Microsoft has announced 15 exclusive games coming to the Xbox One in its first year but PC gamers aren’t likely to see all of that content. When asked about Microsoft’s Window’s 8 gaming strategy, Matt Booty, general manager of Redmond Game Studios and Platforms, said, “We have got everything from very, very casual games, like our very much improved and reimagined Solitaire, all the way to graphically complicated games like The Harvest.”

When asked more specifically about AAA games such to Gears of War and whether Microsoft’s focus is on the lower-end, from a first party perspective, he responded, “We’re talking about console games, but there could be some franchises that also end up with a PC game, when I think about more connected experiences across those platforms, it’s things that show up within that family of devices where we’ve got Xbox Live, like Windows Phone and Windows 8,” and “not what you might consider a more traditional desktop PC game.”
