According to Nikkei, Microsoft will make Xbox and computer games available to the iPhone and Android phones through a licensing deal.

SAN FRANCISCO Ś Microsoft Corp. will offer its console and computer games for Apple Inc.'s iPhone and other smartphone platforms this fiscal year, through a tie-up with Japanese smartphone game maker Klab Inc., the Nikkei said on Monday.

Yeah but honestly what type of games. Crappy animation or 2D/3D games are already available on those through 3rd party websites. When they can let me play Battlefield 2142, or Rome Total War then I'll listen.
