Microsoft Will Not Bring AAA-Class Xbox One Games to PCs.

Anton Shilov: Microsoft Corp. clearly dreams of integrating all of its platforms into the world’s most powerful ecosystem ever created and ensure some level of interoperability between all of them. Ideally, people should be able to consume content and applications on all types of hardware. However, when it comes to AAA games for Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles, they are something that PC gamers are not going to get.

Breaking news, Sony exclusives are not coming to PC, and Nintendo exclusives are not coming to ps4

eh I know what you are trying to say, but you gotta remember there were games that Microsoft considered exclusives that came to PC.
Alan Wake
Splinter Cell: Conviction
Gears of War
Fable

That's just to name some, though aren't all those pretty much from third parties/second parties devs that just have close relation with MS?

While this sounds like a bad thing it does give me hope that they've completely given up on games for windows live. Surely no developer, with the exception of Namco, is dumb enough to support GFWL when MS won't even do it.

@Scubba: Their latest games are actually all steamworks: From Iron Brigade to Mark of the Ninja.

pc gamers want M$ to pull their hands away from the platform for good.

aside Windows, HARDLY anyone thinks of M$ when gaming on pc!

Silly me for buying Windows 8 for my PC (got it cheap but it was still bought). Microsoft doesn't even support the dam OS. Never again. Future releases I'm download and installing a cracked version.

AAA exclusives may not be coming to the PC but maybe AA will

DeadlyFire1544d ago

It will happen one day when the Cloud platforms open up and start growing when bandwidth is multiplied. Since on the cloud they only need to code for one platform. They could release the game for Phones, SmartTVs, Consoles, and PCs in the future. Its just a matter of time.

Consoles will have their exclusives and exclusive cloud networks, but PCs can tap into their cloud networks and share the same game if the developers really pushed for it. Still though its awhile before that bandwidth makes it through to all of us.

Why Ms should put all there AAA exclusives on PC? They will keep them all on the xbox one for their gamers to enjoy.

ZeroX98761544d ago

dont forget that windows is their platform as well.

SonyPS41544d ago

As much as I'd love to play them on PC, there would be less reason for people to buy the One if they did port them. MS made a smart business decision.

The_KELRaTH1544d ago

Which is exactly how I got into PS3 gaming. PC offers a wide choice of game genres but there were/are some fantastic PS3 exclusives so I ended up playing both.

Raf1k11544d ago

This I agree with. Unfortunately MS have almost completely turned me off getting an XOne. I don't want to have to put up with MS's nonsense on the new console.

I might be able to stomach having to pay to play online so if they change their stance on the used games I think I'll buy it.

elhebbo161544d ago

I remember a time when microsoft cared for PC, back in the age of empire days.

Narutone661544d ago

Yes, I remember Ensemble Studio, Age of Mythology. Too bad it was close down by MS.

The_KELRaTH1544d ago

MS, like so many big publishers buy up then just throw away great studios - loved games like Crimson Skies, Rallisport Challenge

LightofDarkness1544d ago (Edited 1544d ago )

Oh no, because everyone bought Halo and Fable when they came to PC! How will we ever go on without our hand-me-down MS console exclusives that are clearly better enjoyed on their intended platform?

Yeah, this isn't going to affect PC gamers too much, really. We haven't depended on MS first party PC support since the 90s.
