games that maximize the platform. We will have an incredible line-up of MGS titles, and that’s just the beginning.

Windows Phone 7’s gaming content will come from Xbox Live, Microsoft Game Studios, and major and independent game publishers. Some of their launch portfolio games include titles from Gameloft, Konami Digital Entertainment, Namco Bandai, PopCap and THQ.
