Meh.... I honestly don't see why Windows (Phone) 8 users get the discount here whereas us console ownsers have to pay full price considering this game wasn't originally $15 over Winodws 8 to begin with, and XBox One does have a modofied version of it.  I can understand the pricing of a tablet game going console plus the added content, but that's simply not the principle of it.  If PC users already have it on Windows 8 then why bother to repurchase it?  If they don't have an XBox One, which most PC users are more likely to stick to their PC versions anyway, that means they have to spend another $500 for an XBox One anyway, then $5 more for the game.  Windows Phone 8 users are basically in the same boat, with the exception of whether or not they own PC, XBox One, or both.  And I know some people will start asking things along the lines of, would I/it be fair to pay full price again had it be the other way around?  Absolutely!  I've already done it on multiplatIform retailer games in the past (Soul Calibur 2 on gameCube, playStation 2, and XBox since each had their own exclusive characters, Soul Calivur 4 on Xbox 360 and playStation 3 for the same reason prior to the Yoda DLC for PlayStation 3 and Darth VAder DLC fo XBox 360), so if it costs me/us full price because it's a considerdd a new purchase on another platform, then that's obviously the price I/we pay.  Irealize my response is obviously too clase to its releaseandas usual, 100% unlikely they doanything about it or ackowledge these types of things things, but I just rather ahd to get this out ether way, which I already have once or twice via YouTube comments.
