Microsoft will sell adult-rated games in the Windows 8 store, after all
At first, it seemed like due to the differences in the rating systems in the US and Europe, some titles, which have been given the green light in the US, have been denied in the EU. BUT, with this new change in Microsoft's Windows App guidelines, programs with ratings over PEGI16 and ESRB MATURE will, in fact, be allowed to corrupt the otherwise happy and cheerful atmosphere of the marketplace. This won't happen until December, though. Until then, those titles will still be nonexistent in the store.
Some of the games that fall into this category that Windows 8 tablet users will be able to play include Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed and Skyrim - titles which every normal game store wants to have in its catalog.

Microsoft is looking more and more promising after all. Why should everyone have to suffer because parents can't control their out-of-control insolent kids!?

Of course, the surface Pro comes with an Intel Ivy bridge i5 in it, so you won't have any issues running those types of games..unless you're planning to play these games maxed out !

So excited they are putting Skyrim on there! Have been a fan since Morrowind, and haven't looked back. I hope that next year The Elder Scrolls Online will be integrated into this as well!
