More Windows Phone 7 gaming titbits

Some more videos shot at GamesCon, where Microsoft unveiled their Windows Phone 7 Xbox Live line-up has percolated onto the internet, adding some more interesting info.

Of note regarding Xbox Live integration is that users will be able to message their friends on consoles directly, a feature which I think automatically makes the device a compelling must-have for the hardcore Xbox Live user.

While the platform currently lacks direct multi-play action (and there are plenty of hints that this will be coming in the future) turn by turn gaming is actually also very compelling, due to its asynchronous nature, meaning you can play against some-one without interrupting their work flow.

The second video below shows off come games, and again reveals that IloMilo is in fact a first-party title from Microsoft Games Studios, and that they worked directly with SouthEnd Games to bring the software to the platform.  If the game, which is clearly a high-quality and appealing title, is any indication of what we can expect from Microsoft’s first party titles we can probably look forward to some amazing games in the future.

See the games demo after the break.
