Microsoft , according to Reuters, is planning to bring some of its most popular games for Xbox and Windows to the iOS mobile platform among others. In this way, to cite one of them, Age of Empires would experience a new youth in a device that we’ve already proven to be perfect for the strategy genre, the iPad. All for this same year.
In addition, Age of Empires will not only be the first game they will be carrying, but it will also be under the free to play model and there will be options to make purchases from the application itself. Something you can already imagine what it will be used for.
I certainly find a very interesting and intelligent move . There is a great catalogue of classic games that could return, with a good adaptation to the new methods of control, to conquer millions of players that for age or other reasons did not have the opportunity to play them.
Too bad other big companies don’t do anything like that. And I’m thinking directly of Nintendo. I think that, even though they have their own business selling consoles (Nintendo 3DS or Wii U), maybe they could use some risk. Not just because they would make a lot of money, can you imagine a Super Mario Bross for iOS, but it would also serve as a gateway for their consoles. You’re releasing a Mario game that will serve as the epilogue to the new 3DS or Wii U adventure.
Well, let’s leave it to the big N to figure out what’s good for them. The important thing is that we will have to be attentive to go knowing the titles that Microsoft has planned to carry. Which one would you like?
