MS on PC Gaming

There's an 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.

Well, at least they are honest about treating us like lepers ever since 2001. To see reason is the first step on the path to enlightenment. Now deeds must follow just like all these years before when they said similar stuff but I'm not getting my hopes up. DirectX 12 was a fad and there is absolutely nothing PC-exclusive that MS is doing that is really playing to the strengths of our beloved PCMR platform.

Lame remasters of ancient classics? Seriously, MS? Also, Freelancer/Starlancer are still MIA from GOG. Even the most simple stuff like releasing their classic back catalogue on modern digital platforms is too hard for these clowns.

Instead they are in full on XboneX hype mode, still desperately trying to win a console war which they have lost all these years back at E3 2014 or whenever they had that catastrophic reveal of an always online Xbone with forced Kinect, spycam, eavesdropping and all that crap.

OK, they have brought all these spying features to PCs via Windows 10 in the meantime so maybe that is what they mean by "love for PC gamers". We're supposed to be grateful that they have now delivered to us the features that were supposed to be in the original Xbone design.
