MS's PC Gaming Disregard to Continue

Shacknews has a list of 15 exclusives coming to Xbox One over the first year of Microsoft's upcoming new console. They also have word from Matt Booty, general manager of Redmond Game Studios and Platforms, that as far as those platforms go, the PC will not be receiving any more attention from them than it's been getting lately, which isn't much. He tried to explain to them they would offer Windows 8 gamers a range of experiences "from very, very casual games, like our very much improved and reimagined Solitaire, all the way to graphically complicated games like The Harvest." They called him on this, noting that as a port of a Windows Phone game, The Harvest was not exactly AAA material, and when they asked if Microsoft's first-party games for Windows 8 were lower-end, he didn't deny it: "We're talking about console games, but there could be some franchises that also end up with a PC game," Booty told them. "When I think about more connected experiences across those platforms, it's things that show up within that family of devices where we've got Xbox Live, like Windows Phone and Windows 8," and "not what you might consider a more traditional desktop PC game."
