For those who want even more information on Microsoft's plans for Windows Phone 7 and Xbox integration, clear your calendar for this Thursday August 19, 2010, at 2:00 p.m. PST (4:00 p.m. CST).
Microsoft will be hosting yet-another "Backstage" video chat even, this time with none other than Major Nelson (Xbox folks know him pretty well). There you can
Sounds cool. It may just be a rehash of what we've seen so far, but maybe we'll catch a glimpse of something new. To access, you'll need to sign up, which is easy enough with a Live mail account or not. You can do that here and get the event details.
We'll of course try to do a recap for you, 'cause that's how we roll.

I'm going to go with a rehash of what we've already seen, MS is not really in the habit of keeping mum on their biggest advantages, if there was anything else to announce we would have heard it already.
They said that they'll have more games besides the 50 or so they already talked about that we'll find out from now till WP7 releases, so I do infact think and expect we'll get more games that we don't know about yet. Also after RTM there will be new games every week, matching XBL on the 360.
There will be more games, I just dont expect any earth shattering announcement from the live event on Thursday, if there was anything really big to announce we would have heard it at Gamescom already.
Yeah, it'll be a recap of Gamescom with a live Q&A and a bunch of stuff which most of us here have already seen. Maybe one of the reps will let some minute new detail slip and we can dissect it for a week or so until the next tidbit confirms it... if we're lucky.
