    Even if 35,000 users sign an online petition over the course of a year, does anyone think this will matter? On Facebook Mia Kunis posted a picture that had the caption "Like this photo if you want a that 70s show reunion show". In a couple of hours, it had 1 million votes. The difference between 35,000 people and zero people is not that great.

    maybe xda developers have some other solution. If not, then I'd try to use ios port and sideload it to my phone, there are already tons of unofficial google map apps that use stuff required, so it wouldn't be a big deal.

    I need this!!! I am actually thinking of getting a low cost android just for this. Niantic's old project never made it to our phones either so I have doubts, but since it is backed by Nintendo maybe we stand a chance. Also, given that we have some apps that are basically ports from the iOS apps (instagram, facebook,messenger etc) you'd think it'd be easier. Damn google :(

    I'm not confident having seen these petitions come and go over the years (coughSnapchatcough), and the massive number of people already trying to play is kinda killing the game so I'm not sure they're keen on more players.

    So I'm making a bet with every single person in this thread who has written here before this post.

    If Pokemon GO is released for Windows 10 Mobile within the next 7 months*, even in unlisted Beta form, I will buy one lucky person in this thread an unlocked Microsoft Lumia 640, 640 XL, or 650** for them to play on.


    *defined by whether it is released and playable on my 640 anytime before February 12th 2017. Third-party solutions a la 6snap or Specter don't count.

    **I reserve the right to change up the selection lineup, but don't worry, I'll keep it in W10M-capable territory. It'll likely be used/refurbished, but I'll be vetting it.

    They probably need around 500,000 to a million votes to even bother

    I think Microsoft needs to step in. If they can't convince people/developers to bring applications to their platform, why will people keep on buying their phones?

    An application like this (in this case a game) is a good motivation why people will not choose WP in future, and more and more developers are abandoning WP. Microsoft could have stepped in when Nintendo announced that GO would not be coming to their platform, but now it is too late.

    And for the google maps support mentioned, applications like WhatsApp managed to get their app working on WP using the Microsoft software. I think the issue is nobody is seeing WP as a viable market, and for that Microsoft is to blame and they could probably have convinced them that they will make it worth their while.

    I think the biggest overarching issue is that Microsoft can't convince themselves to bring their own apps to their platform. (or even at the same time.)

    ltm, ltm

    Yeah, Unless the petition, or better for this scenario, a poll, is created by the developer, I don't really see the developer taking notice... Although, only a percentage of the people who would play the game on WP are signing, many probably don't even know the poll exists. So the potential for revenue on WP is greater then the number of signatures. And I'm not sure what the percentages are of people playing the game, that actually make in app purchases, so who knows how much they could estimate as actual income based on the numbers from the petition.
