Windows 7 will be "great for games"

GI.Biz writes: "Microsoft's VP of the Interactive Entertainment Business for the EMEA region, Chris Lewis, has told GamesIndustry.biz that the corporation's next major PC operating system, Windows 7, will be a positive step over an above Vista with respect to gaming.

"Windows 7 will be great for games, undoubtedly," he said. "It's all good news - it's even more robust, it's quicker relatively, and the early testing cycles are proving very promising overall."

One of my housemates has Vista 64-bit, and he can't even play Diablo II properly on it. He hates it because most of his old games don't work properly in one way or another...

Well it can't be any worse than vista. However you newer know about Microsoft.

But atleast when looking the previews of windows seven, it does seem far more fitting for gaming than vista because its a lot lighter and less ram hungry.

thereapersson: It's his own fault for installing a 64bit OS. Not Vista's fault, he'd have similar trouble with XP x64.

Windows 7 is like Vista, but much better. It's what Vista should have been for sure, it's fast and it's good. I game on my Windows 7 machine just fine. In fact, I prefer it, I haven't booted out of Windows 7 for more than a few mins after I installed the beta. And this is coming from someone who has XP, Vista (x64) and Windows 7 (beta 7000/32bit) installed on the same machine.

I know it will be, that's y I'm not getting it. If M$ says its good, its obviously not. M$ said Vista was faster than XP!, they took people to a place and showed them and dam it was true! the prob was that those comp had 2GB of ram! and barely nothing on its HDD!! GJ M$!

Perhaps Windows Live will finally be launched with Windows 7 and that is what this is hinting at launching. Windows 7 Live client + Halo 3 PC. Right?

I'm getting a MAC soon.

KarIostomy3218d ago (Edited 3218d ago )

who proclaim that they will not get windows 7 because it's from the evil MS!
To all those people i say: GET A MAC.

Once they have a MAC they will quickly realise that, despite all its faults, MS is in fact the platform for gamers, while mac is good for.... uh..uhm....yeah... what is it good for again?

So, is it quicker or isn't it?
What does "quicker relatively" mean?

"over an above"
*SIGH*
