Microsoft should focus more on PC games, says Blizzard boss

Tuesday, 1st July 2008 16:16 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Speaking to Gamasutra, Blizzard COO Paul Sams has hit out at Microsoft for not focusing enough on PC gaming.

“Well, their gaming focus is very much on the 360,” he said. “And that makes sense, cause they’re a hardware manufacturer as well as a software developer. And so they’ve got a lot of money and investment tied up in that system.

“Certainly they have a lot in Windows. And Windows is a system that supports all the business applications as well as games.

“And I kind of look at it and say to myself, and I think similarly to Rob, is that it would be great if they put more emphasis on the Windows operating system, certainly probably the most prominent operating system in the world. Even more so than console boxes.”

    Completely agree. I doubt Mr Sams would have seen the comments from Peter Zetterberg in his interview for when he said this, but it just serves to re-emphasise the point: MS are more focussed on the 360 than they are on PC gaming.
