A few weeks ago we told you about an interesting job listing that hinted that Microsoft was looking to bring its Xbox LIVE gaming portal to iOS. The listing called for a developer to help the company port its LIVE gaming client to Apple’s platform.

Microsoft kickstarted the project back in December of last year when it introduced an official Xbox LIVE application for the iPhone. But according to a recent Forbes report, that was only the beginning…

Quoting a Microsoft Spokesman, Forbes writes:

“While the Xbox Live experiences and games always work best on the Windows platform, we understand that some Xbox fans may be using other types of devices. To satisfy that need, we are working to extend a few of our Xbox experiences and titles to other platforms.”

Given that iOS and Android are the two most popular platforms, we’re thinking that Microsoft will start with them. As we mentioned before, this could mean that hundreds, if not thousands, of Xbox LIVE games would become available on iOS.

Here’s hoping Nintendo is taking notes.

Are there any Xbox LIVE games you’d like to see come to iOS?

  • Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3

        Obviously you’re blind.. And no FPS will ever be good on iOS without a controller peripheral that has dual joysticks. Need I continue..

        Android devices can use Xbox and PS3 controllers, and if I’m not mistaken the iPad can use game controllers too.

        With Android, you also get HDMI ports so you can plug your controller into the USB port and your TV into the HDMI port.

        True that !! People always go on about phones taking over consoles, bullshit is all I say. The day that you can use a phone to play COD is a hell of a long way off, for 1, touch screen controls suck ass for anything other than angry birds etc and covering the screen with your fingers is stupid and shit tbh … When you can use a PS3 style pad to play the games then maybe i’d entertain it but even then i’ll never switch from a console.

        I’m gonna stop you right there… Please have some dignity, and don’t ask for “thumbs up if we agree”. First, this isn’t YouTube. And by the way, “likes” come in naturally, when you say something that’s worth liking, which you’re far from.

        Simple life advice, at no cost.

    If those game shown in the picture is porting to iOS….then ill pass

  • They are going to be arcade games and the first will probably be Hexic HD since its available on all of there devices (correct me if I’m wrong). Microsoft cannot port a full console game to iOS.

    I don’t care to see any Live games ported over and having to “repurchase” them as much as I would love to access my Live account and be able to access my games to play them on my iDevice. That for me would be the best option.

    Nintendo as a Japanese company is way too proud to do this. Until they have a real massive financial emergency. I love Nintendo but their new console really doesn’t have anything impressive. They should just release all their games on all major platforms and see if it is a good market. The 3DS was just a gimmick and with the popularity and game availability of phones, they should start exploring a way to be kept alive or just go the same way that RIM is going.

      You really think the Wii U ‘doesn’t have anything impressive’ ? Have you seen the controller? Its gunna have a 6.2″ screen,mic,gryo,cam,also gunna have NFC . I hate how everyone is against Nintendo for them not porting there games over, there 3DS would slump, why can’t anyone get this?

        And on microsoft, I doubt they’ll give games support to iOS, considering that Windows Phone 7 isn’t going to well, theyll add support to windowsos phones id guess

        Come on, Nintendo doesn’t stand a chance. The GameBoy era is over, man, and Nintendo should get f*cking real and start making games worth paying for. I mean, the 3DS?

        I DON’T THINK SO.

    Pokemon on iOS without an emulator @_@

  • Would Apple even allow this? Seems like it’d replace GameCenter. Also, I’d rather have Steam with mobile games now that there’s a Steam iOS app 😛

    Come on. “A few” does not equate to “hundreds, if not thousands”.
