In a speech in Tokyo, covered by Develop (http://www.develop-online.net/news/37750/Next-generation-of-Windows-to-launch-2012), Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has announced that Windows 8 will be launched for PCs, tablets and smartphones next year, and has been designed with gaming in mind. According to a Techradar (http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming/microsoft-wants-windows-8-to-relaunch-pc-gaming-917416) source, ‚??Windows 8 will represent a real new push into PC gaming. Gaming will be a key component for the whole OS.‚??

Microsoft appear to have abandoned PC gaming in recent years. Even Sony had a stronger PC line-up than the software giant at last year‚??s E3 (http://www.pcgamer.com/2010/06/20/microsofts-shameful-e3-pc-showing/). Things have shifted recently, however, with the announcement of a PC version of Fable 3 (http://www.pcgamer.com/tag/fable-3/), a revamped Games for Windows Marketplace (http://www.pcgamer.com/tag/games-for-windows-marketplace/), and recent work on the upcoming Age of Empires Online (http://www.pcgamer.com/tag/age-of-empires-online/). If Microsoft are serious about returning to PC gaming, E3 2011 could represent quite a turnaround from last year‚??s conference. We‚??ll know for sure in LA in just a few weeks time.
