Default Re: Microsoft Reinvesting in PC Platform (Again)

Blizzard and Valve are the only things that Microsoft have going for them and quite frankly, I'm surprised to see that they haven't bought them out (or at least tried to).

I can only assume that GFWL was supposed to be M$'s answer to steam but failed miserably and is at this point just a thorn in the side of PC gamers who get MS games.

I wonder how much of MS's gaming revenue comes from Steam and WOW?

I mean come on. Remedy works on this amazing engine that was specifically targeted at high end enthusiast PCs only for it to be butchered to work on a console at 30 fps.
They didn't "butcher" anything. It's a 5 year old game engine. It looks just as good, if not better than it did back at E3 08 when they were showing it off using the havok physics and quad core CPU processing.
