Microsoft’s expansion of their services beyond their own console continues with Gameloft bringing Xbox Live features to three titles on iOS and Android! Those titles are:
Asphalt 8: Airborne
Asphalt 9: Legends
Dragon Mania Legends
With this, Gameloft becomes the first mobile game developer to integrate and support Xbox Live on the mobile platform. Microsoft made this possible by earlier announcing a cross-platform sandbox developer’s kit (SDK) which opened up such features to mobile developers.
The SDK allows developers to have a choice as to which Xbox Live features they wish to enable or disable. Microsoft is truly working to bring a unified gaming experience to the industry. If proven successful, perhaps a certain other company (COUGHsonyCOUGH) would like to get in on the act and participate as well.
