    They’ll have to do a much better job with the GFWL client it is apparently very buggy and just mention GFWL on sites like RPS and people come out the woodwork to complain.

    Valve’s steam client may not be as slick GUI wise in operation but it works well enough and is much less problematic.

    one of the rare times when it’s appropriate to call something doomed to failure from the start.

    Nothing in that announcement is of any real note. GTA3? Deus Ex game of the year? Average Capcom games?

    With Steam growing hugely and clearly dominant and MS seems as being console focused as an evil empire that tried to charge for online on PC I just can’t see this going anywhere.

    GFWL on PC is like Xbox in Japan – MS tries, but in the end it’s going to get nowhere fast.
