I would have no issue getting a Windows phone, but the developer support just isn't there yet.

 

I like to mobile game. It's actually my favorite form of gaming at the moment.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Brave Frontier (iOS) & Dragon Quest I (iOS)     

    

Got a retro room? Post it here!

I'm gonna get a 7inch Windows RT tablet for gaming when they release one. The main attraction to gaming on Windows phones and tablets is that you can earn Xbox gamerscore...which is perfect for me, cos I'm in a long-term gamerscore war with my friend with very high stakes!



When is Windows going to start affecting Android again?

Get iPhones then! They have Game Center which has achievements and points.

I currently have over 16K.

 

Time to create a new war with your friend.

During the dumb phone era, windows phone was the biggest OS around.  Now, google and Apple are stealing microsofts lunch.
