Windows Phone 7 Series – a gaming platform?

Over the next week we will probably be hearing a lot more about Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Series offering as well as some more tidbits about the new Metro UI that is suppose to being powering it; as well as the Zune HD, given that the big MIX10 conference is starting on Monday.

However word is beginning to leak out courtesy of the team at Engadget that Microsoft will also be showing off the game playing abilities of the new Windows Phone 7 Series. With the phone being powered by the nVidia Tegra 2 chipset those who have seen two of the games being prepped say the graphics are pretty sweet.

Here’s some screen shots that Engadget was able to get their hands on of  The Harvest and Battle Punks.
