First Wave Of 'Xbox Live On Windows 8' Titles Announced

Microsoft has unveiled the first selection of Xbox Live On Windows 8 games, which will be downloadable and playable on any Windows 8 device (PCs, tablets and presumably phones) through the preinstalled Xbox Live app. Note that this launch wave mainly consists of tablet and touch-friendly games, including offerings from Rovio, Halfbrick and Microsoft Studios (many of which are available on Windows Phone 7). However, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, Skulls Of The Shogun provide a slightly meatier option.

Xbox Live On Windows 8 offers a familiar Metro-themed dashboard complete with avatar and achievements - effectively acting a bit like an app store or alternative games marketplace. Note that the service is entirely separate from Games For Windows Live, which will apparently continue to operate once Windows 8 launches this October.
