Phone vs. PC Gaming with Xbox LIVE Now Enabled

Advertisement

Since the first turn-based multiplayer Xbox LIVE game was released for Windows Phone 7, now you can also play against people on the PC. In the above screenshot, you see a game of chess that Anton and I are currently playing. He can make moves from his Windows Phone 7 while I can make moves from the web interface. Heck, you can switch from playing the game on your PC to playing the game on your phone any time you feel like it. Make a move on the PC, wait for your friend, then make a move on your phone. Not bad, right? We haven’t tried to access the game from an Xbox 360 yet, but I imagine you’ll eventually have the same experience there.
