Microsoft reveals list of Xbox Live games coming to Windows 8

First set of Xbox Live games heading to Windows 8 announced; some titles to be exclusive to the OS.

The first set of Xbox Live games to be available on Windows 8 has been revealed. An announcement on Major Nelson's blog listed 40 titles that will be making their way to the OS, including titles from Microsoft Studios, Rovio, Miniclip, Gameloft, ZeptoLab, Glu Mobile, and Halfbrick Studios. Some of the titles will be exclusive to Windows 8, but all will be playable on any Windows 8 PC, laptop or tablet.

Previously, Microsoft announced that Xbox Live would be available on Windows 8, rolling out with the launch of the operation system.

Earlier this year, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer confirmed that the Kinect motion-sensing camera peripheral would be coming to the PC, saying that, "We'll support that in a formal way in the right time, and when we have an announcement to make, we'll make it." (The company has since released the Kinect software development kit for the PC.)
