Microsoft smartphones might not lure video gamers

Some analysts are skeptical that the phones' tie-in with the Xbox will be enough to lure gamers to the phones. (Industry, Mobile, Windows Phone 7, Xbox 360)

The developer support has not been shown yet, games speak louder than words and nobody has seen any yet. Even Rovio has spoken out against the platform and has no plans to bring angry birds over to WP7.

Android and iOS have a proven repertoire of apps and games, they probably needn't worry too much about MS phones they don't have a great record at all.

I really like the look of the up coming HTC HD7 running W7 mobile, and quite honestly the xbox live integration doesn't make it anymore tempting, or lack of games currently shown doesn't worry me either, they'll come and at the very least be on par with the iPhones.

Click on any "PSP phone" articles here at N4G and it's pretty clear most people want dedicated hardware for their various needs, I just want my phone to be a great phone and offer social intergration/Internet and what ever, game wise I'm not looking for a portable xbox, the usual mini games suit me just fine on my phone.
