* MS vows to do better on PC gaming

PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
Microsoft is admitting openly that they have failed to invest resources in PC gaming and hurt it as a result, and vowing to do better.

Here's a hint, guys: Crimson Skies 2. A *REAL* Crimson Skies game, not the Xbox pseudoaction thing. Oh, and put Mechwarrior 5 back into production, you could do amazing things with today's hardware.

There's two canceled projects, right off the top of my head, that should never have been abandoned.

?It?s our biggest ever investment in Windows gaming,? said product manager Kelly Stanmore. ?The Windows business is down 10 per cent year-on-year and we?ve lost shelves of space. We?re killing off that community without the retail support.?

Microsoft has neglected PC gamers as it pushed forward with Xbox, but the advent of 360 will mark a defining moment for its gaming ambitions.

?We?re putting the ?game? back in Windows,? explained group manager Chris Donohue. ?We?re over the hump with Xbox 360 so now ready to build Windows as a platform.?
We'll see if you mean it.
