At first they were boasting that adult rated games wont be allowed in Windows store, now they do... They never keep their word... Typical windows....

I am really impressed with the Windows phone so far and the addition of these games are making a compelling arguement for a WP handset to be my secondary phone

now we're talking! after I see how some of these titles perform on Lumia 920 - I will decide whether I'll buy one or not

Android didn't come up with 500,000 apps from the first go...it took them time!! Windows will follow the same trend... But i can see that it's getting better and better!! :)

"Temple Run, and many other Unity Engine-based games are coming to Windows Phone 8 (previous WP versions didn't support Unity)." From yesterday's WP8 launch event

So, twelve games for next year? They will release 35 this year only on android and IOS . Still, this is good enough of a start for WP

So problem is next year blackberry and windows phone will run similarly , so it will be a 2 horse race.to the number 3 position , and by the way , these 12 games will look old when new titles hit android and ios next year

what about the original Nova and Nova 2. that'd be like watching the dark night rises before watching the first two sequels

Yay??? I don't play a single Gameloft game. Back when they had the 99cent sale, I bought like 10 games. They were huge in size and ate up my iPad's storage. I played each for five minutes, saw how generic and ugly the games were, and removed each one. No where near console quality, of any generation. You may have the horsepower, but you don't have the production values nor the time. More like amateur projects or forced labor products. And what do you expect for 99cents? The good games cost money, and when the prices go up, so do the pirates, so no developer even bothers with any GOOD games on mobile. Stick to the puzzle and 99cent stuff, the 30second bite-sized games that are touch-friendly.

BS This makes me doubt you ever played NOVA 3 and Modern Combat 3 .. Those shooters are full blown games that can actually compare to COD and HALO from 7-5 years ago
