So is this really why there are no good games for windows phone? I'm a big boy, I can decide for myself what is, and isn't, appropriate. Stupid Microsoft.

There are Mature rated games on WP7 and WP8. The reason behind there not being alot of good games on these platforms is because of the developers, not Microsoft.

Didn't I see an article about this a month ago on another site? I'm assuming you are referring to the Surface Pro, but there are (and have been) a few Windows 8 tablets already out there.
