    Microsoft: Jason, over here you will do this, this and that, they MS way.
    Jason: But... you hired me because you wanted my years of expertise at Valve to push Microsoft into the PC gaming scene.
    Microsoft: Yeah, well, we do, but so long as you do things our way.

    Microsoft is full of shit. Release the fucking Forza on PC then. Except first Halo none of the other 5-6 Halo games got a PC release.
    Their focus lately have been on microstransactions sadly and even if they do invest into some PC games its gonna be some grind games with paywalls.

    Ah, back in the day Microsoft Studios published good games. If only they could get back to that.

    You mean, Ensemble Studios made all the good games for MS and was thanked in return with it's destruction?

    So far Microsoft produced only three good PC games.

    Solitaire, Minesweeper and Hover!

    When they talk about more focus on PC they don't mean their big console games coming over. They want you to own both a Windows PC and an Xbox One, not get everything from one platform.

    Why is this such a big issue? Pretty much every modern laptop and a phone/tablet got a webcam or a frontfacing camera.
    Every phonecall and text message I make is recorded and saved for a couple of years, every mail i sent and recieved over Gmail is saved on Googles servers.
    Theres bunch of other things worth panicking about if youre gonna go all paranoid and you worry about Microsoft employees listening to you wanking infront of the TV. C'mon bro.

    a fairly substantial at that, microsoft had a bunch of very talented folks under their wings at one time, and was basically the only publisher actually doing strategy games. but just like EA, microsoft simply didn't understand what they got.

    Jokes aside, Microsoft IS PC. Windows and DirectX. Microsoft being beaten on console field, retreating to PC, MIGHT drastically improve the situation. Too bad it's probably about mind- numbing bullshit like new DRM platform, Windows Appstore, etc...

    To be honest, I expect the worst. Watch it: current CEO is Indian. Never trust dark- skinned people who are able to levitate.

    I bet you didn't give a shit about CIA backdoors in Windows 98. When you were basically drowning in good games made for this system.
