interview on PCGamesN
where Microsoft once again expresses their alleged
love for PC gamers, talking about Windows 10, remasters of older MS PC games,
and their Play Anywhere program. Mike Ybarra, president for Windows and Xbox
gaming, tells them they want to make Windows 10 "the best operating system for
gamers," talking about non-Win10 specific features like support for 21:9
resolution, SLI, and AMD Crossfire. Adam Isgreen is the creative director at
Microsoft Studios Publishing where they are working on an Age of Empires
remaster, and he tells them: "We want to treat PC like a first-class citizen."
It's hard not to be cynical about this, as they've hyped PC gamers with similar
raps in the past, but have never shown a lot of substantial results. And
frankly, saying you want to make Windows 10 the best gaming OS seems an
admission that it isn't already, and wanting to treat PC like a first-class
citizen suggests that it has gotten second-class treatment in the past.
