Microsoft praises Valve, vows 'renewed focus' on PC games

F*** Microsoft in terms of PC gaming. They've never delivered. I sincerely don't even listen to anything they have to say about anything regarding PC gaming besides DirectX.

DirectX is all that matters anyway. Who cares if Microsoft provides official support? The PC is already the best gaming platform in existence, and we already have Steam. What more do you guys want?

Well for one, to get a statement from Microsoft without their fingers crossed behind their back. What else? Ooh, more support from niche Japanese developers, more devs that stop letting ancient hardware hold back game design, fewer clients, and for us to be treated like human beings. This is all off the top of my head.

Oh, and if I were you I would worry about Microsoft emerging into the PC gaming market anyway since their first priority is trying to f*** their customers.

Only thing I want is more Japanese support, because I don't want a PS4, but I wan't Metal Gear Solid. Maybe the new one ( not the crappy demo ) will be on PS3. I would still rather not play on 10 year old hardware.

You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

This. If they support PC gaming, why do they still refuse to port 90% of the games over to the platform. Just look at Alan Wake for instance. The devs of the game had to beg just to get Microsoft's permission to port their game to PC. And whatever happened to that Halo 3 PC port rumour? Turns out to be untrue, hasn't it?

Thanks ms, gimmie fable 2 on pc finally as way of apology


While it's arguably the best of the trilogy, you're really not missing out on too much.

I wonder if this re-focusing on the PC platform is the first move towards Microsoft abandoning the XBone...

Not by a longshot. As Cool_Dude pointed out above, Microsoft vows to "refocus on PC gaming" every year or two, and it's absolutely nothing more than empty words.
