Xbox Live for your iPhone/iPod Touch!


So I guess Microsoft is playing nice with the iPhone now? First they release their very own app, and now they're letting access to their XBL architecture.

At least they're not stubborn about it.

Getting xbox live data isn't hard or specific to the iPhone. You can see more about it here: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/community/developer

In fact these types of apps have been around for a while now, even before the "new xbox experience" thing that they pushed. There was even some hoopla about it since some apps were charging for access the data (presumably against the community developer program EULA or something) and forced all the apps to go free

I thought that these didn't work on anything un-jailbroken until now? I remember hearing something specific about this certain app being for jailbroken iPhones/iPods only.
