WP8 Notification Center/App?

So I was on FB just now and came across the following post from Microsoft Store:

The first Live Tile caught my eye. I've never seen it before and don't know what app it is (so if you know what it is please tell me), but it looks interesting since it shows the time and weather. I thought this might be a cool idea for a Notification Center. Think about it: it is consistent with Windows Phone in that it is a Live Tile and therefore would cycle through your notifications like any other Live Tile, but you can also tap it and actually go into the Notification Center. I think it would be a neat addition.

What are your thoughts on this? I know a Notification Center in WP is a touchy subject because a lot of people want one but a lot of people say WP doesn't need one thanks to the Live Tiles.
