Microsoft Working On Phone-To-Console Gaming

Posted By | On 25th, Aug. 2010

According to Microsoft, they are hoping to produce real-time multiplayer gameplay between Windows Phone 7 devices and Xbox 360 over wi-fi.

Despite Windows Phone 7 being able to support only turn-based multiplayer between phones, Greg Milligan revealed that a real-time synchronous multiplayer is being worked on.

“So initially, we’re turn by turn-based, we are working on real-time phone-to-console, likely initially through Wi-Fi – again, operator networks are sensitive to that.” said Milligan

“That’s not on day one; day one will be turn-by-turn as well as companion-type gaming where you play a level on the phone and it may unlock a level or a weapon or some special achievement on the console game.”

“But, yeah – absolutely working on phone-to-console real-time. That is something we’re working on and expect to have in the near future.” he said.

Windows Phone 7 is due for release at the end of this year.
