Pac-Man Kart Rally is set to offer local wireless multiplayer action to Windows Phones
The race for supremacy in the mobile gaming market is surely heating up, and with that, Microsoft is planning to be a profound figure in it. As we continue to see additional Xbox integration with some of the games for Windows Phone, Microsoft is simultaneously trying to get hardcore gamers to converge together in using its Windows Phones.

Fortunately, things are seemingly starting to ramp up, as Pac-Man Kart Rally is reportedly the first Xbox Live game for Windows Phone to feature local multiplayer gaming, which is something that a lot of people thought would’ve been available since the launch of the mobile platform.

Specifically, the game will allow players to play against one another via local Wi-Fi. With the faster connection, it seemingly would offer instantaneous action, so that the experience won’t be marred by any slowdown or lag.

So far, it’s speculated for Pac-Man Kart Rally to arrive this coming Wednesday, May 2nd. Indeed, it’s a great feature to have for those looking to be a bit more social when it comes to playing games. On the other hand, gamers can also anticipate Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2, which brings forth the cool feature of continuing the action at home on an Xbox 360 console.

I just love it when a developer comes up with a truly original idea for a game. Cartoonish characters living in a vividly colorful world, riding go carts, power-ups in floating crates adorned with question marks. Nintendo wouldn't dream this up in a million years!

Halo Kart Racing...or maybe Spartan Kart Racing....you can choose Spartan or Elite and can choose from 5 different vehicles per team....seems like a cool idea.
