    So,there is no way to install a game like Asphalt 8 or HALO without Xbox?
    Can you sideload apps and games on WP8 like on Android?

    I don't own any Xbox console, but I can play Halo, Asphalt 8, etc. Xbox is MS's entertainment brand, no need to go buy an Xbox just to enjoy mobile games.

    You can't easily sideload stuff.

    do you mean XBOX console games or games labeled XBOX in the windows phone store?

    if it's in the windows phone store, then yes, you can play them. games like asphalt 8 and halo spartan assault.

    Windows phone has games which are classified as "Xbox games" because they reward you with gamer points, etc. If you want to download one of these games which is listed on the windows phone store there is no need for the physical Xbox console, they are independent from it.

    To play actual console games with discs, etc you do require to have the physical gaming console.

    Cheers!

    Temple Run I believe yes.
    2? Don't know.
    Six Guns? I believe yes. I could be wrong, but I think I'm not.

    maybe some sandbox games or 3d fps?
    You could probably install GTA San Andreas on it, but I don't know how well it'll run. Probably can change the graphics settings though.

    I would believe that you could get AC.
    Also, check out gameplay videos from the Lumia 520 (521), 720 since those phones are just about identical under-the-hood to the 620.
    Also check out the 625, but its slightly faster than those above.
