A source close to The Verge has provided a supposed list of the first games which will populate the Windows Store in the Windows 8 Consumer Preview build.
According to the source, Solitaire – as always, and Pinball will come pre-installed on Windows 8, with the additional Windows Store games available as optional downloads.
The Store will allow developers to submit free apps and games and charge between $1.49 and $999 with Microsoft taking 30% of the initial proceeds, and the 20% once the app or game reached $25,000 in sales.
Here’s the rumored list, and you’ll notice a couple high-profile titles in there:
- Angry Birds
- Crash Course
- Full House Poker
- Hydro Thunder
- Ms Splosion Man
- Reckless Racing
- Rocket Riot
- Toy Soldiers
