The UFC is on Windows Phone and Xbox Live

Sports Techie, Thank you Claudia for sharing your blog about the Windows 8 phone and specific Xbox Live games. We are based in Seattle and have a natural affinity for Microsoft. My family grew up down the street from the main campus in Redmond. I know many folks associated with Microsoft one way or another and they use the Windows 8 phone because it is a nice company perk.

Playing games on Xbox Live games is incredible and from what Claudia says, now that the certification process has matured, we can look forward to more gaming publishers migrating to the Windows phone platform. According to Claudia, glitches that are in Xbox Live Windows 7 games have been identified and fixed.

Windows 8 for the PC has touchscreen control functionality so finding out about that gaming feature in NOVA 3 for the Windows 8 phone is fantastic. Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance (NOVA) is finally back on Earth, Kal has to fight hard to save humanity from destruction. Shark Dash is a game any person or family can play while traveling in the car, or while at home as a second screen. Kids have loved playing Spider Man in video games for several generations, it has gaming history and innovative playing features. Playing Spiderman in the Windows 8 Xbox Live environment will be a natural fit for the busy or not so busy lifestyles of children and adults. Order & Chaos Online might prove to a gamers delight on the Windows 8 phone because of the more realistic gaming environment that the mobile device and X Box console produces.

Microsoft obviously believes in the Windows 8 phone and continues to squeeze out a respectable user market share. The Xbox Live is in a class all by itself right now with a majority of Sports Techie gamers. Not sure how the Surface tablet fits in but you can be sure that it will in their long-term corporate plans. It would seem to make sense then to take a hard Sports Techie look at this inner Microsoft collaboration if you create games for the smartphone, or are a serious or casual gamer.

Its a wonderful time to be a Sports Techie gamer. Playing MMORPG and individual games over the Internet or with your smartphone has never been so seamless and easy. Creating games for the Windows 8 Xbox Live ecosystem, and playing fun games on them like UFC, are both wise ideas. That last line was a Jedi mind trick.
