Microsoft Games Studio Manager Mike Ybarra has been checking out games lately, including Insomniac’s Sunset Overdrive and Platinum Games’ Scalebound, and today he shared some interesting information about them, also defending Windows gaming.
Ybarra also plays games on the PC so he will defend the platform which is awesome
I wonder if he did more work for the PC version of Ryse. Here's to hoping it isn't a straight up port, and they improved gameplay. It might be worth a buy once the price drops below $25.
Or them steam sales, 4.99$? Sold.
People cursing MS in 3,2,1 ... because nese site complain about MS for everything
Don't mind me. Just waiting for those complaints.
F*ck GFWL! OT: Happy now?
I was being facetious, to prove that this isn't a site with all Sony fanboys. 18 people agreed with henriquecopes. 9 disagreed. I think that's proof enough.
Yeah cuz in his pro-MS world, people on this site dont complain about Sony at all only MS. This is the problem with fanboyism, it makes you blind to the facts.
Yeah but it's not worth complaining about Sony. Just a warning. I used to have more bubbles.
or it could be because you comment off topic or troll and its nothing to do with sony fans ? just a guess looking at this completely off topic comment you just made.
@MRMagoo123 - I don't troll. Ever. It's just a warning. Check my comment history if you want.
What do you call this pointless whining? It isn't relevant to the topic. It proves no points or enhances the conversation. Might you be intentionally attempting to illicit a frustrated response from someone?
@Biggest - It's 'warning', not 'whining'. And no, that would be trolling. See my earlier comment. I was simply adding to someone else's comment. Not sure why people are getting upset, but that's their issue not mine. Anyway this is my last bubble so I'll just say sorry for hurting anyone's feelings. Didn't realise people around here are so sensitive.
RYSE has the worst graphics ever I mean E.T. on ATARI looks more impressive.
*throws a biscuit on the floor*
I dunno if that little blurb from Ybarra would technically be called defending Pc. He just said that he "wouldnt have laughed him out of the room" if Star Citizen was pitched for Windows gaming.
"windows gaming is real"
Lol, Im done with waiting on MS to start loving PC again. They can talk all they want, but PC gaming is still an afterthought to them. MS skips PC at every turn and there is nothing on the horizon to say any different.
@SteamPowered: DX12 is proof enough that they are working to improve PS gaming. The don't need to put the Xbox exclusive on PC to help PC gaming. Things like DX12 will hell developers for PC deliver much better games.
Thanks chief, got it fixed up. +Helpful
Glad to see that those guys are involved in some exclusives games for xbox one. Ryse was a gfx killer.
I have it on right now because I'm testing out the 7.1 surround, and I had forgotten just how good it looks. Cracking game IMO, even if my opinion in scientifically proven to be false.
Well, that being said. Is there any hope that Microsoft will EVER get back into PC gaming?
Nope, no hope at all. MS talks a lot, but says very little when it comes to PC gaming.
There is hope I think, though hope is perhaps not the right word as I don't know if PC gamers want them. I know they say it all the time without any results, but PC gaming is on the rise. There is money to be made, and it is a great test bed for consoles too. We'll see though. I certainly wouldn't put money on it.
I don't think micro really cares too much about PC gaming, its alot of investment that needs to be made with little return given that pc games sell for less and sell significantly less copies than consoles, plus with consoles they make money off the online space. Windows is a afterthought but I can't really blame them because Xbox is their priority because they own that platform which means they are obligated to do whatever it takes to make it successful.
It sounds to me like Phil Spencer does care about PC gaming, so I suspect Halo: MCC is coming sooner or later with more to come. Phil Spencer just seems like a gamer all around that makes decision that is good for gaming overall, despite it not being so good for Xbox. We will see!
They have now allowed third party studios to produce there ips on PC instead of doing them. Look at Rise of nations HD and Age Of Mythology HD by skybox studio whoa re a 3rd party using the license which is still owned by MS so they get a little piece of the pie but don't actually make the games. This is probably the future for MS.
Possibly - Dx12 and the supposed 'cross platform compatibility' that's coming should all be just as beneficial for the PC as the console. It might not necessarily mean MS will port across all of their exclusives, but by making it easier for other dev's, games that have traditionally been console only might make the jump, and vice versa. If anything I'd imagine both game markets would benefit from this.
Oh God I hope not. I still have a bad taste in my mouth when Microsoft to charge PC Gamers to play online with their Games for Windows platform.
What do you think DX12 is all about? In case you don't know it's for making games on PC much more easy.
I think you will see MS on PC. I think when DX12 comes around so will the games. Probably older ones at first, plus it will also help Windows OS sales aswell.
PC is much bigger than Microsoft, at one time PC was Microsoft.
Windows gaming is real, but they are already profitable and have been since pretty much PC have been around. Xbox is the Microsoft gaming baby, it will always come first.
Great news!!! can't wait Great gaming ahead for the X1!
I always groan whenever I see an Xbox Headline for a story on Dualshockers. No disrespect to you Abriel, the community there is just so bias :/ Good mods doe. On topic: Good news. Let the guys work his magic.
Game over man, Game over!
Reclaim the talent MS
MS should stay out PC gaming market. They've done enough damage to gaming as a whole.
Please spidey stop.
Xbox one , 900p and 1080p. PC gaming depending on your budget 1080p, 1440,p 1600p, 4k, etc.... and about a million other benefits. PC and PS4 gaming seems to be the way to go this "generation"
Resolution, blah, blah, blah. The one "to go with" is the one that has your friends, games, and services that appeal to you. Or get em all if u can.
Yup! Can't remember anyone ever making a decision to buy games based on resolution or even frame rate! The vast majority it is, what game is available and are they fun! So who here makes game purchases based on resolution or frame rate?
Resolution aside (and let's be honest. . . It matters), you can also enjoy most of the benefits of services similar/better than Xbox Live/PS+ without paying a dime.
I expected Geralt of Rivia to be smarter....
If 1080/1440/4k/8k 120fps matters Forget the ps4 please.
i think the ps4 exclusives and older ps exclusives are better than the selection of xbox console exclusive games.
lol 4k even high end pcs have trouble with that, 4k is to expensive right now
Amen to that, if you got a PC gaming system + PS4, you are set.
Great news indeed. Really liked RYSE so I can't wait for what s coming next. Keep up the good work Microsoft.
Same here.. Loved ryse. If MS can't get the ryse ip they'll just create a new team and task them with creating a similar ip. They could also pick up a few good hands from crytek. Phil spencer likes ryse and his comments on twitter seem promising. We will either get a sequel to ryse or some other new ip. I'm happy to hear this guy is working on more xbx exclusives. MS is steadily building&expanding their inhouse teams.
Good to here! Ryse was a great game and graphics are only going to get better.
Maybe this time he can get the frame rate over 20fps! Or find a game that plays as good as it looks!
Have you even played ryse? What does it matter to you what fps his next game will run at? Its going to be another xbx exclusive and going by your previous comments you hate xbx but you are here again commenting on its games..dude give it a rest.
Come on ryse isn't that good. I finished it in one sitting. Nearly turned it off in the boring ass forest level with the aqueduct in it. I now have the copy up on ebay.
"jnemesh + 1d 1h ago I didn't buy an X1 or the controller" How are you even gonna comment on something you don't have?? Ryse plays fine on my system I never saw and lag in the game...
I can't tell if people are just being stupid over Microsoft or butthurt over the talent going to them. Pick one.
