Microsoft teases 5
Microsoft’s Windows Phone already has a solid collection of over 55,000 apps, but users are always looking for new and better apps, and this February Redmond promises five “must have” titles will be coming to its mobile platform.

The new additions to WP’s Xbox LIVE collection include shooters, action and driving games for all tastes. Along with those new releases, Nokia has also said it’s collaborating with EA to bring 20 of its titles to the platform, so if you have a Nokia Windows Phone you’d get even more gaming action.

Here’s the five titles you’d get in February that should catch your attention:

- Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit by EA - NFS with 20 new super cars like the Pagani Zonda Cinque and Lamborghini Reventon. With 24 day and night tracks, and 48 career events this should keep you entertained for a while.

- Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction by Gameloft - the shooter is well known outside Windows Phone and offers dynamic action with guns raging from a handgun to bazooka.

The game supports Live Tiles for the full WP experience.

How do you like the game selection on Windows Phone? Do you find some particular Android or iOS titles missing?

Well, Wheres Shadowgun? That game would be so fun to play in the HTC Titan/ Nokia Lumia 900. Either way I still love Windows Phone 7.

Because Phonearena is one of the best sites around for phones. Who cares if they're a few hours later than other sites? I'll sacrifice it for quality.

Uh, I guess this is a start, but hardly worth getting excited about. If anything, it seems show how far *behind* MS is compared to Android/iOS in the games department.

However, it does show that Microsoft is committed to gaming on their phones. It also shows that the Windows Phones can more than support awesome games without needing dual or quad core chips.

But yes, it's the start of an amazing experience.

"Do you find some particular Android or iOS titles missing?"

Who gives a crap what iOS or Android has?? I thought I'd hardly ever play games on my phone, but wp7 has a lot of fun addicting ones.

Not having been on an iphone/android before, I have no clue whether or not they originated there, nor to I care. Wp7 is not defined by android or iOS, it's better than that.

Want to see a badass game? Check out the indie game ARMED!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdEr0hMOwTA

Plays flawlessly on my single core titan w/half a gig of ram.

only people from a few countries can buy games or app from Microsoft Marketplace
just buy Android phones, Microsoft is too restrictive
