  • We need Project Astoria again :C
  • Not happening. However we still have Project Bridges:
    - Islandwood (iOS apps)
    - Westminster (touch-based websites)
    - Centennial (Win32 legacy programs)
  • These Briges can't help about Pokemon GO :C
  • Actually they can, regardless game porting isn't hard when you use a cross platform game engine like Unity, Pokémon GO isn't on Windows 10 because the developer doesn't want it to be not because it's a hard job to get it on Windows.
  • I want pokemon go! Toooo....
  • The store setup is confusing for this app. It does not have the 'built for windows 10' note and the specified requirements say windows 8.1 or later. never installed the roku app before so really don't know if I got the new version
  • Can you use Roku box for Continuum?
  • Yes.
  • Cheers, looks like I'll be picking up a Roku box then!
  • How about the US? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I think that's what the author meant by originilally launched in June.
