    Oh great, Monday with a side of M$ bullshit. Like that wasn’t already part of having windows phone… Give and give, while Google takes and bans!

      Unfortunately this is true, there is already an Xbox LIVE version of Microsoft’s O=Wordament, Xbox LIVE has been something that made Windows Phone unique, not even Nokia’s Asha, Nokia’s other platforms or even Windows Mobile, Microsoft is actually the only ”nice company” in that they want to take care of their users on no matter what type of platform they are, Mactopia is the #2 app maker for Macintoshes… Mactopia is a division of Microsoft.

      It’s sad to see that we have almost no exclusives, Xbox Music, now Xbox LIVE ¿isn’t there anything Microsoft will give only us Windows Phone-users will give to make us feel superior to other platforms? H.T.C. and Samsung/Anycall and Huawei have real envy towards even the Nokia Lumia 520 for its superior Nokia camera-centric software, while Nokia apps are now the only and last fortress Windows Phones have (and even Lumia-exclusively).

      Today I bought a Nokia Lumia 920 to replace my H.T.C. Windows Phone because I really want to have the Nokia apps, but there isn’t much Microsoft-reasons to prefer the platform, I can have a full dedicated Outlook.com app on iO.S., Android or BlackBerry while there is only the built-in one for Windows Phone (>_<) WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAh.

        You have a better OS.
        So what if iOS and Android have a few (well only one actually) Xbox Live title. Brings more people into Xbox and thus more likely to move to MS in future. Smart open move by Microsoft.

    It’s sad to see that we’re losing our Windows Phone exclsuvives, we’ll, we don’t lose anything, even gain more competitors, but Windows Phone loses potential killer apps to get more users, I really hope that most Microsoft apps that are now exclusive to our platform shall remain that way.

      Wordament doesn’t sell phones.

    There may be few apps now, and in the future, to which Windows Phone users may lay claim as ‘world’ exclusives, and to some extent this may smart. However, in spite of all this, we shouldn’t lose sight of what brought us (and keeps us) on Windows Phone; The User experience!

    I’m fairly sure most Windows Phone users have used all/most of the Major platforms available before settling on WP, and I’m also fairly sure it wasn’t WP’s exclusives that brought us here, neither is it the anticipation of such exclusives that is keeping us here! :)

    We are here because we like using Windows Phone, we like the way it works, we like the experience we get when using it. That satisfaction is something that the other platforms doesn’t provide. It certainly isn’t the limited number of “firsts” that is keeping us here.

    Sure there are niggles that WP has yet to scratch for us; Custom ring-tones, separate volume controls, universal rotation lock, etc, and sure it has yet to provide all the hardware variations that we desire (I know I’ve been waiting for a 5″+ device for over two years now, since trading-in my Dell Streak 5), but despite all these issues we certainly don’t wish to be elsewhere.

    So, let’s not lose perspective, okay!
