It must be taxing that Microsoft has two platforms to work with Windows and Xbox.

Hey, MontyQ. I'm one of the two people you speak of. I installed Win 8 on my spare SSD in my PC gaming rig when Windows 8 first launched, you know, just to try it out.I run Win7 on my main SSD, but Win8 is still there on my second drive,because,well,I'll be damned if I can find the button to remove it! :)

Really though, more BS from MS to bump up poor sales of a tablet designed OS, I think.

NimblePlay1759d ago

I hope this is not the same thing with crysis 1, where people with high end rigs back in 2007 where force to jump from xp to vista so they could play at the highest setting possible. This is pure BS from MS.

JsonHenry1759d ago

We were not "forced" exactly. There was a work around the same week it launched to allow for DX10 on XP.

That is funny as the original crysis does not even work on windows 8 now. So people jumped hoops for crytek but they are not willing to make a simple patch for windows 8.

I bought this game a few weeks ago, it did not work and had to pirate it just so I could play. You may judge me for pirating the game but if I buy a game without warning it may not work then screw them.

I played crysis on windows 8 so you sure it dont work without changing any settings

Stsonic1759d ago (Edited 1759d ago )

It works for some people. I try'd all the fixes and none worked for me.

LAWSON721759d ago (Edited 1759d ago )

I am confused a pirated copy worked but the steam version(?) didnt?

Stsonic1759d ago

Yes you are correct almost apart from I bought the game from origin.

im still not getting w8 lol

MizTv1759d ago

I agree
From what I hear w8 SucksAss

aliengmr1759d ago

As far as running games, it does that really well, aside from the minor "new OS" problems.

That being said, it just feels wrong and cheap as desktop OS. It actually annoyed me so much that I went back to 7.

If you really don't care about the OS and just want to run games well, Win8 is a good OS.

sAVAge_bEaST1759d ago (Edited 1759d ago )

Don't. My girl just got a new laptop, with windows 8-- most retarded OS I have ever used,.. I[m putting 7 on it.

SnakeCQC1759d ago

my dad got a laptop with it too it was hilarious watching him try to work everything out lmao

Thehyph1759d ago

Yup. I bought my mom a new laptop for Christmas and she couldn't figure it out. This might seem normal to some people except that my mom had been using personal computers since before I existed, and I am 27 years of age.
Gotta love how metro was supposed to be the Microsoft version of iOS.... not even close

sAVAge_bEaST1759d ago (Edited 1759d ago )


Yes, they were trying to copy iOS, and failed, miserably.

The thing is iOS is on iphones and ipads, Macbooks use OSx. -Micro$oft went full retard , using it on both tablets, and laptops -with no touch screen.

SnakeCQC1759d ago

well it seems to be the curse of ms one good os then a cataclysmically bad one and then a good one and so on

My dad's computer has windows 8 and whenever I have to fix some problem (very minor problems) I rage hardcore because it's so damn difficult to find anything. Took me forever to figure out how to get to the desktop which didn't help at all once I got there because there was no start menu. I don't know what monkey thought it was a good, edgy idea to get rid of it but Microsoft needs to get rid of HIM. Microsoft has a track record of releasing a good windows OS then a completely CRAPTASTIC one, then a good one again.

LiarasBoobs1759d ago

Sure, but Windows runs better on Windows 7 than Windows 8.

impet251759d ago

One game does not justify an upgrade definately not getting w8 when I'm sure it will run just fine on my w7 rig.
