Microsoft Games Studios’ ‘Mobile Gaming’ division to deliver “games and entertainment”.
Microsoft wants to come out all guns blazing with the launch of Windows Phone 7. A recent job listing suggests that Microsoft is looking to establish a mobile gaming studio aimed at developing games and entertainment products exclusively for the platform.
A job posting on Microsoft’s website states: “Microsoft Games Studios is establishing a new Studio – MGS Mobile Gaming – focused on bringing games and entertainment to the mobile life that people lead. Our vision is to deliver games and entertainment so good that people will want them always with them, on a service that makes them social, connected and relevant anywhere their life goes.”
With Xbox Live integration and a new studio to power games for the platform, Microsoft has developed the right tools to rattle Apple iPhone’s gaming market share in the handheld category. Only time will tell how Microsoft succeeds.
