    Can't load 'Games' app


    Just got Windows 8 today. The Games app on the Metro screen (green tile with the white silhouette of an xbox controller) won't load for me. When I click on it, I get the green background with the progress swirl thingy, and it just spins endlessly. I closed it, tried again and this time I've left it up for 40 minutes. No other Metro app has taken more than 10 seconds or so the first time.

    Is it downloading a massive update? I let Windows update all the apps prior to doing anything.

    Suggestions? Yes I have tried restarting the computer

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm having the same problem -- how did it finally work itself out -- did you just let it run for a long time? (how long)

    I updated it via the Store, restarted it, open and closed it several times out of frustration and finally just let it run and eventually it loaded. I don't know why.

Hi All - I was under the impression that the Games App on my Windows 8 Pro desktop and on my Surface would work in a similar fashion to my windows 8 phone's game app. Whereas all games are located and tracked in the app. Unless I'm missing something the Games App in Windows 8 only tracks and...
