PlayPhone Social Gaming Network announced at Mobile World Congress yesterday that they now support Windows Phone. And in doing so, it appears to have become the first social gaming service to support all major operating systems. PlayPhone, which already supports Android, iOS, HTML5, Adobe AIR and Unity, is an online community for multiplayer and social gaming. It allows its 35+ million users to interact, play games and consume virtual goods in a cross-platform environment.
“Microsoft and its partners have put extensive resources toward the rapid adoption of the Windows Phone 7 platform worldwide” said Anders Evju, SVP and GM of PlayPhone. “PlayPhone is committed to cross-platform mobile gaming. Gamers on all leading mobile devices – Android, iPhone, iPad, WP7, etc. – can jump into the PlayPhone SGN to play some of the best games out there with their friends. We call this the PlayPhone advantage."
The PlayPhone Social Gaming Network SDK for Windows Phone is now available to developers. Visit their website for more info.
