See more: Mobile XNA Win8
I read this blog:[^]

which says that XNA can be used to create apps for windows phone store, but in another msdn article, it says that You can’t create new XNA Framework apps that target Windows Phone OS 8.0. Below is the link:[^]

These are two contradictory statements for me. I want to build a game for Nokia Lumia 920, Kindly correct me if I can still use XNA for Win phone 8.
Thank you.

Yes, you can use XNA in Windows Phone 8. Open Visual Studio, File > New Project, and choose Windows Phone as your template category. You'll see this:


However, the MSDN article IS correct. If you want a full XNA solution, you're going to need to target the Windows Phone 7.1 framework. This app will still perform like you expect on Windows Phone 8 devices.
