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.
