Blizzard jumps on Windows 8 “catastrophe” bandwagon
Blizzard’s Rob Pardo’s echoed negative comments from Valve’s Gabe Newell in relation to Windows 8, saying the upgrade will be less than “awesome” for the PC game-maker.
Said Pardo in a tweet: “Nice interview with Gabe Newell – ‘I think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space’ – not awesome for Blizzard either.”
Windows 8 features touch and tablet features, as well as seeking to cater for the current desktop audience. Newell, especially, is backing Linux as an alternative to the new version of Windows as Microsoft is apparently seeking to “close” the platform.
