Valve on Games for Windows

Valve questions Microsoft's commitment to PC gaming on GamesIndustry.biz offers analysis of their Q&A with Valve's Doug Lombardi that question's whether Redmond's support for PC gaming is genuine, or an effort at marketing Vista:

"Right now it seems like it's part of the marketing push to help Vista," commented Doug Lombardi, marketing manager at Valve, in an exclusive interview for GamesIndustry.biz.

"To really back a platform is a sustained effort over years and years, so we'll see if in two years Microsoft is still spending money to put Games for Windows sections in retail, and having PR people preach that message that the PC isn't dying, itís actually bigger than all the consoles put together."

"You know, if it were to sign up for that, that's great. If it's going to use it to promote sales of Vista, that's really not good for the industry, it's good for Microsoft in the short term," offered Lombardi.
