Windows Phone 7 will soon have a new update that will be called Mango. Prior to its release itself, Mango has become a much talked about subject and is been awaited by many to be released. As per reports published recently, this update will introduce a new service, Fast Async, to Windows Phone that will provide multiplayer gaming experience to the users. The buzz is already that Microsoft has plans to bring in many XBOX LIVE features in the Windows Phone 7.5 Mangoupdate.If the reports are to be believed, apart from being used in Windows Phone, this service will also be used on different XBOX LIVE platforms. This service is going to be an important component of the upcoming Mango update, which might come very soon, probably by October end.
According to Microsoft, this service will enhance the ‘turn by turn’ based multiplayer games, and also asynchronous gaming experience of users. This would mean that XBOX LIVE games can now easily manage both game data and game sessions.
With the release of the upcoming Windows 8, and the Windows Phone 7 Mango update, you will be able to enjoy the XBOX LIVE games on three different screens, Windows 8, Windows Phone and XBOX 360 game console.
So much rework and development of gaming technologies indicates that maybe Microsoft has now decided to compete directly with the Apple’s Game Center for iOS platform. With Google soon going to join the competition, it would be hard to say which one of these three will beat the market and make a mark.
