OMG, BFFs 4 lyfe: Windows Mobile and Xbox LIVE?

Not content with simply being able to access Xbox LIVE from your Xbox 360 and your PC? A recent job listing is hinting that Microsoft may be looking to fill the gap between Xbox LIVE and Windows Mobile devices.

Microsoft is currently looking for a Principal Program Manager to bring "Xbox LIVE enabled games to Windows Mobile." This would also included "avatar integration, social interaction, and multi-screen experiences."

There are already plenty of ways to view your Xbox LIVE friends list on your mobile phones, with various programs already available for iPhone and even Android-based mobile devices. But this sounds like it's taking it a step further, particularly with the mention of "multi-screen experiences."

Linking your Xbox 360 to your mobile device could allow for some interesting experiences, but let's not forget, it's been done before. Nintendo did a similar thing with the Game Boy Advance and the GameCube via a link cable, giving birth to some pretty killer games like the excellent Pac-Man Vs.

We'll just have to wait and see if Microsoft has something a bit more ambitious up its sleeve... and how many people who own 360s also own Windows Mobile devices in 2010.

There's a Hummer H1 in Forza Horizon 2, and these 99 other cars

I hate Hummers so much. Only in America would a car that stupid get that popular. Of course, Forza Horizon 2 has the H1, the actual Humvee-looking one that isn't any less stupid for civilian driving, but at least it doesn't look like a gangly, overgrown Power Wheels like the popular H2 you still see out and about sometimes. The first 100 cars are listed here.more

Microsoft might be delusional about Xbox One

Microsoft doesn't necessarily claim Xbox One has the best exclusives, but a recently deleted tweet from the company did seem to suggest as much. Apparently "everyone else says so" -- which is, um, an interesting statemen...more
