Microsoft has released three classic Windows games for Windows Phone 8 devices today. The games are Minesweeper, Mahjong, and Microsoft Solitaire Collection. Solitaire will include several modes including my personal favorite, FreeCell. All of the games feature Xbox Live compatibility, leaderboards, and achievements. In addition. Minesweeper will support the Windows Play, Pause, Resume feature that allows you to switch devices in mid-game (i.e. go from Windows Phone 8 to a Windows 8 PC or vice versa).

If you haven’t picked up Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V yet and want to get it on the Xbox 360, you’ll be able to do so for 33% less as it is currently on sale for $40.19 on the Xbox Marketplace. They don’t seem to list an expiration date for the deal, but I would imagine it’s probably only valid through the 31st.
