Any updates on that, Rich?

EastX, I just watched your review for Castlevania at WPcentral, nice one. Maybe I can do a guest review sometime.

Any clues for the next DOTW? I'm hoping for The Harvest.

Well I hope the rumors are true that the HTC Trophy is coming to verizon by the end of this month. I'll definitely be in for one if that is the case. Anyone have any hands on time with it?

Also, just throwing this out there to those who might have transitioned from a Blackberry to a WP7. Is there any app/method for connecting a WP7 to blackberry enterprise server (BES) to sync up work email? Or possibly to just use WP7 to access your email via Outlook directly? We are running outlook 2007 with BES here at work and I'm trying to avoid having to hold onto the BB when I pick up a WP7.

According to this, MS is going to stop making Zune hardware. I hope this means they are coming out with a WP7 based portable and doesn't mean they are giving up all together.

I doubt it. MS has publicly said they are not interested in supporting hardware anymore and just doing software. They've traditionally been a software company, and with WP7 they can do just that.

Ummm, Microsoft is almost certainly going to make a WP7 non-phone device (or have someone else make it). The Zune announcement is definitely a step in that direction.

Glad you liked the video, Sean. They are kinda stressful to make since it's hard to talk and play a game simultaneously...

Is this just an assumption, or do you know something we don't ;)

Here's the WPCentral article on the Zune dying out.

No significant inside info, but it's what everybody at WPCentral expects.

Don't forget, Full House Poker is coming tomorrow! Will probably know the DotW tonight.

Odd. Went to download an update for Castlevania, and it says pending then disappears. Anyone ever have this problem?

Yeah, when it does that... You might need to uninstall Castlevania and then redownload the game (thus getting the update). That would delete your save file though. You could also try powering off your phone, turning it back on, and seeing if that helps.

The update, AFAIK, fixes the game crashing on the Cards screen. Not a huge deal as it doesn't crash every time.

I go into "buy more games", scroll down to the game and it says $4.99. Do you have to go somewhere else to get the $2.99 price?

I see a deal of the week thing in the Xbox Live app. It still says the Star Wars game.

Thanks :) Hey if you'd like to review it, I can send you a dev copy of the game (assuming you have a dev account). If not, I can reimburse you the $3 that the app costs (wish Microsoft would implement promo codes or something...)

Zohar I don't have a developer-unlocked phone :( but yeah, I might be able to review it in a week or two. Will PM ya (and my brother bought it on his phone BTW).

Hoffer you can see all past Deal of the Weeks in the DotW thread's third post. No Puzzle Quest 2 yet. I can tell you though, out of Puzzle Quest 2 and Castlevania Puzzle, Castlevania is like 5 times better on WP7. Namco didn't do a great job with PQ2's WP7 port.

Also, I found out next week's Xbox Live title!

Dang, I wanted coin golf :(

I also wish gameloft would drop more games. I've tweeted them about it but never got an answer. I know they announced Splinter Cell, but I would love spider-man, dungeon hunter or nova.

Has anyone who is playing Full House Poker on the Samsung Focus had a lot of problems with it crashing and locking up the phone ?

Was happening to me with monotonous regularity last night.

I'm surprised Gameloft is releasing titles so cautiously. I think with games like NOVA they're waiting for Microsoft to start allowing Xbox Live games to have online play. I'd be all over Spider-Man, their Final Fantasy 13 clone, and many of their other games as long as they're priced fairly.

Full House Poker hasn't crashed even once on my Focus. Loving that game.

I have the trial of Hexic on my WP7. I stink at puzzle games, but will probably pick it up for $2.

I will definitely skip the soccer game.

Harbor Master is coming to WP7 soon?!?! Probably my first or second most played game on my iPhone. That will be a day one purchase. I already know my other top 2 most played game Plants vs Zombies is coming. :)
