I'm sorry if this is an old question and I hadn't really been keeping up much. But, I don't recall seeing many recent PC games in the store carrying the Games for Windows logo anymore....but, I could be mistaking.

Also, what ever happened to the ability for PC players to play 360 players? Any idea why they abandoned that idea?

It's become a mere myth and has yet to happen, if ever. No reasons have been given.

The "reason" why MS cancelled cross platform play was "supposedly" top xbox players were getting "destroyed" by mediocre PC players. That is the rumor going around.

Shadowrun does it, doesn't it? I think most console gamers aren't interested in getting destroyed by PC players, and PC players don't want to be on the receiving end of gimped MP that tries to make it fair for console players. I could be wrong...

Edit; sort of beaten... damn it.

The cross platform play has only happened with shadowrun as far as I'm aware.

Shadowrun is the only FPS and Universe at War is the only RTS games that have cross platform play between 360 and PC. Portal 2 is the only game where you can play together on the PS3, Unreal Torney 3 is the the only game that you can make "mods" on the ps and port them over to the PS3 to play.

That new Counterstrike Global Offensive (I think thats it.) is supposed to have cross platform. I think this could be the biggest case of us xboxers being destroyed by PC users. Then again I think 85% of the PC community is ticked about that game and still thinks 1.5 is the bees knees.

a lot of PC users probably wouldn't like playing against console gamers, just on principle. However, if it were cross platform, console gamers would be at a severe disadvantage.

You aren't getting cross platform unless something has changed. Valve has stated it will be PS3/PC cross platform. Also, the PS3 users will have keyboard and mouse support...to level the playing field.

Nitpicky, but that isn't exactly true since the community isn't split that much. From today, the peak numbers are:

61,022 Counter-Strike
49,720 Counter-Strike: Source
