Windows Phone 7 Gets Gameloft Love

AKA "Gamelove"

Windows Phone 7 Gets Gameloft Love
 
 

Microsoft wants Windows Phone 7 to be THE platform when it comes to mobile gaming. It wants you to throw away any notion you have that iPhone gaming is cool. That'll be tough, but at least Gameloft is helping it realize that ambition.

Mobile gamers in the UK, where Windows Phone 7 is available ahead of the US, can now buy the following games:

Assassin's Creed
Earthworm Jim
Uno
Brain Challenge

The same title are all also heading to the US as well, where Windows Phone 7 will be launching early next month.

If the above titles look familiar to you, that simply means you've played a video game device in the last two years. Gameloft has been pimping them out all over the place, including mobile and console download platforms.

Windows Phone 7 is a reboot for Microsoft after its Windows Mobile and, more recently, Kin product lines fell by the wayside. The new service will be heavily integrated with Windows Live, including the Xbox infrastructure. Gamers will actually be able to unlock achievements and add to their Gamerscore by playing games on their Windows Phone 7 device.

When it comes to mobile gaming, though, iPhone is king, and that's going to be one tough crown to overthrow.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
