Default Microsoft Games Studio Suck a di*k

Peter Zetterberg, business development manager for MGS Europe, has told GI that simultaneous releases for PC and Xbox 360 would be a bit of a disaster for the firm.

“On a global scale the Windows Vista business is as important as our Xbox 360 business. But in Germany for example, we want more gamers to buy our Xbox 360,” he said in an interview published today.

“If we launch a game that is on 360 and PC simultaneously, we basically shoot ourselves in the foot by allowing the German market to choose to play the PC version – because they are more likely to buy that than spend their money on the Xbox 360.”

“If we launched a Halo game on PC and 360 in Germany simultaneously, 80 per cent of sales would be on the PC,” he added.


As we can see Microsoft have gamers in deep ass just money are important.

In Germany it is actually - so they're trying to push the 360 there - by delaying PC ports or not releasing them at all.

No surprise, but it is somewhat of a surprise to see him just come out and say it so bluntly, and not shift the blame to an aspect of the PC outside of their control, such as saying "If we release it on the PC then it will be pirated too easily!".

Unfortunately as MS is publishing it, this means Gears 2 will probably not be coming to the PC anytime soon.

It should not surprise anyone that the controlled and microtransaction-friendly console system is the preffered gaming platform by MS.

Delaying PC ports gets more US and EU gamers to go console.

not only in Germany, in most Europe it is, well maybe except UK.

computer hardware might cost more then console, but when every console game cost twice as much (sometimes more) then a PC game, it equals out in the end.

and you get better deal with PC, does more then just games, better controls and image quality.

If you let a gamer choose between a PC version and a 360 version, gamer will choose PC version: cheaper, full control and customization options, free multiplayer... Microsoft knows it so there you have the reason for the delay. As many of you have pointed, no big surprises here

this is the main reason why so many Multiplatform games get delayed, MS also has strong influence with other Developers. This virus is spreading.
