    I am EE and since the release last night, not only is the game not in the store but the link from WPC shows me that the app isn't available for my device. Has anyone on EE got the game. I have restarted on numerous occasions and tried to access the store with n without WiFi. I know it takes some time to propagate each store but seriously.

    PS, i am more annoyed as i don't have it and wanted stick it to my iphone/android using friends that are huge fans of Halo ;)

    What phone have you got? I had the same issue last night on my 8x on O2. It wasn't showing in the store so used the link and couldn't download it - checked it this morning and its front and centre in the store and I can now download it.

    Maybe just need to give it a bit more time.

    Patience goes out the window when it comes to a Halo release.

    Halo: Spartan Assault is featured app on my Orange (EE) phone this morning. Its actually listed as an Orange game (see Halo: Spartan Assault UK Exclusivity - Imgur), it still doesn't appear on my Vodafone device. Could this be a exclusive to EE/Orange/T-Mobile or are the other operators stores just slow to update?

    Vodafone Lumia 925 and its not appearing either!

    There's been no talk on EE exclusivity and the chappy above got it on O2 too so maybe some carriers are slower to update the store than others?

    Carriers don't update the store. On my 8x it shows when i insert an orange sim but not when i insert a o2 sim. Appears a EE exclusive in uk.

    Ahmmm, ignore my ignorance but why do the providers have control over the store content? Also i got my device from phones4u and though in EE should technically be unlocked but i could be wrong.

    Also, just checked again and its still not available. I wasn't impatient before as some above have mentioned(hell i owned a pre, if you know about apps or updates for a pre, then you will know about having patience) but now my patience is starting to weaver.

    On my phone it shows an Orange logo, that only seems to appear on Orange exclusive apps like their map app. Apparently people on O2 have it though, so I don't know, I just thought I'd share.



    Apologies for the massive image, I don't know how to scale it down when I'm just linking to it.

    Checked my o2 sim card and it is there like orange. Perhaps exclusive to ee and o2. Orange listing certainly implies its exclusive but not sure why it would be exclusive to two networks?!

    It is not appearing in the Marketplace on my Vodafone Nokia 925.

    Does anyone know if the Windows 8 version supports the wired Xbox controller? I might get it for my PC instead as my phone gets rather hot when playing games or surfing the web.

    I believe in the original interview the guys here at WPC had with 343 they stated xbox controller support would arrive shortly after release in an update. If I had more time I would link the article.

    Edit: Found more time - and the paragraph from the pertaining article

    What about Xbox 360 controller support? After all, Spartan Assault’s controls all involve virtual sticks and buttons – no tapping enemies directly or anything like that. The game would map perfectly to a control pad. And it WILL do so, but oddly not at launch. Instead, Xbox 360 controller support will come in a future update. If I had to guess, I’d say the decision to include it came after the launch feature set had been locked in. Silly not to plan for it from the start, but at least it’s coming.
