Rumor: Electronic Arts To Bring Top Tier Xbox Live Games To Windows Phone 8 At Launch

October 7, 2012 No Comments

Now boys and girls, lets keep in mind that this is only a rumor from a source with no reputation, but with plausible notions and sources that make this one more than reliable in my opinion. EA,  just one of the many gaming partners that we have all grown to love announced back in August that it was looking to further its alliance with Microsoft. We’ve just got word that in fact not only were they not just talking the talk, but indeed they are strongly committed to bring gamers the games longed for only imaginable once upon a time on the Xbox. Below is a reported list of the games we can look to see ported and Xbox Live enabled on our upcoming Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 devices, take a look!:

Real Racing 3

A game only announced for iOS  and slated for this year is rumored as coming to our beloved (W8/WP8) devices in all its glory! Check out info and alpha video from the iOS version below:

The Real Racing series was developed by Firemint in 2009 and the recently announced Firemonkeys team is excited to unveil a few features from the newest iteration of the series. Featuring all-new licensed tracks and a robust lineup of licensed cars from all-new manufacturers, Real Racing 3 is set to deliver a rich, next-gen racing experience with the most beautiful and authentic circuit racing available on mobile devices.

Mass Effect: Infiltrator

A game that only makes sense as an Xbox Live title will hopefully finally make its way over to its rightful home! Check out video and info from the Android version below:


Can you fight your way off the hostile Cerberus base and deliver their secret research to the Alliance? Featuring groundbreaking graphics and intensified audio, enjoy a console-like experience that marks the next leap in Android gameplay. Harness the fury of high-tech armor and weapons. Unleash biotic powers, stealth cloak abilities and devastating melee attacks.


Again, What seems to be a clear trend of top tier games that once only belonged on the Xbox will (rumored )show up in some fashion! iOS  details below:

FIFA 13 is more realistic than ever – with all the authenticity and innovation you’ve come to expect from the FIFA franchise. Matches come to life with groundbreaking graphics and the most responsive controls ever delivered on iOS.


Dragon’s Lair 2: Time Warp

Dragon Lair if you don’t know, was announced as a launch title for the Windows 8. Hopefully we can rest assure that the sequel will follow suit! iOS info and video below:

Only you, Dirk the Daring, can save Princess Daphne from the clutches of the Evil Wizard Mordroc in this fully animated arcade classic from the legendary animator and director Don Bluth.

Dead Space and previously announced For Windows Phone 8/Possibly Windows Phone 7

Below is video for the Android version of the award winning Dead Space game once reported as coming finally to the Windows Phone 7 as part of an exclusive Nokia Collection. The Collection is reported as a timed exclusive to Nokia and so far has only published Mirrors Edge as its first.

And that is only the beginning. Remember what was promised by Nokia? The list will come true and soon. Let me refresh your memories below!:

  • Real Racing 2
  • Tiger PGA Tour Woord
  • The Sims Medieval
  • Monopoly Here & Now: The World Edition
  • Spy Mouse

So there you have it. We hope to do a follow up by contacting EA directly in the future to see if this all pans out.It is safe to say one thing concerning the rumor. EA is committed to our platform and has proven it time and time again, if only by providing us games from there subsidiary Chillingo  ,like the recently released Extraction: Project Outbreak,Roll in the Hole,Contre Jour and Feed Me Oil just to name a few. We will keep you posted on this and further claims by the inside tipster. For our sake lets hope he/shes right!….MBGW
