Having received much criticism over its lack of support for the PC and the Games for Windows Live service; Microsoft has hit back says; “We’re putting some real investment and big IPs behind the Windows platform. We’ve spoken of the first three, Fable III, Age of Empires Online and Microsoft Flight. However we’re not going to stop there.”
“There’s been a fair bit of criticism aimed at Microsoft that we were spending a lot of our focus on console, and we need to be putting resources behind PC as well,” Microsoft Games Studios’ gm Dave Luehmann told MCV. “Other companies should look to Microsoft for leadership, but I’m not sure they do. It’s our job to lead the way on PC. And in some ways we’re doing that and in other ways we’re not. So we need to step up.
