Microsoft Wants Xbox And PC Games On Apple And Android Ecosystems

Microsoft logoIs Microsoft looking for a way to enlarge the pie of their market share? It does seem to be the case, as there are whispers from industry insiders close to the inner workings of corporations who prefer to remain anonymous, that games which used to be available only on Microsoft’s Xbox and Windows-based computers will soon be made available for the iPhone as well as Android platforms later in 2013. Sources familiar with a licensing deal which was agreed upon by Microsoft and Japanese smartphone game maker Klab, Inc., shared that particular detail, touting that the deal would see Klab develop Microsoft’s computer games so that they will eventually make their way to iTunes for iOS devices, and on Google Play for Android-powered devices.

One of the very first games that will debut later this year under this particular agreement will be the cult classic, “Age of the Empires”, and it is tipped to be a free to play title. Should this agreement actually be made official, then we can look forward to a very different gaming environment for iOS and Android platforms, but hopefully that will only happen if Microsoft and the developer(s) do not botch up their respective tasks.
