Microsoft will continue to invest in PC gaming

Wednesday, 28th January 2009 11:23 GMT By Mike


Microsoft has told Edge that it is still committed to PC gaming after appointing Ron Pessner as its Game for Windows head after Chris Early was laid off earlier this week.

“Moving ahead, Microsoft will continue to invest in Windows as a first-class gaming platform through great Windows out of box experiences, our online gaming services including Games for Windows – Live, MSN Games, and Messenger games, and through new games for Windows developed by Microsoft Games Studios,” said the firm.

“Working closely with Ron [Pessner] will be Dave Luehmann, a long time Microsoft games veteran and general manager within Microsoft Games Studios, who will now be overseeing internal development and publishing for all Windows-based games.”

    If they made a mouse and keyboard with rumble, it would be much better though, I think.

    yeah, it was an edit. i didn’t have time to finish my post. i had to leave for an exam.

    now, about pc games. pc games don’t suck! games r best on pc out of all platforms. they have the best visuals, gameplay and story. why visuals? because pcs r way more powerfull then any console out there. why gameplay? because of the mouse and keyboard, duh. what?, any retard knows that. why do u think they don’t make cross-platform games? because console gamers would get owned and why make your best clients feel bad about themselves? why story? this actually is the main reason for why pc games r the best, because u’r not allowed to make mistakes on pcs, if u make a bad game and realease it for consoles, it’s ok, u’ll sell at least some, (because console gamers r by definition casual, and they’ll buy pretty much everything just to pass the time), and u survive. if u make a bad game for pcs u’r done for. pc gamers r hardcore, we don’t settle with just anything. if u make a bad game, u go to hell and u die. we don’t care! we r the best and we want nothing but the best!

    oh and sorry for the foul language. i’m just annoyed by console gamers. no offence.
