You’d think releasing a Games Hub service on a platform would require the presence of actual games. That certainly isn’t stopping Microsoft from building an awesome gaming infrastructure in its latest version of WP7, no doubt banking on the fact that obsessing over achievements takes up the majority of some people’s gaming time anyway.
So, no more traipsing over the Xbox Live Extras to get the complete picture, the entire experience has been unified, integrated and let’s not forget optimized. Xbox Live messaging improvements, 3D animated avatar, improved Collection view, there’s a lot to like in the new update. Unfortunately, still not that much to play, but definitely a lot to like. Sorry, Microsoft, you don’t get to call WP7 a gaming platform when the Xperia Play has more desirable exclusives.
