Do iPhones and Androids have a similar problem like this?


Yes, iOS devices have the same thing. They need double the amount of space for installation. I don't know about Android though.

I'll probably get some flak for asking, but I'm debating between a Nokia 920 & Nokia 820. Which would be the better choice for gaming for WP8?

I do know the 920 lacks any sort of expansion slot so that's one of my issues (hoarder here)

Microsoft does not allow you to save games or apps to SD card for some stupid reason so you want to get the most hdd space you can. Especially since games now require up to 4gb free space and your phone will steal your storage and put it into"other".

Here are the game developers that Xbox Windows Phone desperately needs - Please read, comment on the article itself, and tweet to everyone you can think of at Microsoft. Thanks guys!

The 920 is definitely the way to go thanks to more built-in storage and a higher resolution screen.

Wait? Seriously? So if I buy a men card for my 820 I can't save games on it? That totally blows.

Which is why I returned the Nokia Lumia 810 for T-Mobile and kept my original Samsung Focus. The Focus is still the best WP I say. Any word on when DoTW returns?

Buy on one platform, play on all platforms. That is a HUGE selling point.

Microsoft's lack of self-promoting key selling points for their products completely baffles me. If it wasn't for people like Paul picking up Microsoft's PR slack, the brand would have been dead in the water long ago. Thanks, Paul. :applause:

The cross-buy is nice (although I don't personally game on PC), but a multiplayer-focused strategy game just isn't for me. Nice to see new releases trickling through again.

I'm just glad there is actually something new for people with WP7 to play. With Microsoft turning its back on people who haven't upgraded to WP8 or a Nokia phone it would be nice if they would throw us a bone and run some deals on older games at the very least.

Yes, especially when they give us so little incentive to upgrade. The prospect of losing all of my game progress isn't exactly appealing.

Yes. This is a strange set back. Why this has not been implemented is strange. I just kept the games I started on my wp7 device and the games I never got around to I have on my wp8 device. So, other than not being able to play a few games without starting over on my wp8 I did not lose anything.

Does anyone have Shuffle Party for the Windows Phone? All of a sudden it's not working anymore and I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it. It just crashes upon startup.

I recommend Shark Dash, especially for a dollar. I have not tried batman but it is great to see releases trickling in and I am excited for Ascend New Gods!

I thought DOTW was supposed to make a return soon?! It appears perhaps that was just a rumor or I was dreaming... Oh well... I have too many games at the moment and a backlog so I can't complain.

Paul did say that MS told him that DotW will return, but didn't give him any timeframe I don't think.

^I would hope so, considering Twisted Pixel is now in the Microsoft fold and hopefully MS isn't in the business of releasing games for other platforms before they release it for their own.

However, I wouldn't be surprised if iOS got it first.

Thanks for pointing that out. I've reached out to Twisted Pixel, but they're at PAX so we might not get a reply very quickly.
