Anything that means developers stop integrating gamespy code into their games is a major plus for me. I find it laughable that you have to jump through so many hoops just to create a damn login account on most gamespy supported games.
PC games need a big shakeup.
Its getting bad when setting up IRQ and DMA settings for your soundcard and making sure you had enough base memory in DOS seems easy compared to the stuff you need to get games working reasonably today.
Give me an XBOX360 + mouse & keyboard, and i'd never use the PC for gaming again. Hopefully this is the first step in turning the home PC into a closed system like a console, sure it'll be more expensive, but stuff will just work. And tbh, my time is more valuable these days.
