The idea of integrating Xbox LIVE into Windows Mobile has been bouncing around since Steve Ballmer’s CES 2009 keynote where he and his associates showed off Windows 7, Windows Mobile and the new Xbox Experience and promised that “Microsoft will connect your entertainment experience.” That pie in the sky dream was not realized in 2009 but a job posting at Microsoft suggests that the idea has not been forgotten. Recently, Microsoft is seeking a Principle Program Manager to “bring Xbox LIVE enabled games to Windows Mobile” and is someone who “will focus specifically on what makes gaming experiences “LIVE Enabled” through aspects such as avatar integration, social interactions, and multi-screen experiences”. Xbox LIVE integration may be the ace up Microsoft’s sleeve and may help bolster Windows Mobile’s position as a consumer oriented device.
