As much as I like Windows Phone, it's going to take at least a couple of years for it to take the number 3 spot. Every platform has its exclusives but the popular apps will always be released for iOS and Android. Also, it's likely that such an app won't be released for WP8 alongside iOS and Android.
The problem that WP faces is two juggernauts (iOS and Android) and BlackBerry. It's very unlikely that WP will surpass either of the juggernauts but it's possible that it can secure a third spot from BlackBerry. Now, BlackBerry isn't dead yet. BB10 isn't doing as well as they expected but it also isn't doing bad. And for WP to succeed, BB10 needs to suffer the same fate as Palm's WebOS. This is my opinion and just one possible outcome in the coming years. It's also possible that one of the juggernauts, iOS or Android, fails and WP gobbles up a huge chunk of the market.

Really? You got figures for that, because last I heard, BlackBerry's were still clinging on... Curious!
WP is already secured as 3rd place

WP is already secured as 3rd place but yes it will take a while before it overtakes iOS/Android but as we know on the technology landscape things can happen pretty darn quickly! That and the fact Android might start falling apart if Samsung pursues Tizen. The game could change pretty quickly. Then theres possibilities (yes they are extreme) like Android becoming a complete malware festival with web exploits and the like.

Of course another reason to get excited is the exclusivity part. As we informed you yesterday, this game is a “first” on Windows Phone 8 with the iPhone and Android versions due at a later date. For that, we think Miniclip and GG2 deserve at least a trial, no?
