A late Windows Phone Marketplace update means no Fling just yet

Fling late

As Windows Phone gamers know, every Wednesday we get a new Xbox Live release and Deal of the Week to keep us entertained. Microsoft has actually been updating a little early lately – often on Tuesday evenings. But every now and then the Marketplace doesn’t update by Wednesday morning - the last few instances happened in January this year and September last year.

Unfortunately, today looks like one of those days – Fling has yet to show up on the Marketplace. Perhaps not the most hyped Xbox Live title, but it’s set to cost only 99 cents, which pretty much assures it will be a sales success. Likewise, the new Deal of the Week has yet to appear. Both of these problems could be rectified any minute, or it may take several hours yet. We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as Fling and the new sale pop up.

Just means we have to wait this much longer to uninstall it.

MissionSparta, let's not troll now.

Perhaps  everyone in the WP Division is busy with the Summit today?

Paul Acevedo says:

Certainly a possibility, though you'd think they'd automate it to make life easier.

It doesn't mean it'll sell well just because it's 79p (fortunately) for example Droplitz apparently tanked. That said I'll probably buy this one, looks clever.
