    • Nokia has the Sims: Medieval release this week too. Games are actually coming pretty quickly. In six months time there should be no reason why developers aren’t developing for both Windows 8 & WP8.

      Hopefully Microsoft provides updated APIs at BUILD that bring the two platforms closer together.

    • This is weird. I don’t see a developer like Square Enix taking the time to develop just for WP7.5 devices. I’ll need to follow up on this. Good catch.
