Oh hey look, Microsoft and Frontier Developments’ Kinect title Kinectimals has invaded Apple’s iOS devices. This comes after Microsoft recently released an official Xbox 360 App (My Xbox Live) and Halo: Waypoint on iTunes. Is Microsoft warming to their biggest rival’s platforms? Is it a case of “if you can’t beat ‘em, utilise their hardware”? Or has Microsoft realised that there are just way too many iOS devices out there to continue ignoring them? Whatever the case may be, hopefully this is the start of many more iOS Xbox titles to come.
Kinectimals for iOS is a port of the version that’s already available on Windows Phone 7. You’ll get to muck about with cutesy little cubs on an island, and if you’re already into the whole Kinectimals thing on Xbox 360, then purchasing this App ($2.99) will net you five exclusive new cubs for your console version.
Alright, let’s be honest here: we really don’t give a crap about Kinectimals. What we’re really interested in is Microsoft’s seemingly chummy approach to Apple’s portable devices. Hopefully we’ll get more Windows Phone 7 titles making the platform hop. What would be the absolute cherry on top would be earning Achievements for your Xbox 360 Gamerscore on your iPhone or iPad, but we’re totally not holding our breath on that one.
