Microsoft has launched 'PLAY', which allows you to play Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA) games on your Windows 8 or Windows RT devices. There are only 15 games available for now and Microsoft says it has no plan to port more popular XBLA games to Windows 8/RT.

These games are available right now:

  • Skulls of the Shogun
  • The Gunstringer: Dead Man Running
  • ilomilo+.
  • Wordament
  • Toy Soldiers: Cold War
  • Taptiles
  • Rocket Riot 3D
  • Reckless Racing Ultimate
  • Pinball FX2
  • Microsoft Minesweeper
  • Microsoft Solitaire Collection
  • Microsoft Mahjong
  • Hydro Thunder Hurricane
  • Adera
  • 4 Elements II Special Edition

The fastest way to find these games is to launch the Xbox Games app, not Windows Store. Then, just navigate to the Windows Games Store.
Now enjoy this promotional trailer form Microsoft Studios. :)

Trials Evolution is coming to PC on March 21.


In fact most XBLA games eventually gets ported to Windows  and released on Steam, for example Toy Soldiers, Limbo, The Walking Dead, Mark of the Ninja etc. are already available on Steam.
