AFAIK, not yet. Windows 8 will get its WiFi Direct Support first in Win8.1. My guess WP8 will get it in 8.1 update.

WiFi direct let devices communicate to each other via WiFi without a WiFi router or AP involved. It is widely used in various Android phones, especially Samsung phones for phone to phone quick file exchange.

Not fully true. Windows has had WiFi Direct since 7. However, it was a tool for developers to use, which nobody ever did that I know of. In 8.1, they make it system-wide to be able to connect devices.
