Microsoft bringing the Xbox brand, games to iOS, Android?

It looks like Microsoft could be uniting its Xbox brand and Xbox Live games with Android operating systems and even iOS, if a recent report is to be believed.

An alleged developer source has apparently told Business Insider that the company is looking to sink its teeth into these services before Sony do with the PlayStation Suite.

The developer stated: “Xbox is a client of ours. There’s no way they’ll be ignoring those other mobile platforms.”

Develop has also spotted a Microsoft job listing looking for someone to help “bringing the latest and greatest gaming and entertainment experience to mobile platforms including Windows Phone, iOS and other mobile platforms.”

That seems pretty official to us, but what effect will this have on the Windows Phone brand?
