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.

Microsoft love PC gamers.... but most MS new games don't work on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. These are not OS that made by other company (like OSX). These OS are not obsolete yet (like Windows XP/Vista). While almost all new games from others companies/sellers like EA (Origin), Ubisoft (Uplay), GoG, Humblebundle, Greenmangaming and STEAM (some games you buy from Steam even support MS Window(S) + Linux + Mac) can play games on PC with older (but still officially supported) Windows.

I still remember when I tried to download Gear of Wars 4 from Windows Store I can't because my Windows 10 version is not support!! WTF after gaming on PC for 30+ years I still need to deal with this?

Microsoft "want to treat PC like a first-class citizen". PC with Windows 7-8.1 definitely are some third world citizen from the eye of M$. Remaster a TWO DECADES old game is their way to say MS treat PC gamers well.

Making a big deal about support 21:9, SLI, Crossfire... really?? Are we in 2004??
