Attending developers prepping for presentation

Last week, Wednesday 18th to be exact, we headed to the Windows Phone User Group meetup in London. The Shooting Star was the venue of the day's presentations and talks about Windows, Windows Phone, apps and other miscellaneous topics. It's a perfect chance for developers to pitch ideas, make contacts, receive help and advice, and meet us folk from Windows Phone Central.

The reason we pop along is simple - to help you (the developing community) receive as much exposure to our readership and beyond as possible. Without developers, apps and games we wouldn't have the same complete Windows Phone experience we have today, so it's important we provide developers with the opportunities to drive more traffic their way. From reviews to update coverage, Windows Phone Central has the means to help developers kick-start promotion and marketing.

Just two weeks after Full House Poker’s launch on Xbox Live, Microsoft Game Studios will debut another big first-party title. Fable Coin Golf is coming on March 30!

Fable Coin Golf’s gameplay is based on British pub games like Bar Billiards. Players try to shoot the Hero Puck into the Pillar of Light in as few shots as possible while collecting gold and other items along the way. Authentic enemies from Microsoft’s Fable role-playing franchise and other hazards ensure a lively experience. The game features sharp, cartoonish 3D graphics that really take advantage of the Windows Phone 7 hardware.

Fable Coin Golf also connects to other Fable games. Gold earned in the Windows Phone 7 version transfers to Fable III on Xbox 360 and PC. Interestingly, Fable Coin Golf was originally intended to launch on March 2, alongside the Fable III “Traitor’s Keep” DLC. Instead, I Love Katamari was the March 2 Xbox Live release. Fable Coin Golf has seen some delays, but at least we’ll still be coin golfing before March is out.

Fable Coin Golf is launching as an Xbox Live title on March 30. It will cost $4.99. We’ll have a full review shortly after its release.

See our video hands on from CES after the break...
