Advanced features coming to Xbox Live for Windows Phone?A last bit of Windows Phone 7 Xbox Live news.

Kudo Tsunoda, the Kinect creative director has hinted the technology could come to Windows phone 7.

“It’s all stuff that you could integrate into a multitude of devices, whether it’s phones or it’s PC’s, or anything that requires some sort of input”.

“I just think it’s so much easier naturally using your voice or using gestures” he said.

When asked directly by Pocket-lint if the technology will appear in Windows Phone he apparently joked:

“It’s all stuff that you could work into phones as well if you wanted to…if like you worked at a company that did stuff with phones and PCs then maybe something like that would be possible”.

A company like Microsoft perhaps?

Speaking to IGN Kevin Unangst, senior director of PC and mobile gaming at Microsoft, confirmed that realtime multiplayer capabilities were on the roadmap for Xbox Live on the Windows Phone 7.

“Yes certainly it’s on the roadmap,” said Unangst. “Right now we’re focusing on delivering the best quality games we can get — no matter the platform they come from — exclusives, and the Avatar experience. But I would absolutely expect that over time you’ll see the multiplayer capabilities be expanded. You bet.”
