XBLA titles to be hosted on iOS and Android?

Playing your XBLA games on your phone may be a reality soon...

Ever wanted to play Super Meat Boy or Bastion on the bus but are thwarted by the fact you have an iPhone?

Well, it appears that work may be under way for iOS and Android-powered devices to host Xbox Live Arcade games.

An anonymous development source said bluntly: "Xbox is a client of ours. There's no way they'll be ignoring those other mobile platforms."

With Sony already moving into the Android market with the PlayStation Suite it would be foolish for Microsoft not to explore bringing their extensive XBLA catalogue to mobile devices outside of Windows Phone 7.

Thanks Business Insider.
