Microsoft Restates PC Gaming Commitment

Every year or two we get word from Microsoft about a recommitment to PC gaming. We have another of those today in an interview on PCGamesN with Jason Beaumont, program manager of Xbox Game Pass, Matt Booty, head of Xbox Game Studios, and Kareem Choudhry, corporate vice president of Project xCloud, discussing the PC and the rebranding of Xbox. Saying this is a follow through on one of those previous recommitments from back in 2017, the conversation discusses Microsoft's vision of where the PC fits into their gaming plans. Here's a bit:
Providing PC gamers with a great experience is important to the future of gaming at Microsoft. When Phil talks about playing the games you want, on the devices you want, with the people you want, that mission naturally extends our work to PC. One thing we heard from our Xbox Game Pass customers was that they also played on PC.

We also heard from a lot of PC gamers that they wanted something like Xbox Game Pass that we have on console, but for PC games. Listening to gamers meant we could focus our work on Xbox Game Pass for PC (beta) and form a close partnership with PC developers and gamers to create an experience uniquely tailored to them.

Beyond Xbox Game Pass, we also continue to support people playing together, regardless of their preferred platform, through cross-platform and cross-network play. In addition, we’ve made Xbox Game Studios titles available on Steam and also support Win32 games on Windows 10, so no matter where you play on PC, the games you want to play are available to you. All of these investments go back to that core mission Phil laid out.

"We got to keep these PC guys paying until our next console comes out..... then we can dump them again for a few years ."
"I know, make a statement about our commitment to PC gaming...."


To be fair, the PC game pass from them is a pretty good deal - but only if you are interested in single player stuff . A play through & out basically.for me.

Play through some games you normally wouldn't pay for and whatever...but that's about it.
