Is there a way to buy games on the Windows Phone with MSP? I would rather not give Microsoft my credit card info and I have a butt load of MSP. I want Contre Jour and Doodle Jump!

Not to the best of my knowledge. I know you can't on a WP7 unfortunately. I know WP8 has the wallet feature but not sure how that works...sorry. Someone else can most likely shed some light.

Don't think so. I know paypal and phone bill are options though.
Edit: Apparently you can add a MS gift card to the wallet app.

So, Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Star Wars are finally available for WP7 owners but they are not Xbox Live games :(
Also, awesome sale, thanks for the heads up!

I look at the store everyday. It is habitual now...i can't quit! lol. I am happy it was pac-man. Would be sweet if they have a new discount daily for the next 12 days.

Good find! To be fair, I knew about it that early as well, but I had to take my son to school and do a few things before I could write it up. MasterMeaty is just too fast for me to keep up.

Might be stupid questions, I apologize... All these games on sale are they just for Windows Phone 7? If I get a Win 8 tablet or phone, will these be playable? And does anyone know if there's a way to check the Win 8 Store for sales on games (I saw that the google store has sale prices on Angry Birds Space)?

They are for WP8 also. That is what I have and got Pacman, Kinnectimals and the coutre jour for $.99 each.

Not sure if he was asking about just WP8 or Win8, but there are separate versions of Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Star Wars for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8. This is the thread to get info on Windows Phone deals, but I'm not sure there is one for Windows 8. With the push to release games and apps on Win 8, a deal thread for that would be helpful if it doesn't already exist.

edit: Actually here is a Win8 thread from x360a that is kept up to date:

4 Elements II is currently on sale.

haha. Like a ninja. Do you think we may get a new sale daily leading up to Xmas east?

I am buying the sale titles just so I can download them once I get a wp8 device. I have not touched a lot of the games I bought a few months ago still.

They aren't always updated right away, but there are apps like AppDeals and Market Deals that keep track of various game/app deals.

Might be stupid questions, I apologize... All these games on sale are they just for Windows Phone 7? If I get a Win 8 tablet or phone, will these be playable? And does anyone know if there's a way to check the Win 8 Store for sales on games (I saw that the google store has sale prices on Angry Birds Space)?

Not stupid at all; it can be a bit confusing. To expand upon what was said above...these deals are for both Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8. The majority of games currently available are the same regardless of which OS you have (so a purchase on WP7 can be downloaded on WP8). Many of the games are available for Windows RT (tablets) and Windows 8, but those have to be purchased separately; they are not cross-compatible with the phones. Some of them aren't even cross-compatible between WinRT and Win8. Like I said, the whole thing is a little confusing and I might not even have all of that correct.

I don't have WinRT or Win8, so I don't know how to check deals aside from checking the link that was posted above. But I know that after Christmas, the Countdown To 2013 sale will be extended to tablets and PC's.


I am buying the sale titles just so I can download them once I get a wp8 device. I have not touched a lot of the games I bought a few months ago still.

I'm probably going to have to do that too. I've already done it for one other game that went on sale a few weeks ago. Now I just have to hope that nothing gets delisted.

Using bombs on Pac Man CE DX doesn't work very well. Still, it's an ok game for a buck. Got one more achievement to knock out then I'll probably be done with it.

You can get Xbox Achievements on the iPhone? Can anyone confirm that? I know it says it on the product page, but that might just be a copy/paste thing. I can't imagine they would allow that...

Yup, you're right. Their blog says the same thing, this is the first iOS game to have real Xbox Live Achievements.

http://wordament.com...ent-now-on-ios/

Looks like they only have 50G available on the iOS version, but still. If Microsoft wants to have their own unique operating system for phones, why are they slowly leaking every enviable feature of their OS over to other systems? Boggles the mind. We'll see if this is some type of anomaly, or becomes a regular occurrence in the future.

The reviews for Galaga Legions DX (WP7) have been horrible, all citing bad controls as a major problem. I'm downloading the demo now which is taking a really really long time. I don't have high hopes considering how insanely hard the XBLA version was, and now the controls are made worse.

A rare $0.99 game I may pass up since there's been so many good sales this week already.

The controls really are that bad. But Galaga Legions DX is only a little hard - maybe you're thinking of the much tougher first Galaga Legions? If you decide to pick it up, use my Achievement Guide and the embedded videos and you'll probably come away with the full 200 GS.

Articles coming up later today on iBomber Defense, the Galaga Legions DX sale, and Wordament jumping ship.

I was also expecting a lot from Galaga Legions DX. It's one of my favorite XBLA games. Saying that, on WP it's pretty horrible. The controls are laggy and worthless. Too bad :(
