Microsoft Vows ‘To Step’ Up PC Gaming

After years of ignoring PC and focusing all its efforts on Xbox 360, Microsoft has finally admitted that it needs to "step up" its PC gaming efforts.

"There's been a fair bit of criticism aimed at Microsoft that we were spending a lot of our focus on console, and we need to be putting resources behind PC as well," Microsoft Game Studios general manager Dave Luehmann said.

"Other companies should look to Microsoft for leadership, but I'm not sure they do. It is our job to lead the way on PC," he added. "And in some ways we are doing that and in other ways we are not. So we need to step up."

This is not the first time Microsoft makes such a promise. In fact, former Microsoft gaming executive Peter Moore promised in 2006 that the release of Windows Vista would mark a sort of PC gaming Renaissance.

Microsoft should give up

They are now working on something they have MISSED OUT ENTIRELY. Whatever they'll do can not, and WILL NOT match what other companies have been able to achieve. STEAM, hands down, dominates the battlefield of PC gaming now. What EA is doing with Dragon Age is not quite good, but still a decent system considering they're now improving their crappy old systems. Now Microsoft is going to look at their lame excuse named "Windows Live", which they've just left to rust for how many years? and up that? I cannot see how people with money for brains can even come up with a half respectable system. Like the last post that mentioned that caveman that said nobody plays on FPS's anymore *credit to the comment before me*, with people like that there is absolutely NO WAY they can come up with something that will last, unless of course they throw enough money at Valve's direction, which they'll do because they're the Prima Donna cavemen as they are.

Btw, I absolutely hate the xbox360 system: it's the most user unfriendly interface I've ever touched. If they decide to even release any shit for Windows that requires to be ran to play any of my games. I'm gonna install Windows XP back into my rig.

Steam?

Steam is such an intuitive program. It should be Microsoft's responsibility to create something like it. Oh well, where Micro$oft fails, other companies will pick of the slack.

Microsoft failed

Microsoft failed by charging for windows live on pc You don't charge on pc when most other games on pc are free to play multiplayer OMG big mistake microsoft... And yes what happened to the pc gaming revolution microsoft promised when they brought out Vista lol. Think they got sidetracked by there xbox creation and forgot that pc was still there and that fps rules on pc not console...
