Halo: Spartan Assault having problems getting downloaded on Windows Phone models out of the U.S.
Halo: Spartan Assault finally hit the Windows Phone Store on late Thursday. For 30 days inside the U.S., it is an exclusive for Verizon branded Windows Phone models. Outside the U.S., there might not be a carrier exclusive but some Windows Phone owners are apparently having a problem downloading the game because of a problem. A tweet from Microsoft's Joe Belfiore let those who could not successfully download the game, know that Microsoft is aware of the situation and is working on correcting the problem.

Halo: Spartan Assault costs the equivalent of $6.99 and requires that you own a high-memory Windows Phone model. After the initial $6.99, you have the option of purchasing temporary weapon upgrades. For these, you need to buy additional credits which are available for as low as $2.99 (500 credits) to as high as $39.99 (10,000 credits). But it is all for naught if you can't download the game. Hopefully, Microsoft makes the necessary adjustments soon. Belfiore's tweet suggests that it won't be longer than a day or so.

If you look on the windows phone store, its full of people giving apps one star reviews, saying how it keeps crashing. Also Linus from linustechtips commented on how his HTC 8x kept hanging.

I want this game badly.. Much needed injection after all the shallow crap on all app stores. This is a phone pusher for any real gamer ( no I don't consider phone game players real gamers for the most part)

Papss, you Microsoft fanboy..tried N.O.V.A.3 ?

It IS a Halo on phones.. and with a better story, characters and level design at that.
Just play the game before you start spewing anything.
I think it is available on windows phone market

I have played nova 3 but it still isn't a halo story, music, characters have no equal so far.

why stop at having option of purchasing temporary weapon upgrades..e.g BFG2000

they should also sell bots that play the game for you. LOL!

I bought xbox 360 for halo 3 but was disappointed with it. Its the most generic fps and very short i complete it in 3 hrs. I don't understand why its so overrated.

yeah I pay $60 buck for a super short 3 hours of gaming for halo 3.

With bishock 1 and 2, I get more. Truly original story with immersive game play and a cool 20 hours of gaming each.

I do enjoy halo 1 abit than its started to get shorter with halo 2 but halo 3 is simply sub standard.

I play into halo marketing crap once. I don't even think of getting halo anything now.

No platform is perfect, but compared to the problems some "other" platforms have WP should be considered perfect... And I know because I've used WP extensively, and it rarely, I mean rarely, has any performace related issues... But, problems with WP are never huge, and they get ironed out quickly,, usually... WP is a great platform regardless of what those, who deep down inside fear it's success,, say.
