    Why premium prices?? Another reason why people are hesitant to switch

    • Alex F.

      Because it is a proper game with HD graphics – not the cut down mobile version.

    so i bought this for the xbox and i need to buy this again stupid MS
    the same with fruit ninja i got it for WP7.5 and xbox and if i want it on the surface i need too pay it again

    really bad move

    • Manu

      I agree 100%. They need to embrace the 3 screens with games like they do with music and video. I’d even be OK if there was a ‘step up’ cost or something, but to pay the same as someone who only has it on one device isn’t fair. Especially when the game is essentially a port.

    • Alex F.

      It’s up for developers to decide – and considering that porting game from platform to platform is a lot of work, I don’t see why it should be free. Not to mention that this edition also has a lot of new content.

      • Ryan T

        The problem is that all of the games are actually separate SKUs. See Wordament on WP7/8 and the version on Windows 8. You have two sets of Xbox achievements. They don’t share them even though the game is exactly the same on both platforms. Microsoft HAS NOT provided a way to make these games a single SKU across the three screens. The developer has no say in this matter.

        It’s the main reason why Play/Pause/Resume is very hard to come by even though it was promised as a big draw feature of the new Windows platforms.
