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?
