ITT: Let's all pretend that Microsoft views the PC format as competition to XB1

#1TheBorderColliePosted 8/8/2014 11:09:03 PM
And while we're at it, we'll pretend that Microsoft cannot possibly benefit in any way from a title utilizing their OS, which is the most popular in the world...

Ready...GO!!!

It's rather simple: In this topic, we are pretending that Microsoft feels threatened when one of their titles is ported to the PC, the home of their chief money-maker.

You answered your own question, most people already have Windows.

Unless Microsoft is the publisher or the developer of the game, this is how much they make if not.

Ready?

There, you see it. Nothing

In the case of Ryse, they are not the developer, nor the publisher for the PC version. They make absolutely nothing since the PC gamer already has Windows

If they didn't consider it competition then we would have seen Halo 3 and 4 on the PC.

Wrong. Microsoft absolutely benefits with every title that is released that utilizes their OS. Then again, you would have to have first-hand experience in the industry to know that...and not just be a run-of-the-mill anti-MS fanboy who spends all of their time trolling the XB1 boards.

There is a reason why MS is actively stating that they want to step up their focus on PC gaming in general.

They're obligated to ensure that every title releases on both the Xbox and PC formats?

LOL!

There is absolutely no gain for the company in a financial meaning, because Microsoft does not receive license fees for the software released on the PC, because PCs are composed of hardware, components which Microsoft does not own a single patent tol

Microsoft is worried about Steam stripping PCs from Windows, they're already working on a Linux based O/S and software developers are ready to jump ship.

Steam already destroyed Microsoft's gaming store on the PC, Steam is on the verge of taking Windows and removing it completely

Not always in direct royalties, but MS does indeed benefit on the tech and marketing end with PC releases.

And "LOL" at Steam bringing down the juggernaut that is Windows.

You need to use your head: Microsoft has pretty much NEVER viewed the PC format as any sort of competition to them. And there is a huge reason why. But again, you'd have to have true knowledge of what actually happens behind the scenes to know.
