Microsoft mulling XBOX Live games for Android?

Is Microsoft considering  developing some of their XBOX Live games for Android and other platforms?  That answer depends largely on how you construe a recent statement by a Microsoft spokesperson.  Speaking in an interview with Forbes, it was indicated that the company is looking to expand the reach of select titles beyond the console and onto other platforms.  And as you all know the two top platforms to even consider these days would be Android and iOS.

To be fair, the spokesperson did not say specifically where some of these titles would end up nor did they lay out a time frame.  That said, it’s tough to think of any other routes to take than to get the games on these two operating systems as quickly as possible.

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.

As of today there are already two titles available for iOS, XBOX Live and Kinectimals, both of which are said to be quite popular.

You Tell Us

Are there any XBOX games you’d like to see brought over to Android?  What would you tell Microsoft if you had the chance?
