    This isn’t really news, nor is this surprising, Sony failed at it, Nintendo has been king since the 1980’s in the handheld region, and Windows Phone fills this in for Microsoft, Xbox LIVE for Windows Phone should simply improve, and with the coming universal apps, I see this as something that is completed. :-)

    I would settle for a Lumia device without a cell radio. Use the Windows store, and I have one app/game that is on my media player, cell, tablet, desktop, and Xbox.

      Lumina still being made? That is good news if true, i was under the impression it died when Nokia died.

    I think a better question to ask would be: When can we expect to see a Kinect extension cable for the Xbox One?
