    How many of these titles will you take on the road with you?

    Earlier this month, Microsoft not only revealed that the "House Party" would once again be coming to XBLA, but they also put out details of the upcoming Must Have Games promotion for Windows Phone titles. We knew that https://www.trueachievements.com/TCs-Splinter-Cell-Conv....htm, https://www.trueachievements.com/Toy-Soldiers-Boot-Camp....htm, https://www.trueachievements.com/BulletAsylum-WP-xbox-3....htm, https://www.trueachievements.com/Chickens-Cant-Fly-WP-x....htm, and https://www.trueachievements.com/Need-for-Speed-Hot-Pur....htm would all be part of the promotion, but didn't know the exact release dates or prices. Now we have those details to share with you.

    February 1st, 2012: Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit - $4.99
    February 8th, 2012: BulletAsylum - $2.99
    February 15th, 2012: Chickens Can't Fly - $2.99
    February 22nd, 2012: Splinter Cell Conviction - $4.99
    February 29th, 2012: Toy Soldiers: Boot Camp - $2.99

    You mean they get that expensive in the UK? Got my LG Quantum at 95 usd and I hear the new Nokia Lumia 900 is being released at 99 usd. They get pretty affordable in the US, maybe eBay is more of a choice for you.

    Some of them are free on contract. Mine is £21.50 per month. Not quite as good as an iPhone but some games have achievements

    Just lock yourself in a 3-year contract and you'll get one for free.

    You said about this on the other thread about the must have games. You seem amazed that phones are expensive! All smartphones are expensive if you want to buy one outright, it's not just a Windows 7 thing. You either pay up and take the hit or you get a contract. I got mine for free on a contract. It means you pay more than the value of the phone overall once your contract is up but such is the way of the world unfortunately.
    Does this smell like chloroform to you?

    How are poor ports of existing games considered must have? My understanding was the the controls for two of those games were bad (NFS, Splinter Cell) because of the on screen controls. Unless they have come up with a magic solution they are probably no better than other smart phone games with them which are only marginally better than the Palm Pilot touch screen controls from back in the day.

    Don't waste your money get a proper phone. Why anyone would want a windows 7 phone when the iPhone even exists is beyond me. I wouldnt have one even if they were free, not even for achievements lol

    I said this after your last inaccurate comment regarding WP prices in the UK.

    I've got a Samsung Omnia 7 (WP) on 3 network, I'm 1 year into a 2 year contract. I only pay £15 a month.

    For my £15 I get unlimited texts, unlimited internet usage and 1000 minutes of calls to any network (inc unlimited calls to other 3 numbers)

    I could'nt get all that for £15 a month on PAYG.

    Do some research DWAGGIE
