Your app. Your chance to win the Ultimate Experience

Enter the Ultimate Experience.

Want to win the ultimate backstage pass? If your app has what it takes, you could be hanging out with the Windows 8 Games Studios team and the makers of Xbox enabled games at Microsoft Studios. You'll get a sneak peek at a future game and even join the developers in a coding session!*
To enter The Ultimate Experience, just publish your app(s) in the Windows Store and/or Windows Phone Store and enter them here before the promotion ends. The more eligible apps you enter, the more chances you have to win! Our judges will pick the three best apps, and those devs will win the Grand Prize. Even if you don't win, as long as you publish at least one eligible app you still qualify for other rewards-like a copy of Halo 4 AND a Windows Store and/or Windows Phone Store reimbursement, valued at $49 to $99†. How's that for a win-win opportunity?
Check out all the rewards available for publishing your eligible app(s) to the Windows Store and/or Windows Phone Store between December 20, 2012-February 28, 2013.
