TE: Microsoft Showcases Windows Live Integration

March 8th, 2010 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: XNA | No Comments »

Windows-phone Microsoft’s Eric Rudder took the stage over at TechEd Middle East and demonstrated the experience of a full cross platform game over Xbox Live Arcade. Needless to say, he wasn’t playing GTA IV.

During the demo, he shows how he starts a game on a PC and then continues it on his Windows Phone 7 Series device followed by playing the game on an Xbox. He also gives a quick overview of the compatibility of the code used for the game. Apparently it is not that difficult to translate a game from XBLA to mobile. The biggest issue is translating controls and handling the screensize.
