Microsoft Fails PC Gamers?

Microsoft Fails PC Gamers on Daily Game (thanks Voodoo Extreme) offers some harsh criticism of Microsoft's Games for Windows initiative. Taking MS to task for Vista-only games, the shortcomings of the PC editions of Halo 2 and Shadowrun, and premium functionality that's free in existing applications, the article asks, with tongue-in-cheek, whether Redmond is trying to kill off PC gaming altogether. Turning to constructive criticism, the piece then offers several suggestions on how to address their complaints.

This is a gaming computer and I keep it that way.
You're in the minority there. Most PC gamers use their boxes for a lot more than just gaming.
But you bypass the topic. Microsoft PC Games and Game sales in general for MS. MS makes crap off their PC Game sales.
Yeah, but they make money on every PC sold instead of losing it like they do with XBox. And most people do run other MS software on their PC, and so MS makes even more money since that software is high profit stuff. The money they make from their games, which usually do make money, is just gravy since the platform itself makes them a lot of money already. The XBox sure as hell didn't get them that 50-something billion they've got sitting in the bank.
