Microsoft to Target Windows 8 on PC Gaming
If you read our wish list for next year, you know that I’m wishing for a resurgence by PC gaming next year. It seems that Microsoft is thinking along the same lines as I am.
TechRadar has a source that tells them Microsoft is targeting the next version of Windows squarely on gaming. The unnamed source said,
Windows 8 will represent a real new push into PC gaming. Gaming will be a key component for the whole OS.
We knew MS was starting to look PC gaming’s way again, what with the announcement of Age of Empires Online, Fable 3 for PC, and an updated Flight Simulator. The big question is this: How will Microsoft plan to dethrone Steam from atop the PC gaming heap, especially with the failure of Games for Windows Live to reach a substantial number of gamers?
I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
