First Look: Xbox Game Room

 

We mentioned the news of Game Room coming to Windows Phone 7 a few days ago and we were able to catch a demo of the games while at CES this week.

Game Room will bring classic, arcade style games to the Windows Phones. Initial titles will include Shao-Lin's Road, Asteroids, and Centipede with more to come. The games have been ported from the original and game play and controls seem to represent the original very good.  Games will have shared leader board and achievements that will add to the appeal of these classic games.

The games look good but does anyone else feel old when we're reminded that it's been thirty years since we've played these games in the arcade?

  • Wow. I'm actually looking forward to getting this one, assuming it isn't overpriced.
