As a PC gamer myself, I think they should. I mean competition would be good for us and Microsoft should compete with Valve, because Valve may take over the PC gaming market.

Also Microsoft are making age of empires,Mechwarriors,Fable 3 and Microsoft flight for the PC and more games.

They're trying. They've expanded the GFWL platform's library a bit since the last time I saw it. Only time will tell how well they make the transition.

Really? They really need to work on Games for windows live. I mean the online gaming is fun, but the store is not so good compared to Steam.

Microsoft has published ONE game since 2007 for PC and that's Age of Empires Online.

The one before that was Gears of War from 2007... Laughing

Fable 3 FTW?

Um I don't feel strongly about it either way. It wouldn't affect me much as I'm not an avid pc gamer. But one thing I think Ms must do is actually get some more ips.

AoE Online eh? Might check this out, but I don't think my 2.8-5.4K/Bs dial-up will allow me to play this.

I don't really care because the only PC games I really play are old school or RTS games.

Seeing as how I don't own a Gaming PC...

No.

They should focus more on the 360 because that's the only thing I game on.I don't see why you posted this here.

Well, that and a DS.

Because it wouldn't benefit me in any way. Silly. Very Happy

Besides, like Aksys said, it wouldn't even benefit them that much anyways.

As again thats only your opinion, some people would like MS helping out on PC gaming, not everyone always plays on the 360.
