    Angry Birds: Star Wars at the same day as IOS, at just 99cents?

    Isn't this kind of huge? I mean Holy ****, we might actually start to caught up in apps and games. So excited for the platform.

    I'll get it for sure. Glad to see a dev not leaving us old ancient WP7 users in the dust.

    So, I see ABSW is in the Windows 8 store for 4.99. And WP it's 99 cents?

    Why is this not linking your purchases together? You purchase the app/game once with your MS account and you can use it on your phone/tablet/pc?

    MS took the route of buy it and use it on your tablet and pc. Phone is separate. Apple took the route of buy for your iphone, buy HD for you ipad and buy again for the pc (3 versions, 3 purchases or run the iphone version on the ipad with borders). Android is more along the line of buy for your phone and use on your tablet also and well the chromebook doesn't have that many apps yet so we will see about it.

    So really the you have to buy it twice for MS is better than buying it 3 times for apple products and is similar to Google products only a different grouping since MS has a different view of the tablet market than the others.

    Thank you for that explanation. I did not know that and must have missed the memo on that. Just one more question which may be a bit off topic but still about games.

    What about the Xbox? Will that fall under the PC/tablet scope? I ask because for example I purchased plants vs zombies on my Xbox with points years ago, and then purchased on my wp a year ago. Would it be safe to assume when it launches on windows 8 store I would not have to purchase again?

    I am a little worried for the fact that I purchased the Prometheus movie on my Xbox. I pulled up the movie on Xbox video in my windows 8 app and it told me I had to purchase for 16.99. I already spent 1200 Ms points on it a month ago. I know how the phone works when you re install a purchased app. You tap buy and it says you already purchased this and to download again. I didn't want to test that with 17 bucks on the line.

    It's that native code. Now the likes of Rovio don't need to make the app from the scratch.
    I'm not sure how many people actually got how important that change was.

    And can we all agree the game is amazing? I was extremely tired of the Angry Bird franchise but ABSW has not only brought an amazing breath of fresh air to the game it has brought some amazingly fun gameplay mechanics as well.

    Deflecting blaster bolts with your lightsaber or Force powers are great and the style just hits the spot. The game is easily a homerun in my book.

    Is Path of the Jedi on the WP version? I could find a comparison of the WP, Windows, iOS and Android versions to see what differences exist. It does seem that some content is available on select platforms.

    I really liked this game, Im already trying for the 3 starts in each level but there is something that keeps bothering me.
    I linked my xbox live account with my WP8, and everytime I start playing AB:SW I get a pop-up saying it couldnt connect to my xbox account to try later, already tried wifi, 3g, and in different places.
    Is this normal? what does it do once it connects?

    Edit: it finally worked after the update, I dont know what happened, but I got all my achievements.

    So where are the new levels that iOS and Android got this past weekend? Dont get me wrong, having the game on WP is fantastic but it will stink if it just sits there like the original one without ever getting updated. I want to play the Hoth levels!

    Rovio mentioned it was coming to Windows Phone but we aren't sure if there's something slowing it down as far as development or if it's the Store's certification process. We've seen some games take weeks to go live after the release announcement.

    But I do agree, it would stink if the Hoth levels didn't make it to Windows Phone.
