Look until they release the games any speculation about how well it will play or how the graphics will look is just that "speculation".

The more important news is that GAMELOFT is releasing WP8 games. It is a big deal for the WP8 platform.

To the critics of the WP8 platform saying it is DOA please explain to me why GAMELOFT is spending developer time to create 12 popular games for a Dead Mobile OS?

Same critics that said that XBOX was DOA as well.

And people said 'real hardcore games' wouldn't get ported to WP8/W8.

Guess what. When the engine's already ported, there's just testing and tweaking work to be done.

What about these games for Windows Phone 7.8? Will they run on WP7?

I don't think so, The games look to graphic demanding.

Half of those games - "Asphalt 7," "Modern Combat 4," "N.O.V.A. 3," "Order & Chaos Online," "Texas Poker for Prizes" and "Uno & Friends" - will support online multiplayer modes through Xbox Live upon release.

All of them are Xbox games (which requires achievements), and half of them will have Xbox Live multiplayer.
