Halo: Spartan Assault Is Now Available For All Windows Phone 8 Users
Microsoft has released Halo: Spartan Assault for all Windows Phone 8 owners in the US. The company made the title available for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 devices worldwide back in July, but there was a catch in the US, where Verizon took over the initial distribution rights to leave AT&T and T-Mobile customers facing a wait.
Halo: Spartan Assault is a big deal for Microsoft as it is the first time that its renowned Halo franchise has been released for mobile devices. The company and its partners like Nokia will hope that the game provides another factor to persuade consumers to purchase a Windows Phone 8-powered device.

Halo: Spartan Assault game is priced at $6.99 and requires 1GB of RAM for installation. It’s been well received, to date, and includes 25 new missions for Halo enthusiasts to get their teeth into, although the most dedicated fans outside of the US have probably already done so.
We will have to wait and see if and when this game will make its way to India. Also, we will have to see if this step by Microsoft will help them to increase sales for Windows Phones. Recently Windows store reached more than 1,00,00 apps, which means Nokia and Microsoft are working hard for making Windows Phones considered in the ‘Best Sellers’ list.
