Microsoft Not Dropping GFWL

Since Microsoft plans to include Xbox LIVE functionality in Windows 8, Neogamr approached them asking if this meant a possible end to the Games for Windows LIVE service, since there is some obvious overlap between the two. The reply was no, offering the perspective that Age of Empires Online and "Microsoft Flight" are targeted at "the core PC gamer." Here's word:

Answer is no, Microsoft continues to support the Games for Windows platform, but we are making new investments in Metro style games. For the core PC gamer we launched “Age of Empires Online” last year and “Microsoft Flight” on February 29.

When it comes to the living room, Xbox 360 was the number one selling connected TV device in 2011 and we have 40 million Xbox LIVE members. We are committed to delivering extraordinary entertainment experiences across devices in a uniquely connected way. Xbox LIVE on Windows 8 is a milestone in that journey. With the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, you’ll get a taste of some of the features we’re bringing with Xbox on Windows, but we’ll have more to share later this year as we get closer to launch.

GFWL....Thank god I only had to deal with it once with Relic's Dawn of War 2....What a clusterfuck getting that to run in multiplayer was...

GFWL should get the reward for most successful PIECE OF SHIT product to grace the PC.

Never get tired of seeing their vision for the PC platform. LOL marketing and all that but seriously it is pretty depressing even in that context.

It worked for Nintendo.


For about 3 years.

What, were you expecting that Microsoft own up to its failures? Never happen. Might as well expect EA to admit that they treat their customers like utter shit while we're at it.
