First Games For Windows Store Revealed

The Verge is reporting that a source close to Microsoft has confirmed a list of games that will be available on the Consumer Preview version of Windows 8 that will be released very soon. These games are:

  • Hydro Thunder
  • Toy Soldiers
  • Reckless Racing
  • Angry Birds
  • Ilomilo
  • Rocket Riot
  • Full House Poker
  • Tentacles
  • Crash Course
  • Ms Splosion Man
  • Wordament
If you’re an avid Xbox gamer, you’ll recognize many of the titles from the list as Xbox LIVE arcade titles, including Toy Soldiers, Hydro Thunder, ilomilo, Full House Poker, and Ms. Splosion Man. The selection of games made available is pretty varied, with some of my favorites from LIVE arcade being included. Pinball and Solitaire will pre-installed, while the aforementioned games will be available as optional downloads.
The consumer preview build is scheduled to be made available later this month, so we’ll keep you updated and will possibly have some reviews of these games available for you to check out later.
