Microsoft’s First Windows Store Games for Windows 8 Leaked Out!

By on February 8, 2012

Windows 8 is the biggest effort by Microsoft for making a comeback in the big game of technology. Now the company is in preps of launching its Windows Store for a public preview and the “Consumer Preview” version of Windows 8 that will offer numerous popular games for the company’s latest operating system. Now, a spy to Microsoft’s plans has leaked out a list of games those would be firstly available in both preview versions of Windows Store.

Here’s the list of the games coming to Windows Store at first;

  • Hydro Thunder
  • Toy Soldiers
  • Reckless Racing
  • Angry Birds
  • Ilomilo
  • Rocket Riot
  • Full House Poker
  • Tentacles
  • Crash Course
  • Ms Splosion Man
  • Wordament

Two highly liked games Pinball and Solitaire will shine pre-installed on the Windows 8 Consumer Preview build, with the additional Windows Store games available as optional downloads.

Microsoft’s Windows Store is another good catch for the app developers since they will be allowed to submit free or paid apps and games compatible with Windows 8, ranging between $1.49 to $999 for example. Microsoft would grab the 30% commission from each sale at first and when the sale of an app hits the figure of $25000 in sale, the company would cash 20% on each sale.

Microsoft is well determined to push out the preview version of its Windows Store by the end of February, alongside the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. We hope that Microsoft would offer high profile applications to match the initial game offerings for Windows 8 operating system.
