I guess I'm just a bit dismayed. I've been a massive proponent of the platform highlighting its good, while trying to forgive the bad, but I'm a bit worried. I think honestly it's a problem with the Microsoft name more than anything else we're seeing at this point. Where are the developers of the good iOS games (****, even crap like Zynga) on both WP8 and Wrt? Are developers really so anti-Microsoft that they're dragging their feet or releasing half-assed ports?
Bah, frustrated, sorry.
Anyone else feeling anything about this?

I expect to see a bunch of Unity games ported over within the next few months. Unity 4.0 was just released.Talk to me about Windows Phone, Windows 8, XBOX, art, animation, design, or anything! Be sure to follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook (say you're from here or I may not accept)

But Win8 also runs these publishers' existing games just fine. The ROI from Win8 store games will have to come from Surface RT and other ARM systems that can only run Store games. And there just aren't very many of those at the moment. This was always the gaping hole in Microsoft's plan...

I cant remember a mobile OS that had amazing games and support less than 2 years in existance except maybe the iPhone. I had the first ever android phone (T-Mobile G1) and it was HORRIBLE with support. It wasn't until Verizon got andoird a year later and promoted it as the iPhone alternative that it really took off because at the time iPhones were only on AT&T.
Now android, iphones, and wp phones are everywhere so it's a HUGE competitive market. Not like it was. Give it time.

I'm pretty excited about the Unity support myself, the nice thing about Unity is that all you have to do to make a game work for different platform is just re-compile. So hypothetically some of the games on iOS and Android that were built using Unity could be ported over extremely easily. Now if only we'd get UDK support then we'd be set!

Need for Speed Hot Persuit has some pretty freaking good graphics. I would call that high-end as far as graphics.
As far as just straight up quality games pretty much all of the Xbox Live games except maybe 3 or 4 out of the 20+ that I have I would call "quality games"
