Gameloft and Microsoft partner up to bring hit games to Xbox Live

Neil writes: "Since the turn of the millennium, Gameloft have established themselves as one of the very top innovators in their field, creating games for various platforms. With the mobile scene being their bread and butter, you would have been able to enjoy a whole host of their titles on your iOS or Android device. Now though they are partnering up with Microsoft to see the Xbox Live service roll out across the mobile gaming landscape."

Major move by Microsoft here. Already enjoying these games with Xbox Achievements/Live, through Windows 10 on my Surface Go, but now that they are bringing them to iOS and Android, even more people will be able to experience Xbox Live no matter where they are. More of this.

Major move? These guys make rip offs of popular console games for mobile 😂

Ricegum1874d ago

Let them have some fun.

meep3161874d ago (Edited 1874d ago )

Say what you want about the games, they are popular. There’s all kinds of things I don’t like that make money, doesn’t mean I’ll dismiss them as worthless.

SPEAKxTHExTRUTH1874d ago

Name a game that’s not influenced/ripping off another game in this day and age. Go ahead I’ll wait...

343_Guilty_Spark1874d ago

And they are very good knockoffs. That racing game is high quality.

timotim1874d ago (Edited 1874d ago )

@KyRo
Regardless how you feel about the games themselves, they make some of the highest rated and most popular mobile games out there. Are you telling me this isn't a smart move???

Google Play Store:

Asphalt 9 - 4.6 out of 5 rating, 847k+ downloads
https://play.google.com/sto...

Asphalt 8 - 4.5 out of 5 rating, 8 million+ downloads
https://play.google.com/sto...

Dragon Mania Legends - 4.6 out of 5 rating, 2 million+ downloads
https://play.google.com/sto...

iOS:

Asphalt 9 - 4.8 out of 5 rating, 300k+ downloads, #2 in racing on the platform
https://itunes.apple.com/us...

Asphalt 8 - 4.7 out of 5 rating, 98k+ downloads
https://itunes.apple.com/us...

Dragon Mania Legends - 4.8 out of 5 rating, 43K+ downloads
https://itunes.apple.com/us...

This is a major move because its never been done before by a major platform holder like Microsoft. I dont see why they would stop there either. They are the only ones with the infrastructure and will to pull it off. Major titles on console, PC and mobile (phones and tablets and TV), all running Xbox Live...Im sorry but thats a smart move.

@timotim

Those are some pretty high metacritic scores.

Where are we at this moment? Are we currently celebrating review scores or are we still blaming bias journalists and clickbait reviews?

Couldn't agree more, adding Xbox Live to mobile games across IOS and Android is a wise decision. They really are expanding Xbox from the living room space.

chiefJohn1171874d ago (Edited 1874d ago )

MS making moves, is this "Lord" Phil's doing? 😂

jznrpg1874d ago (Edited 1874d ago )

Gameloft make the worst mobile games They make crappy copies of more popular games . Good fit for MS I guess

SPEAKxTHExTRUTH1874d ago

So you’re implying that MS makes crappy copies of other games? Like what for example?

TheSaint1873d ago

Crackdown 3 was a crappy copy of the first crackdown..

Pickledpepper1873d ago (Edited 1873d ago )

Crackdown 3 is the same as Crackdown? @saint. So let's start with uncharted 1,2,3,4, tomber raider 1,2,3,4, killzone 1,2,3,4, call of duty, God of war and I bet the last of us 2 has a lot of the same elements as the first.
I'm not saying these are bad games at all but you can't make a statement like that just because it's an Xbox game. If you don't like Microsoft or anything Xbox, stay out of Xbox articles!
You sorry little man

timotim1874d ago

Actually, their games are some of the highest rated and popular games on mobile platforms.

darthv721873d ago

Asphalt on the Vita is pretty good.

Casepb1874d ago

Huh, would think they would have went with Nintendo instead.

ILostMyMind1874d ago

As long as it does not hurt my gaming experience, i will just ignore XBL.

Things like losing "context" tend to happen when you create your artwork using A.I.

mastershredder4h ago

The slimiest profit mongers of all time are Gaijin. Surprised? Not at all. The apology is about a sincere are their standard asking price. Do it for the least amount (no regard for quality) and sell it for the most profit = Gaijin.

Star Wars: Hunters Review | GamingonPhone

Vince Zyle writes "Star Wars Hunters is a really fun game! It’s not as good as other Star Wars games like Star Wars Battlefront 2 but coming from a developer like Zynga who worked on very underwhelming and low-quality titles before, this is a major upgrade.

There’s not much objectively wrong with the game aside from the work needed to make visuals smoother during animations. That’s one of the biggest issues at present alongside frame drops that occur from time to time when there’s too much going on which isn’t too bad but certainly noticeable.

In conclusion, Star Wars Hunters is a game for arena shooter fans who are looking for an action-filled game. Some of the other issues will hopefully be ironed out with future updates."
