You can convert your existing WP7 Silverlight apps to the new WinPRT API but you can't create or maintain existing Silverlight or XNA applications that target WP8. You can't even convert existing XNA apps except by hand.
There are also enough differences between Windows 8 WinRT apps and WP8 apps to make life difficult.
It probably would have been better to stick to WP7 and just make it a bit better."
