Now Tune In also needs 1 GB RAM ? This is getting ridiculous.
My iPod Touch 4th gen can handle every game fine with 256 MB RAM and is able to play any game on the appstore smoothly apart from one or two.
How come WP apps/games need that much of RAM ?
I am a Lumia 820 user but it concerns me about 620,720,8S users as well as WP8 platform.
One of the strong reasons for Android to gain up marketshare quick was low priced phones and mid ranged phones standing as a backbone to reach every part of the world and every consumer but with these high ram requirements , I don't see WP8 platform moving fast as we all expect it to move.These small Apps like temple run or angry birds or subway surfers play a major role.

Then why don't you play the games on your iPod touch and stop to whine about something you should have been well aware of while deciding to buy a windows phone.
And don't compare those low/mid priced junkdroid phones to any windows phone out today. Those phones are laggy all the time. If you decided to board the windows phone band wagon, be loyal to it.
With Microsoft patience, is the key. Good luck.

(not being mean or nothing) but since most of these games were ports from developers, the developers have to do a bunch of different coding and since they want to release apps faster, they don't worry about the ram, but later they update the apps usually in 2 weeks if all goes well

As I said either you pick up a GT-R or wait until Ford,brings one out of their stable.

I don't understand why you are so angry at MS. Did MS developed and published those games? No they did not. The developers choose to support only 1gb devices. Blame them. Contact those developers and complain that you want to buy their game and so they should make a 512mb ram version. Then they will spend the time and make it for 512mb devices. Blame MS for the apps they make not for apps made by others.
As for the platform moving fast. What does that means? I'm a company I'm making a game. I choose to support wp8. I then hire some wp8 programmers or retrain my programmers to work on wp8 devices. This takes between 1 month to 2 month. This process of course starts in November when they have the sdk and phones the phones at their disposal. There comes December with winter holidays. Actual work begins in January. It takes 2-3 month to make a good game so what do you expect? How fast is fast in your dictionary? Software products as other products need time to be made and tested. Seams so few now remember the android launch and it's problems and lack of apps in the begging and it's slow speed.

Edit: The SDK supports,devices with 512mb so to make it super simple for you to understand "wait until the devs get them out for the 512" .
