Six “Must Have” Xbox LIVE games coming to Windows Phone 7, starting May 25th
Microsoft has announced a new Xbox LIVE gaming initiative for the Windows Phone 7 platform, bringing no less than six games to the platform that it describes as “Must Have”.
Starting May 25th, Microsoft will add a new Xbox LIVE title to the WP7 Marketplace each week for six weeks. There’s going to be some big name mobile gaming titles coming along over the next month or so – the six titles are:
- Hydro Thunder Go – $4.99
- Doodle Jump – $2.99
- geoDefense – $2.99
- Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1 – $6.99
- Plants vs Zombies – $4.99
- Angry Birds – $2.99
We already knew that Angry Birds, Plants vs Zombies and Doodle Jump were coming to the Windows Mobile platform, and we had previously thought that Angry Birds would drop May 25th. This release date would make Angry Birds the first of the 6 Xbox LIVE games to be released, but Microsoft has confirmed the release date will be pushed back to June 29th.
