Microsoft recommending the same 10 Xbox Live games for all Windows Phone 7 games


Hopefully this is just a bug, but it certainly is not helping independent developers when Microsoft recommends the same 10 Xbox Live games as supposedly related apps for all games in Marketplace.

Winsource has noticed this, and I can confirm my handset is similarly affected.

Winsource notes:

What’s going on here? This is obviously unfair treatment towards game developers. Xbox Live games already get preferential treatment over the average game. Not only is this unfair, but it’s also annoying. I’m trying to find some new unknown games and the related apps just stays the same. As far as I’m concerned it might as well not even be there. If Microsoft wants to catch the eye of more 3rd party game developers they need to stop playing favorites and fix this.

I could not agree more.
