Briefly: Gears of War to Microsoft, Nintendo demos on iOS and Android
<a href="http://macnn.com/rd/303108==http://epicgames.com" rel='nofollow'>Epic Games</a> has revealed that the sci-fi first person shooter <em>Gears of War</em> has been acquired by <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/303109==http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/productionstudios/" rel='nofollow'>Microsoft</a> studios. The deal gives Microsoft the rights to all the existing titles, as well as future games and other assets -- including merchandising associated with the property. Microsoft studio Black Tusk, helmed by ex-Epic Games director Rod Fergusson, will assume development of the franchise, with an anticipated announcement about the franchise future later this year. No terms of the deal have been made public.<br />

<strong>Nintendo to demo its games on iOS, Android?</strong><br />
<br />
The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/303107==http://www.serkantoto.com/2014/01/28/nintendo-smartphones/" rel='nofollow'><em>Nikkei Business Daily</em></a> is reporting that -- in the shadow of the Nintendo Wii-U's failure in the marketplace and consequent poor financial results for the company -- the venerable game manufacturer is planning a series of free mini-games for mobile devices. The games will reputedly sell users on the Nintendo gaming experience, and act as a sales channel for full versions of Nintendo titles on its console and handheld hardware. More details of the nascent program are expected during an investor briefing on Thursday.
