I read on some website that Widows Phone 7 games will all have 200 gamerscore just like XBLA games. The one thing I think is to get achievements and such, they will have to be approved by MS or something. Kinda like how the Xbox 360 is now. It has XBLA and Indie games. So, anyone can release an indie game on WP7, but they won't have achievements. To get achievements, you have to submit the game to MS for certification. Part of the certification process is MS making sure the achievements are a joke.

In my opinion, this has to be done. Crap 99 cent games flooding WP7 could ruin the whole idea of gamerscore. I've read Sony won't allow trophies on the PSP because of how easily the PSP can be hacked. They don't want people hacking every game to get all the trophies and then make the whole trophy system meaningless.

As for WP7 itself, I'm very interested in the Xbox Live aspect. Problem is I just bought an iPhone 4 at launch. So, I won't be switching any time soon.

What I am hoping for is MS putting this same software on the Zune HD. I would pick up a Zune in a second if I could have Xbox Live and these games on it.

The distinction between XBLA and Indie games makes sense.

Do you have a link to this article I can put in the OP?

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

The very last sentence of this article says the games will be capped at 200 gamerscore.

http://www.joystiq.c...d-launch-games/

The bit I said about XBLA and Indie games was just my thoughts. I don't think anything I've read discussed what I was talking about.

edit: Oh wait, 2 bullet points from the bottom it does mention almost exactly what I said. Maybe I did get it from somewhere. :-)

Xbox Live features will only be available to devs who go through Microsoft to publish the games -- Indie Games can still be published on the phone for free or however much those devs want to set the price at

Thanks, edited the OP.

I wonder if MS will set it up like the 360...new XBLA games every week on a specific day.

this is cool but how will it work? as far as what company will provide service for this? costs and such?? I already have an app on my iphone that lets me see my friends list, whos online and what they're playing, when they were last on, my achievements and when I unlocked them and what not so basically everything shown this app does it already minus being able to play those games on it but don't do any gaming really on my iphone anyways.

If you don't play games on your iPhone, the main appeal (IMO) is lost.

Gamasutra has an interesting article about Windows Phone 7.

http://www.gamasutra...ows_Phone_7.php

To answer a previous question here is a small section from the article.

Like on the console, "there's a demo built into every game," says Unangst, and also similar to the console, Microsoft will be managing release dates as well as pricing and game selection. "A few" games will be released every week to Xbox Live on Windows Phone 7.

What do you guys think the pricing will be? Not sure they will go with low price, I tend to think right now, it will be high from at least 400 MS points to make sure not to lower the value the stuff on Xbox 360 marketplace. It would be so nice if they were cheap.

It won't. ZuneHD = Tegra 1 Processor. Windows phone 7 = Tegra 2. They aren't very compatible.

I don't want it on the existing Zune HD. Well, it can come out for it, but I wouldn't want that. I want a new Zune HD with Xbox Live.

Considering barely anything comes out at 400 points on XBLA anymore, I'd bet these games will take over that price point. I'd expect some bigger games to even be 800 points.

they cant expect to base the price on XBLA games. Many games on iphone are a lot cheaper. I mean Civilization Revolution on iphone is only .99

I really don't get the appeal of the OS look at the very least, it looks like it was thought up by a 5 yr old. I also don't get gaming using an accelerometer, it would make me want to pull my hair out more than play on one of these portable phones... With that said, I wouldn't buy a PSP but if M$ came out with a portable gaming system (literal make a 360 "portable") I might entertain it. Achievements still blow too...
