Microsoft Xbox Live Games Coming to iOS, Android?

Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox Live games will be made available to non-Microsoft Phone platforms i.e. Apple's iOS and Google's Android.

Forbes reported that a representative of Microsoft confirmed that, "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", and thus to satisfy those customers the company has decided to extend Xbox Live to other platforms.

Even though the representative did not specifically name iOS or Android, these two happen to be the biggest mobile OS around today and it is most likely that these two platforms will be Redmond based Xbox maker's primary choices.

Last year the company introduced its very first iPhone/iPad game called Kinectimals besides expanding their My Xbox Live app for the Apple's iOS.

With this initiative software giant Microsoft will further strengthen its market position in the mobile gaming marketplace and also earn huge amount of revenue. In fact, the company's Entertainment and Devices division that comprises of Windows Phone, Xbox and Kinect, has emerged as one of its primary sources of revenues during the past few quarters.
