    I'm disappointed Grand theft auto san Andreas didn't come to windows rt version. It came to all other platforms but windows rt. Even came to kindle fire.

    If it came to windows phone, that means it will come to windows rt, they share the same core.

    You freaked me out for a sec, because I want to buy this device, and thought something was wrong with it. Haha

    User base for Windows 8.1 is expanding. Games will come to the platform. Do you really think Rockstar is going to miss out on selling to tablet and desktop users? If they do someone needs to be fired.

    And that is what's wrong with so many people in the WP/W8 'community' now.

    No, I'm not disappointed with the surface in general. I was just counting on that game to be released. I think it would of been a real hit in the store.

    You should of been here before Instagram decided to grace us with their presence, you'd think the world was coming to an end. And oh yeah, Microsoft was going to fold because the phone / RT platform didn't have the apps.

    Hey, "I feel your pain!".

    Get used to it. I have a Surface Pro and a Surface 2, and a Lumia 920. But, these platforms simply will NEVER have all of the apps of iOS or Android. The apps/games will either not come or come later. I still like the platform, but I've been considering supplementing with an iPad Mini, just to have access to some of the games/apps that simply will never make it to W8/WP8...

    I've found I don't need all the apps with the Surface 2, it has a real browser just go to the site, it has office, all the app functions I needed with my Android phone I don't need with the Surface. If you want something to be a toy and play games join the apple sheep.

    It isn't a direct port from WP to Windows, and vice versa. It requires a bit of work. I'm sure the game will come to windows when WP gets it.

    ehm, I was here since WP7. had a Lumia 800, most reliable device I've ever used, yet again i only used Nokia phones, and a couple of stupid - Motorola (the one that had itunes, rokr i guess) and LG (the cookie - was fun) - choices.

    I'm willing to bet that this is because they're going to release either a full on PC version of the game or they'll just go ahead and skip PC.

    Wishing neither of the two, of course.

    one could argue that most android fans couldn't care about here since they use android and thus google maps.

    SOngarc...ehh. I am not sure if that is a worthy comparison to make. Given that we still lack way more popular games.

    And why would they need 6tag when they've always had instagram? We needed 6tag due to lack of instagram.

    I can honestly say I think Songarc is the best rhythm game, HERE maps is superior in my experience (at least in US), and 6tag surpasses instagrams native capabilities. Even MS Officials (see twitter pics) use 6tag more than Instagram client.

    People have different reasons to own items. For me its consumption before production. I'm with the OP on this, they need to release a RT app for people like me who bought a tablet for media consumption. I only came to the windows ecosystem for games (and Xbox branded games), speedy and smooth OS, and metro interface. I dont care for Office and MS business offerings. I'm a die hard consumer of MS products, but I'm also NOT a business owner.

    As Microsoft say in their most recent commercial, its for WORK and PLAY. Microsoft dont sell themselves just for business users, I have a steady career and I can tell you I never needed office for anything other than a resume, but I use my WP8, PC, and Surface RT all for consuming movies and games, and thats it. I couldn't be happier with the speed of the OS and the metro interface and have NEVER considered an iProduct or Android ever since I first used WP. Your argument is invalid, as MS has been saying.Its for WORK and PLAY. (Commercial is on right now to, and it makes you sound pretty ironic.)

    Because you knew that San Andreas already came out on PC almost 10 years ago, or for another reason? :)
