Starting today, Verizon customers and Windows 8 users will be able to get their Halo fix. For folks with a VZW Windows Phone 8 device, the hotly anticipated Halo: Spartan Assault is finally available to download from the Windows Phone Store, and those with devices running full Windows 8 or RT can grab a copy from the regular Windows Store -- with either version costing $6.99. Sadly, should you not be on Big Red, 343 Industries announced at Comic-Con that fans who aren't with Verizon will have to wait until August 16th to get their hands on the game. So, if you're a Windows Phone user that'll have to wait another month to get a copy of your own, tide yourself over with our hands-on.
