Xbox LIVE Will Power Windows 8′s Entertainment Options

With the launch of Windows 8 on the horizon, Microsoft is taking big steps to unify their platforms. Xbox Live, Microsoft’s online gaming community for the Xbox 360 and WP7, is making its way to Windows 8 next year!

In an interview, the VP of Global Marketing at Microsoft, Mike Delman had this to say about their exciting new plans:

Interviewer: Speaking of phone, I was surprised we didn’t hear about connections between Xbox and Windows Phone here at E3.

Delman: Live has been successful on the Windows Phone. Live will be built into the PC. It will be the service where you get your entertainment. We were talking about it — you will not just see consoles and handhelds at this show next year, this show’s going to morph into other devices.

Interviewer: How will your services and content be part of Windows 8?

Delman: There will be a lot of similarities in design and service philosophy. Whether it’s us or Apple or anybody else, people want to be able to navigate through multiple devices in a certain ecosystem very seamlessly so we’re committed to that.

Stay tuned for updates!
