Doest Microsoft own PC gaming?

Dont games run on Windows created by Microsoft?
So they get a piece of that money too?

If this is true, why would Microsoft go with an xbox
- And why charge for online when its better and free on PC?

Correct me if Im wrong, Im posting to be informed on this, thanks

I never thought about it but people release programs/games all the time that run on windows without having to pay license fees to MS.

IMO fps are smoother on console. I like the controls more.

So long as he tries the cutesy "I am asking to learn, THANKS!" thing, he will always claim a poor, unsuspecting, intelligent individual.

Microsoft gets a much larger cut from Xbox. i doubt they make anything from steam sales. so that is probably why. pity people are still suck in the past with consoles.. PC gaming FTW.
