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 WPC 2014: Microsoft's Android Counterattack http://winsupersite.com/mobile-devices/wpc-2014-microsofts-android-counterattack <div class="field-deck"> As with Chromebook, an emphasis on price-matching </div> <div class="node-body article-body">During the second Worldwide Partner Conference keynote this week, Microsoft's Tony Prophet explained how the firm has responded to the low-cost Android tablets and smart phones that are now flooding the market.

But we do know this much: The strategy relies almost completely on meeting Android on price.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/mobile-devices/wpc-2014-microsofts-android-counterattack" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/mobile-devices/wpc-2014-microsofts-android-counterattack#comments Android Mobile devices Windows 8.1 with Bing Windows 8 Windows RT Thu, 17 Jul 2014 15:11:00 +0000 41221 at http://winsupersite.com Skype Group Video Calling Comes to Modern Windows App http://winsupersite.com/skype/skype-group-video-calling-comes-modern-windows-app <div class="field-deck"> Modern app picks up more functionality </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft announced today that it has added group video calling to the Modern app version of Skype for Windows.
