I don't think it will ever reach the level of market share that iOS and Android hold but if they can hover somewhere between 10-20% they should be able to stay in a comfortable 3rd position and attract some of the bigger developers. Until then I will carry around my iPod Touch 5 and keep my Note 2 handy for when I need it.
    amen brotha, well on a positive note, xbox live arcade games is coming to windows phone platform, so thats very positive news.

    I would if I could. However Microsoft ignored WP's Store once again, by not making The Gunstringer available.

    Microsoft is doing all they can to create a incredible ecosystem for WP. If you think Windows Phone is the first one to go through this slow build up you're quite incorrect. I owned the second android ever released on AT&T the HTC Aria. When Android, like Windows Phone 8 is now, was just a growing operating system and just as Windows Phone will, Android gained the popular apps from iOS slowly, but surely and now look where Android is. All it takes is patience, and of course a bigger Marketshare. Remember that the Windows Phone's market share just reached a 2% market share. Android and iOS are way over at least 25% of the market.

    Ok... But then why Microsoft told us they'd bring really SOON these apps with WP8? (Temple Run/Shark Dash etc)

    If you read the comments from that video I posted, you'll notice that more than 35% of the comments are WP users asking for Temple Run comming to US.

    Honestly, the game is not that great. I have the original Temple Run and I prefer that over this. I won't even mention the abomination known as "Temple Run: Brave", that was such a disaster.

    I have both Temple Run and Temple Run 2 on my iPod Touch. Both are awesome! Temple Run 2 is much more challenging than the older version.

    p/s: I love WP and I love apps/games on iOS. iPod Touch is the only solution at the moment until WP's ecosystem mature enough and gets attention from all the big developers

    Get an ipod touch to play a couple of games? Are you serious lol. I own an 8x (a smartphone worth about 350) I'm going to expect it to be my driver for everything. I'm not fussed about temple run or anything like that but the ipod touch thing did make me laugh

    My $0.02 - we spend more, our phones are better, we have unique tastes, we're not looking to be drones, we made the decision to support an ecosystem because it is fundamentally more intuitive and it 'just works - SO SHOW US SOME GAMING LOVE AND RELEASE THIS BAD BOY FOR WP8!!! Come on daddy Balmer - get these guys on board!

    If the latest games are important to you, then you shouldn't be getting a Windows Phone, the ecosystem isn't mature or big enough yet to get priority from most developers. If getting the best phone, camera, OS are important then get WP and enjoy. I've shown my 920 to a lot of people and told them they should switch, but if they are massively into apps then they should wait til late Summer. I reckon that's when there will be enough growth that WP gets apps at the same time as the big 2, or not far behind. I imagine Nokia will have the thinner, lighter, better in some other ways sequel to the 920 out in September as well - for many people that will be the time to jump to WP.

    But for me I'm loving my 920, many things I can see where they can make improvements, but coming from Android it's a pure pleasure to use and the odd missing app I can last without (or use my HP Touchpad I repurposed with Android).

    Just a thought, maybe the thought is among developers of games is that people are going to expect them to be ported over and done as xbl games. While the achievements are nice, maybe if we start asking the devs to release them as indie/3rd party games it would help speed porting?

    I want the Xbox live achievements. They're a big deal for me. Fortunately Xbox Music is still tying me to Windows Phone.

    Honestly speaking everyone should like the top comment on the YouTube video. Having a few hundred will def get the devs attention. Having 1000+ and the dev would have to be dumb not to do something. Everyone from Microsoft keep telling us to contact the dev and this is a great opportunity.

    Go ahead and send them an email. They'll reply saying: Bla Bla Bla ... We strive to release our app on more markets ... bla bla bla...

    It is to me as well, but I'm thinking since we hear about what a mess that submission process is suggest this to help.

    I was considering a Windows Phone for my next upgrade and still think it is the best OS but the lack of new quality titles is concerning with no definite time table when we will get them. This platform seems to be perpetually stuck in "Another 2 years mode". How difficult is it to leverage the Xbox brand and get developers to port their games over? Microsoft has tons of cash on hand, create a billion dollar pot and get the developers excited about the platform. Also app pricing needs to get in line with the competitors, apps are simply too high.

    +9000. The prices are not that high (IMO), but some are. One thing I DISLIKE HATE* about our games is that they are barely getting updated.

    The Xbox live games, yes, because they have to recertify the game.
