Microsoft Promises Core First-Party Games Coming to PC

In some ways, Microsoft is playing catch-up to Sony. In recent years, Cross-Play games have propagated content across PlayStation 3, Vita, and, now, PS4. But "One Microsoft" isn't willing to sit by and squander the incredible audience of Windows. For PC gamers, Microsoft's newfound commitment to PC games certainly is exciting.

So I'm guessing PS4/PC best combo?

Snookies121381d ago (Edited 1381d ago )

You'd probably get the most out of your money with a setup like that. Though I do want an X1 at some point as well. I'd also love to pick up a Wii U when some of the bigger Nintendo games start coming out for it. :]

LonChaneyTV1381d ago (Edited 1381d ago )

Not at all keeping my hopes up for forza, halo, Ryse, Rare studios or any major hit success console exclusive to come to PC. I do see Microsoft well establishing an ecosystem with it. (like project spark and titanfall)

I liked the Xbox 360/PC combo i had for almost a decade, being able to share controllers between the two platforms was helpful.

I'm interested in PC/XB1 since i know Microsoft's contracts will weed out the selections they chose to bring over.

mewhy321380d ago

already have PS4 on preorder and a mid gaming rig. I'm set.

nukeitall1380d ago (Edited 1380d ago )

I'm going Xbox One for the multiplayer that has dedicated servers. I don't have a massive gaming rig, nor do I plan to have one so will settle with light gaming on my Surface Pro. My desktop can run Starcraft 2 and that is the only PC game I really care about, other than maybe C&C and some of the other Blizzard IPs.

I might upgrade to a Surface Pro 3 next year though.

Kleptic1380d ago

^serious request...can you please show a title that is available on Xbox one, ps4, and PC...that only has dedicated servers on xbox one?

guitarded771380d ago

If they were to bring over all XBOX exclusives to PC, that would seriously damage XBOX as a brand. They'd have to release the XBOX versions way ahead of the PC versions to avoid a fiasco.

FamilyGuy1380d ago

PS4 is getting a lot of the PC games, just not the MS ones (obviously) so I'm good with the PS4-WiiU combo. Nintendo games are exclusive that can't be found anywhere else so it's a no-brainer.

badz1491380d ago (Edited 1380d ago )

what is the logic behind this move, marketing wise? the Xbone is NOT getting the positive news or PR at this point and suddenly they are promising core games to come to PC too? don't they wanna sell the console??

But you'd be supporting Microsoft if you're buying their 1st party games on PC.

I thought that such actions were morally reprehensible? D:

TopDudeMan1381d ago

Morality is relative. Good games are universal.

rambi801381d ago (Edited 1381d ago )

no, paying for kinect without any proof that it improves the games i like is morally reprehensible.

Got no problems with the games. RROD past and compulsory kinect makes me stay away from ms hardware...for now

adorie1381d ago

I'd get Dead Rising 3 and Ryse if they came to PC. I was going to buy an Xbox One,but now I went from waiting a bit, to on the fence.

I won't rule it out, though.

Blackdeath_6631380d ago

if they are using games for windows live easily the worst fucking service on PC then the games wouldn't be worth buying i think they have terminated that service or planning to do so anyways. if the games are sold via steam or origin (as i assume titanfall will) then no MS don't get anything from you directly and don't tell me "well its their OS".

Kleptic1380d ago (Edited 1380d ago )

EDIT: oops...i didn't notice the part about MS publishing said game...

yeah, if you buy a PC game published by very much are 'supporting MS'...

SlapHappyJesus1381d ago

That's what I am looking at in time. Just waiting for a solid list of exclusives for PS4.

Autodidactdystopia1381d ago (Edited 1381d ago )

Yay that means I can finally play halo 3.

If they ever release it haha.

I quit playing at halo 2 with vista and dx10.

edit: ahh nope, they are just letting things be on pc too instead of jewing them only on the xbox.

Still maybe I can play halo 5 then ;)

FlyingFoxy1381d ago

If anything, Wii U and PC.. free online for both, plus if you get sick of the realistic games that's where the Wii U is fun, colourful instead of the many dull colours you get in the realistic ones.

PC will get nearly all the multiplats of both XboxOne and PS4, and run better.

Etseix1380d ago

I respect your opinion, tou i really recommend getting a PS4, unless of course you are not interested on SONY's exclusives, but then again, PS3's exclusives are some of the best games a hardcore gamer can have.

I'm planning on getting a Wii U once it gets more games, i'm not interested on most Nintendo's franchises, but whatever suits you up it's cool :)

AnotherProGamer1381d ago

I'm going for a WiiU/PS4/PC/3DS/Vita combo

Belking1381d ago

Either way it's still MS windows. The best combo will be pc and xbox since dx11 will be used on titles from both.

urwifeminder1380d ago

People underestimate DX11.

Spinal1380d ago

That's what I'll have in the end. My PC and a PS4 but I'll wait for the ps to have a larger library of exclusives. Right now is not the time to own one yet.

Welcome2Die1380d ago

If Halo alone comes to PC, the Xbone is rendered useless as a core gamer.
Thats why there hasn't been a Halo game on PC since 2(?)

Imagine having a PS3 with all the games its got and then a PC with Halo,Gears,Forza. Thats pretty much all you're ever gonna need as a core gamer.

nypifisel1380d ago

There's absolutely no reason at all to by an Xbox One then.

Nice i'm glad Titan fall comes to pc.

lets_go_gunners1381d ago

Really nice. Exclusivity is just awful.

Enemy1381d ago

What's the point in competition if all consoles have the same games?

CGI-Quality1381d ago

You couldn't have said this enough, brotha. Multiplatting everything is the most ridiculous notion gamers have EVER come up with!

Psychotica1380d ago

You mean like all DVD players all playing the same movies?

hellvaguy1380d ago

Steam recently they wont be doing any exclusive games, even with thier new OS and pc. They said it goes against thier business philosophy. They seem to be doing ok.

Erdrick1380d ago

true competition can only happen on an even playing field - we want the games to compete for our money, not the hardware it runs on.
