In an interview with MCV Microsoft states that they should be the leader in the PC platform and have other companies look at them as a model to follow. They claim that Fable III, Flight, and Age of Empires Online represent an investment in the platform. Shocking statement, considering that hardly anyone plays first person shooters on the PC any more.

“There’s been a fair bit of criticism aimed at Microsoft that we were spending a lot of our focus on console, and we need to be putting resources behind PC as well,” Microsoft Games Studios’ general manager Dave Luehmann told MCV in an interview.

“Other companies should look to Microsoft for leadership, but I’m not sure they do. It is our job to lead the way on PC. And in some ways we are doing that and in other ways we are not. So we need to step up.



“We are putting some real investment and big IPs behind the Windows platform. We’ve spoken of the first three, Fable III, Age of Empires Online and Microsoft Flight. However we are not going to stop there.”

“I think it is the responsibility of first parties to push the business models in to new directions. We will test some ideas – some will work and some won’t.”

microsoft, bullshit,


News coming out of Gamescon is that Microsoft's commitment to PC gaming is completely renewed! Yeah, I've heard that song and dance before. It seems every year Microsoft comes around and says that they're going to refocus on the PC, that the PC will be their new development?

Remember when they were really going to make LIVE a viable platform on the PC? And now they're spouting some bullshit about reinvigorating some of their best franchises such as Age of Empires and Flight Simulator.

Oh wait, those are the two franchises that they totalled cancelled, and fired the teams working on them.

This is all well and good, but why has no media asked
the question: "What about the fans that diligently
went out and bought each X-game when they were
released?" I am one of them, as why shouldn't I ...

I was in the beta. Everything felt off and

the lag it would still be a lot uglier than a locally

Updated the original post with that video. I dunno, I
think it was in poor taste personally. But if you
don't have any money for advertise I guess you do what
you need to do.

Guess it's just a publicity stunt after-all. Pretty

I'd be surprised to see it get a client, unless that
client is optional. One of the selling points of GOG
that they kept going on about was that you didn't need
a client. I'd be even more surprise...
