Microsoft demos game that runs on Windows Phone, Windows and Xbox 360

Microsoft was slated to give us more details on Windows Phone 7 series development at Mix10, but now we’re getting some interesting details prior to that conference. Microsoft’s Eric Rudder, speaking at TechEd Middle East, discussed how developers can create games that will share code across Windows, Windows Phone and Xbox 360. That means a developer who works on a game, can do so and then roll it out across three platforms. That’s big news for developers and for the platform. The game shares 90% of the code and plays on all three platforms. For developers, that’s less time and more results. The Indiana Jones game shown isn’t earthshattering, but it’s the news behind it that should help development on the Windows Phone 7 Series platform.

More news should come out of MIX10, but this is good, real good.
