Thus far, Microsoft’s official presentations featuring the revamped Games Hub in Windows Phone 7 has been rather uninformative. Seeing as how mobile gaming is exploding and that Xbox Live — hands down the best console gaming environment — is joining the fray, it only makes sense for Microsoft to beef up WP7 in this area.

With that said, the Windows Phone team updated their blog this afternoon with a slew of newly detailed features and images giving us a glimpse of what we have in store for WP7′s upcoming Mango update. The most notable features include: improved Xbox Live messaging, ability to edit XBL profile, integrated achievements w/ comparison views of your friends, improved Spotlight content, fully animated 3D avatars and improved game request notifications.

Is it the full Xbox Experience ported to the mobile world? Not yet. But it’s getting there. Full gallery after the break…
