Zynga to Xbox 360?

Brace yourselves people, Zynga games may be headed to Xbox 360.

In a recent interview, Zynga CEO Mark Pincus rather casually mentioned Microsoft?s console while discussing the synchronization of Zynga games across multiple devices. Here’s the quote:

?Right now we are building back-end technology, so that your game state can be saved and served up in difference screens and devices,? Pincus said. ?The interaction cues will take from the different devices. In other words, you can play a game on a computer and call it up on Xbox and you resume from the point you left off, except the game play will now be customized for the Xbox controller.?

Did he just give something away? Zynga games has appeared on wireless devices and PCs, but an appearance on Xbox would mark the first time the company expanded to consoles. This is also fitting with Microsoft?s strategy of new content collaborations announced during CES. Zynga itself has been exploring new partnerships as it expands the new Zynga platform.

Zynga and Microsoft haven?t confirmed anything yet, but it?s certainly an interesting possibility.
