Microsoft wants game developers to make games for its next cell phone platform, Windows Phone 7. And, today, Kotaku got a look at demos of games you might play (or make) on them... to help me raise my Gamerscore.
The Windows Phone 7 platform is coming this fall and represents Microsoft's push to make a more entertaining competitor to the gaming-stuffed iPhone. Today, Microsoft is talking about how the next version of its game development platform, XNA Game Studio 4.0, will support development across the Xbox 360, PC and Windows Phone 7 platform. What you get out of that, as we saw this weekend, is the ability to create a game that can be relatively easily made in three related versions for the three gaming devices.
