Seeing as the titles carry the “Xbox Live” tag, it only makes sense that all of the features currently enjoyed by Xbox 360 owners will also be available on the Windows Phone 7 as well, including avatars, friends lists, achievements, messaging, the ability to view your games library and “find, try and buy new games either in the Marketplace or Games hub.” There will also be a Spotlight section for things like breaking news and tip and tricks.

Microsoft is showing off the Windows Phone 7 at Gamescom 2010 today, and we’ll be in attendance, so be sure to check back soon for our impressions.
