Microsoft says that it has not done a very good job of supporting the PC games sector, telling MCV that it needs to "step up" on Windows gaming. In a bid to offer "leadership" in the space, it plans to deliver three marquee titles: Fable III, Age of Empires Online and Microsoft Flight.
“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 Games Studios’ general manager Dave Luehmann told MCV in an interview.
“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. And in some ways we are doing that and in other ways we are not. So we need to step up.”
Luehmann added that these three titles represent a real investment on the Windows platform and that it "was only the beginning." Of course, Microsoft has said this before, promising much for PC gamers and delivering little. Another caveat for some PC gamers is that all three of these titles will support Games For Windows - Live..
