if these games are on Windows 8 then it is bound to be going to Windows Phone 8. If this game is ported to Windows 8 then porting to Windows Phone 8 should be quite an easy job

Well.... nice start. The pure volume of this first release list show's that in 2 more months, this will be a fun, fun list.
Liking WP 8's chances more and more all the time. Wouldn't it be fun if BB10 was also a hit, and there were 4 great choices that survived and thrived? Even if Android remained #1 and iOS remained #2, a 40%-25%-15%-15% split with 5% left for other would really provide for great options in the years to come!!
Oh, the OS trash talking we would have on PA.........

Who is thumbin you all down???Oh well another android troll who can't handle when something pozitive is happening to another platform.I'm an iphone and ipad user and for one i'm happy to see a third platform starting so good.The more competition we have the better for us consumers;)

It is not me but I am thumbing YOU down for "Android Troll" comment.
How do you know it is android fan and not iFan ?
I am Android fan but considering to switch to WP8 when I see how great it is going to be. And I believe some other android fans as well, because we use brain. Not like iFans who stays always with Apple no matter what.

I don't want to generalize here, but in my experience, Android fans tend to be much more volatile than Apple fans, which lends credence to the theory that it is an Android fan that is responsible for the thumbs down. Also, as Android has a higher market share, it is statistically more likely that it is an Android fan.

I get your point Penny but still, you can't accuse someone like that if you have no clue who it really was.
30. remixfa posted on 31 Aug 2012, 16:24 4 0
who here is more volatile than Taco, Gallito, or Ardent? lol
There are definitely more active android members, which is normal considering how much more popular Android is, but on a general level the iNutters keep the crazy notch set a few degrees higher than everyone elses.
I'm keeping an eye on W8. More for a tablet than a phone right now, but I always got my eyes on new tech. :)

Gotta agree with remixfa. The iFans are usually the unstable ones.
On comments I dont really have an opinion about....or if I agree and disagree at the same time...I dont give a red or green thumb. Even if I respond to it.
Put it like this...a red thumb from me.....it was deserved...lol.

yes most android guys want to impose their android to all others
41. 1701nino posted on 01 Sep 2012, 08:28 0 1
Well Einstein,because android trolls are deeply jelaous of other platforms and in most cases they can't handle some good news about another platform(seen it many times).every news about apple is full of android trolls who trash apple and apple users and now its happening with win phone.
42. Peter27 posted on 01 Sep 2012, 10:12 0 0
So not true. Android fans are the only ones I hear that would not mind to change the platform.
All I hear from iFans is: I will be dissapointed, but I will buy iPhone 5 anyway.

Take this with a grain of salt. MS released a similar list for WP7, and less than half the list materialized. Sonic CD still hasn't reached WP7 either.
29. HäckeMáte posted on 31 Aug 2012, 15:35 1 2
all I got to say is: there are atleast 2 trolls that really hate xbox live and express themselves in a cascade of thumbsdown.
Dont worry they dont seem to be interested in making it past page 1 of the comments. ATM page 2 and up are safe.

You know, some fools have nothing to contribute other than to thumb down others' comments.
For example, some fool will thumb down this comment.
Come on, fool, do your thing...
