BREW 2006: Microsoft's "Live Anywhere" Goes Mobile
QUALCOMM to support Microsoft's vision on the BREW platform
QUALCOMM Incorporated announced today that it would extend Microsoft's "Live Anywhere" vision onto the BREW platform. This collaboration supports Microsoft's recent commitment to provide a unified gaming universe spanning multiple devices and platforms, currently including MSN Games, Xbox Live -- including Xbox Live Arcade, MSN Messenger, Windows Operating System and soon mobile devices.
Microsoft and QUALCOMM will provide a glimpse into the integrated, high-quality, mobile gaming experience to come on the BREW platform today at the BREW 2006 Conference in San Diego.
Announced by Bill Gates at the recent Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Microsoft's "Live Anywhere" vision puts consumers at the center of an always-on world where games, digital entertainment and friends are always accessible through a consistent gaming interface -- regardless if the game is being played on the Xbox 360, on MSN Games, on a BREW handset or on other platforms and devices.
Mobile devices will play a fundamental role in Microsoft's vision, not only as a gaming device, but also as a platform for its gaming communities to communicate and interact.
