Microsoft has been working hard to bring all their platforms closer with Windows Phone+Xbox 360 and even the Windows operating system together.Making attempts like bringing the Kinect hardware to Windows as well as the much awaited Windows Phone to Xbox 360 integration.
It looks like we are ready to get our hands on such type of integration for Windows Phones and Xbox 360 with the next version of Sonic Game Sonic the Hedgehog: Ep II.The game will allow a user who is playing that game on his/her Windows Phone to pause it on the phone and then later on he/she can continue playing the game(resume) on their Xbox 360 on the big screen.It will be the first Xbox Live game to support this feature.
As demonstrated earlier by Official Xbox Magazine for the game which is slated to be released this Spring on multiple platforms like Xbox 360, Playstation, iOS and Windows Phone. Talking about the unique feature of the game Ken Balough, Digital Grand Manager on Sonic Episode II, said,
“one of the cool things about it is that the Windows Mobile 7 (sic) and the Xbox are going to be able to work in tandem in ways that are completely new. So when you pick up the Windows Mobile 7 and you’ll be able to play Sonic Episode II, save it, stop, boot up your Xbox 360 and pick up right where you left off. And that’s a really cool thing Microsoft has going between the devices and I’m a huge fan of it”
With this release we can expect some more such games to bring this feature in their upcoming editions for Windows Phone and Xbox 360.
