Assassin's Creed, Crackdown & Castlevania Coming To Xbox Live On Mobile Phones

When Xbox Live launches on Windows Mobile 7 later this year, it'll be launching with a surprisingly large and varied games lineup.

Microsoft today revealed the launch roster for the service's mobile phone debut, and aside from the usual stuff you'd expect - like Bejeweled - there are some pleasant surprises, like the adorable-looking puzzle game ilomilo.

    Let the Gaming Smart Phone War begins....

    Apple iPhone vs MS WM7 Phone vs Sony Android Phone

    Control wise, I'll give the edge to Sony Android, since it has PSPGo like control pad

    Games wise, iPhone is leading (since the other 2 doesn't exists yet), but will time turn the course?

      Don't forget the HTC Desire!

        I did not forget, just that Sony Adriod should be able to play all the games that HTC support.

    You know, I actually considered buying a Smartphone, just for all the games and gadgets. In order to get one, I'd either have to fork over more money than it would cost to rebuild my PC to buy the phone outright, or be tied in to a $50 a month plan. When I realised that I don't actually make very many phone calls ($30 of pre-paid credit lasts me up to three months), it seemed rather silly.

    I'll stick to my DS thanks!

      You should consider iTouch instead, no plan, and can still use most of iPhone Apps/Games

    No doubt that one will be so into playing the games that when the girlfriend calls with a life threatening emergency like "Can you get some batteries for my hair straightener?" while you’re on your second schooner down the local that the phone will run out of juice and you'll be in the shit again because you thought she was going to say "How about you buy a case and get a couple t-bones." instead.

    Theres 5 Asphalt games now? MILK MILK MILK

    god damn it... this is gonna make me wish i hadn't bought an iphone 4...

    earning achievements on my phone to add to my already 50k+ gamerscore would be awesome!
