Confirmed: Minesweeper & Sudoku Are US-only XBL games

This morning the Windows Phone Team released two free, ad-supported games for Windows Phone: Minesweeper and Sudoku. The games are Metro-styled and come equipped with gamerscore and achievements, but many users noted that they could not see the games outside of the US.

Michael Stroh from Microsoft had to be the unfortunate bearer of bad news where on the Windows Phone Blog in the comments he notes that this is not a mistake or accident, the titles are US-only and the Xbox team does not have plans to bring these to countries outside of the US at this time.

This is a major bummer for those other users and I will look out for any updates on this if they happen.

  1. I live in London and was able to get both titles on my HD7, don’t know how or why maybe I’m just lucky like that.
