Job Posting Hints at Xbox Live Games Coming to iOS Devices

A curious Microsoft job posting has been spotted that clearly hints at plans to begin developing an Xbox Live experience for iOS devices, as well as other mobile platforms.  This could potentially mean that the XBL functionality found on the Windows Phone 7 may eventually makes it way to other mobile platforms, which would make this gamer very happy.  I’ll take any chance I can get to score more G, so if I can’t start doing so on my iPhone 4S and iPad 2, I’ll be a happier than a pig in sh*t.  The job bid doesn’t flat out say that MS is developing XBL games for iOS, but the notion is strongly suggested.  Check it out below and decide for yourself, but I’m leaning towards one day being able to play XBL games on my iOS devices!  You’ve been liking MS line of thinking lately…
