Platform holder claims new mobile service functions as a 'mobile console'
Microsoft's Xbox division has given Windows Phone 7 the biggest possible endorsement by claiming that the mobile device is the closest thing to an Xbox handheld.
Speaking to Kotaku at CES, the company said Windows Phone 7 "is our mobile platform for games."
Kevin Unangst, senior global director of PC and mobile gaming at Microsoft, said: "The same people who make the Halo game, the same development folks, work on this. This is our mobile console."
