The store is the official outlet for programs Microsoft has tested to ensure they work with Windows 8.
A mismatch in the US and Europe over game ratings led to the games' exclusion outside North America.
Microsoft has relaxed its restrictions so the titles will be tested to work on PCs and tablets running Windows 8."
