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 😂

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.

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

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

@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

Dragon Mania Legends - 4.8 out of 5 rating, 43K+ downloads

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.

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

jznrpg453d ago (Edited 453d ago )

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

SPEAKxTHExTRUTH453d ago

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

TheSaint453d ago

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

Pickledpepper452d ago (Edited 452d 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

timotim453d ago

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

darthv72452d ago

Asphalt on the Vita is pretty good.

Casepb453d ago

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

ILostMyMind453d ago

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