That's no surprise, of course. But there's some good news for Windows users, in particular. Modern Combat 5: Blackout is available for both Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8/8.1, and was made so simultaneously with the release on other platforms, which is a first. And better still, you only have to buy it once: If you get the game on Windows, you own it on Phone too, and vice versa.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/games/modern-combat-5-windows-81-and-windows-phone-881" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/games/modern-combat-5-windows-81-and-windows-phone-881#comments Windows 8.1 Windows Phone 8 Windows Phone 8.1 Windows 8 Windows Phone Windows RT Games Fri, 25 Jul 2014 16:01:00 +0000 41621 at http://winsupersite.com Xbox One SmartGlass Beta for Windows Phone 8/8.1 http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/xbox-one-smartglass-beta-windows-phone-881 <div class="field-deck"> SmartGlass finally gets useful </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft has released a public beta version of the promised Xbox One SmartGlass release that adds a ton of new features for Xbox One users, including the ability to buy Xbox One games on your handset, "like" items, and more.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/xbox-one-smartglass-beta-windows-phone-881" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/xbox-one-smartglass-beta-windows-phone-881#comments Windows Phone 8 Windows Phone 8.1 Xbox One Windows Phone Thu, 24 Jul 2014 19:52:00 +0000 41601 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Muddies the One Windows Waters http://winsupersite.com/windows/microsoft-muddies-one-windows-waters <div class="field-deck"> No, Virginia, we're not heading towards a single Windows </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Well, here we go again.

And it most certainly doesn't actually mean that there will only be "one" version of Windows 9 (or whatever) that runs on PC, tablets, phones, TVs, embedded devices, and so on.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows/microsoft-muddies-one-windows-waters" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows/microsoft-muddies-one-windows-waters#comments Windows 9 Xbox One Windows Phone Windows Server Windows Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:02:00 +0000 41471 at http://winsupersite.com Coming Soon: August 2014 System Update for Xbox One http://winsupersite.com/xbox-one/coming-soon-august-2014-system-update-xbox-one <div class="field-deck"> A ton of new functional updates </div> <div class="node-body article-body">As has been the case for several months now, Microsoft has provided a list of new features and changes coming in next month's System Update for Xbox One.
