First Xbox Live games appear for Windows Phone

As promised, the first Xbox Live games for Windows Phone 7 have appeared on Zune Marketplace, Hexic Rush and Flowerz. Here are some shots from the Zune PC software’s Marketplace experience.

    I haven’t seen you mention it before, how is this displayed in the Zune PC interface alongside Zune HD Apps?

      Oddly, they’re not displayed in the Zune PC software. They’re downloaded directly to the phone, and never appear on the PC at all. So the phone has to be connected in order to download through the PC.
