Despite it being a 30-day Verizon exclusive, there has been some talk over at about possibly being able to bypass this restriction. Anyone that is in the U.S on a carrier other than Verizon able to buy the game yet? If so, please let us know how you got it.

Also, just a heads up, the Windows 8 version is also now available and there are no restrictions on that version. It's pretty fun so far with mouse and keyboard but hopefully soon they will add the controller support in a patch - the game is pretty much a dual-stick shooter anyway and I assume it works like that with the virtual sticks on the WP version.

Disappointed that is doesn't have controller support... I was pretty sure all the specs and reviews I read up to this point said it would... It's still pretty fun but would be better with controller support.

@4 It wasn't resubmitted... There's two versions. Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.

Changed region to UK (I live in US, am with ATT)and was not able to download the game. Say not compatible with my device. It says the same thing when my region is set to USA.

@#5: They said that they were going to patch in controller support later, which was mentioned in pretty much every preview, but it was never supposed to have controller support at launch.

Apparently the game only currently supports 1GB Ram handsets, I don't know if this is the issue one or two of you are getting?

PS Works fine on my Orange Lumia 920

Just a heads up guys, a version for phones that have 512MB of RAM is coming in August. The Microsoft Facebook page posted this link:
It says at the bottom about what I just said.

I bought this on Windows 8 a few days ago and the controls are horrible. It definitely needs controller support. Its unplayable in its current state.

1) This is the phone version
2) It's a touch screen game. Keyboard is gonna suck.
3) They will add controller support for pc next month.

I know that this is a really small complaint. The game looks really fun. But am I the only one that thinks these are some of the ugliest achievement pics in recent memory for a fairly big game? Eh, it could be worse. They could all be the SAME ugly pic like some launch games.

Would just like to add my piece although its almost completely irrelevant.
Halo is fucked. My favourite series of all time, and it's fucked. Grats Microsoft/343/ who the fuck ever, it's gone forever. These spin offs may be all I purchase halo-wise again, as the main story arc is full of cod bitches. That is all.

@27 While I agree it needs controller support to be more enjoyable on W8 OS I wouldn't say it is unplayable... I've been playing it on PC keyboard controls aren't that bad, lot to be desired but it's alright.

Still want controller support though.
