Microsoft is adding two classic games to Xbox LIVE for the Windows Phone 7 marketplace and, better yet, they are free. Konami’s PES 2011 – Pro Evolution Soccer also gets discounted as the Deal of the Week for the Windows-branded smartphone.
Minesweeper has been eating up time on Windows PCs for years but now it is on the Windows Phone 7 for free complete with achievements, powerups. It comes with two modes of play, Classic and Speed modes, and four levels of difficulty as players try to clear the minefield without setting one off.
No smartphone is complete without a game of Sudoku and Windows Phone 7 already has quite a few in its Marketplace. This is the first Xbox LIVE supported Sudoku game though with achievements and all the other LIVE niceties. Like Minesweeper, it comes with two modes of play, Classic and Lightning, plus unlockable powerups.
Meanwhile, the Xbox LIVE Deal of the Week for Windows is PES 2011 – Pro Evolution Soccer. Normally $4.99, this soccer sim is now $2.99 through Tuesday, August 16.
