Anybody think that Halo Spartan Assault will require 1GB of RAM?

This is the wrong place to post this mate. Admin would say best to ask in the games own forum but they don't get too many people visiting them so probably best to ask in here in the future.

But to answer your question it only requires 512MB.

I don't think they bother making forums for upcoming WP games. Had a little look but.. nothing.
I'll keep that in mind though, about posting in the other thread. This one for hardware, that one for games.

Is it definitely confirmed to be 512MB though? I trust you but maybe you could hook me up to where to find this sort of stuff out.

Good point Jardinho, they don't really make forums for upcoming games but the other is definitely best place to ask as it is the full WP8 game list but is more or less a general game thread.

My source for the 512MB is wpcentral.com which is my source for a lot of Window Phone info/news. See the article on Spartan Assault here. The info on the ram is near the bottom of the article.

Thanks Isaac, I always forget about wpcentral, seems like a good site but I never go on it.

And there are usually forums for most upcoming retail games, you just have to scroll and scroll to find them.

Yay, my lovely, cheap, cheap phone.

Also makes me wonder why, if they can make this run on 512MB of RAM, why can't they make games like Geodefense run on it? I'm gonna have to rob my Trophy back off my brother if I ever feel like playing Gd:Swarm

Thanks for this FAQ, it answered a few questions I had. I bought a cheap wp7 off ebay and looking forward to playing some games. And yeah the achievements was a driving force behind this whole thing.

I plan on getting a wp8 at some point when there is a lot more games out for it.

I'm thinking of getting a Windows phone just to play around with. Do I have to have service on the phone to download/play games or can I just use wifi?

I'm not super good with phones, but would this work JUST to play games & does it come with some sort of contract/monthly bill (I assume not since it's from EBay & the price is so cheap):

http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=371192769299

Just want to be sure. I have an iPhone 6 so I'm not looking into making a WP my main phone, but I do want to get achievements on some of the games WP offers.

That phone would work as a good opening into the Windows Phone.
Won't be able to play all the games with it being 512MB of RAM. (Only a few require 1GB at the moment I believe.)

By the Ebay Listing you have posted, it looks like it is NOT on contract, but locked to the T-mobile network.

By any means this seems like a good phone to dip your toes into Windows Phone, but if you are wanting to make it your main phone, I would go with something better.

EDIT: There will more than likely be a few newer phones coming out with the release of Windows 10 coming out soon.
