Windows Phone 8 will support P2P gaming between phones, Windows 8

Windows Phone 8 will include NFC support, Microsoft announced today at the Windows Phone Summit, which will allow for endusers to pay for merchandise from their phone. But NFC on Windows Phone will also allow users to play peer to peer games between phones and Windows 8.

Joe Belfiore today demoed a Windows Phone app, titled Spell It, that was ported to Windows 8. If an app is ported to Windows 8, you can open it on Windows Phone 8, press the phone close to a Windows 8 device, and the Windows 8 equivalent will open allowing two users to play with each other over peer to peer wifi.

Windows Phone 8 will debut this fall.
