Hi there,

There is currently no way to play Xbox 360 titles on Windows Phone.

There are however certain titles in the Windows Phone Store which carry the Xbox branding. These apps will give you Achievements and Gamerscore towards your Xbox Live Profile.

Do you see how below my Gamerpic (look to the left of this post) there are five small icons? These are all games. The two furthest left are both Windows Phone games. One is Halo: Spartan Assault and the other is Amazing Alex (from the makers of Angry Birds). By playing these two games on my phone I have earned Achievements and Gamerscore on my profile.

To find other Xbox games for Windows Phone, go to the Store, press Games, swipe to the right and choose the tile that says Xbox. You can then view the titles in lists, such as New+Rising, Best-Rated and Top Free.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Ok. Thanks, Maxen13! I would also like to know if you like me buy the games on the Windows Phone Store with the money I have in my account (money via microsoft points)?

Sure you can. The Points no longer exist, but should now be converted into local currency. This money is found in your Microsoft Account.

You can see how much money you have in there by going to https://commerce.microsoft.com or by opening the Wallet app on your Windows Phone.

Provided there is money there you can then use this as a payment option in the Windows Phone Store.

To add money to your account, you can still add Microsoft Points - or now Xbox Live Gift Cards.

Other supported payment option in the Windows Phone Store are PayPal and credit cards, and some mobile carriers support carrier billing too (which means the charges from the Store are added to your phone bill).

Do you have any further questions? I'm here to help.

Thank you again. And yes, I still have doubts. If you have already done using an Android phone, tell me which one (Android or Windows phone 8) has the best games (in terms of graphic and gameplay)?

Well I have not used Android much so I cannot make a fair assessment.

Certainly Android has a wider range of apps and games, but then a lot of these are also 'spam' or malware.

And many developers will make their app for Android (or iOS) before Windows Phone which can be frustrating, but by and large Windows Phone has most apps you want anyway.

And the Xbox brand on games is supposed to mean higher quality (they undergo more certification to attain this status) than the typical game. Halo: Spartan Assault and Skulls of the Shogun exemplify this, but then there are games like Bug Village and Killer Instinct which are both so full of bugs they detract from the platform.

It's a bit mixed, and again I have never really used Android so cannot make too many comparisons, but I can say that in my almost-three years of using Windows Phone (first WP7, now WP8) I have been very happy with my phone(s). :-)

And I hope you will be too, with your Lumia 720 :D
