Over the past few months I got a new phone which runs on the Windows operating system. I have never been a big Xbox fan but since I got the phone I’ve been very curious on how it synced everything together. Using your Windows Live account you can sync all of the devices together. I have my Xbox Live avatar now dancing on one of my live tiles. Not only that but I can show off my achievements using my phone and what games I am currently playing. You can access your friends achievements. Those features seems pretty cool but I can’t say much considering I’m just starting off utilizing the features.
One of the games I’ve started playing includes Fable 2, since I’m not allowed to play Fable 3 until that is completed. So far it seems interesting but I found out there is a game I can play on my phone that will actually give me advantages in Fable 3. It is $4.99 to purchase and it called Fable: Coin Golf. There are several games that you can purchase on your windows phone that will benefit you in your Xbox gaming experience. It’s a nice touch but it still have a long ways to go.
Blizzard has a few applications out that allows you access to your World of Warcraft account. The best one was the auction house application because even when you are far away from your computer you can still make sure you’re making money. There is also an application to keep in touch with your guild or even to see the armory.
Gaming has become much more than just a past time, it has developed into so much more. The need to keep in touch with your gaming world has created these applications that you can bring along with your phones. Yet, the idea has not gotten to a point where gives any substantial advantages. What if not only does it gives you advantages but becomes a necessity, when that comes around there will be many angry consumers.
