    No way to get the games without a Windows Phone ? (I will have one for Christmas).

    I presume if you go to the store (check the game page for a direct link to the game) then you can purchase the game and it will download once you sign your account in to the phone.

I literally can only download games thru my phone or pc with the phone hooked up to it. If you don't have a wp i don't think you can download anything for it that i know of

    Once you've done that you can queue games up on the site or use your phone.

    Every day is a school day. I don't understand why you can get X1 content via the website but not WP, even if you don't own an X1. Is is it something to do with registering a device for the WP whereas on a X1 you just sign in?

    Simple, there is only one Xbox One model/specs out there, but hundreds of different phone models/specs out there. The safe assumption if you are buying Xbox One content online is that you have an Xbox One (can't imagine other than GwG why else you would, unless throwing away money is your thing) and thus anything sold will work with your system, but such an assumption about your phone can't be made due to the plethora of different models, some of which may or may not be able to run certain applications/games. Registering first stops a whole lot of "well I bought this for my device but it can't even run it!" style complaints, and is better for the ultimate consumer experience (since an app not being compatible with your phone is automated response, and you don't have to going through a list looking for your phone model for instance).

    Hopefully the w8 versions go free as well, my phone isn't good enough for them but my new tablet will be.
