What do Plants vs. Zombies, Hydro Thunder, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 and Doodle Jump have in common? They’re all games everyone is probably sick to death of by now but Microsoft is treating as hot new releases for the purposes of hyping up its Windows Phone 7 platform, which if it can’t get into consumer hands through the general purpose app door, it just might through the gaming window.
Or that’s the theory. In practice, a few tired ports won’t avail Microsoft much of anything apart from looking even more like someone who’s so late to the party they need to check a calendar instead of a watch. Microsoft does need to get behind gaming in a big way, but as always, it’ll take them about five years or so to put two and Xperia Play together in order to figure out what they should be doing, long after everyone’s sick of it already.
