Can't wait for Rayman. And I'd pick up Rabbids too of it had some achievements...but like you said.....probably won't.

OK, question. I haven't bought any windows games before. When you get to the screen that says TRY or BUY, if you click on buy, is there a second screen to pop up before actually charging you? For this promo, I couldn't download the game for free, but was sent download directions to my email. When I click on the link, it pulls shows the game at $4.99, so I didn't want to be charged. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Same with me. Earthworm Jim controls like shit on a touchscreen device, but free is free. EDIT: Well I just got 50 Gamerscore in about 10 minutes of play. I guess I shouldn't bitch too much. :)

Yes, there will be a confirmation screen if you tap "Buy", verifying the price.

Same here. I hate missing out on a freebie, but considering I already owned Assassins Creed, and the Earthworm Jim port is horrible, I can sleep easy. :)

These never showed up as free for me and I checked multiple times.

I think my app store is messed up. I just realized today it isn't pushing app update notifications for some reason - I have to search for the app in the store and manually update it. Pretty big issue when a setting update is out there and I can't do anything about it.

Anyone else having this problem? It's really ridiculous... This is my third Lumia and I thought this one was okay, but that's not the case I'm seeing. The dust under the front camera lens is driving me crazy too.

If you blow some compressed air into the earpiece, that should clear it up for you. I have to do this to my wife's Lumia 920 every couple of weeks because she periodically loses the ability to hang up or use the menus when making a phone call (the sensor gets covered in dust).

Thanks dude! If only the other posters here would be as warm hearted. It's not like getting Xbox games on WP fixed up matters or anything...

I think he just means he's looking for a bigger response because of how important this is to Windows Phone gamers.

Exactly. Improving the state of Xbox games on Windows Phone is something that should be important to anyone to plays Xbox WP games. I realize it's not as immediately gratifying a concept as getting a free game or a new deal, and here we are at a deals site. But I honestly feel everyone who plays these games and thus has an interest in Xbox WP deals should care about this subject and have something to say on it.

So my friend had a blackberry and it keeps messing up on him. He's gotten replacements countless times and is looking for a new phone. I offered to sell him my old windows 7 phone and it sounds like he's going to buy it. My question is will he be able to play the xbl games I purchased on it under his gamertag. If not that's fine.just curious.

Unfortunately, no. Changing the GT wipes the phone.
