At this time, the gaming network Xbox Live is compatible with a single mobile platform, Windows Phone from Microsoft for the note. But since there are about 40 million Xbox Live users in the world and not all (for the moment, even the majority) possess a Windows Phone, Microsoft has decided to extend its gaming network to other mobile operating systems. According to Forbes, a spokesman for Microsoft said recently:
Although the experience of Xbox Live and the games work best on Windows platform, we realize that some fans of the Xbox could make use of other types of devices. To meet this need, we are working to extend some of our experiences and Xbox game on other platforms.
Certainly, no other platforms have been specified to which the service will address, but since Android and iPhone OS are currently the market leader, it makes sense for Microsoft to consider. Microsoft has launched Xbox Live app for iPhone and iPad in December, but did not offer the full experience of Xbox Live users will achieve if the Redmond giant extends the service.
