Microsoft only make a profit from PC games they have published. Any other PC game they get nothing.
It's like Cuphead on Steam the developers are self publishing it so Microsoft don't get a damn thing.
This is why I always say Microsoft do not own the PC platform like they do the Xbox.
We use their OS to play PC games on but Microsoft don't make any profits from PC games unless they are the publ...
The devs are self publishing the game on Steam. Microsoft have nothing to do with it there. The devs will get 70% of the profits after Valve take their 30% cut.
It should sell pretty sell. I know a few people that have been looking forward to Cuphead for quite a while.
I've had the game on my Steam wishlist for several months now. It's looking like a great game.
The first day was closed the 2nd day and all weekend was open beta where anyone could play.
I think a lot of PC gamers are looking for something more than an arena shooter like LawBreakers now. I had access for awhile but never played it as i was playing other games that suited me better.
I think more tactical and slower paced games like PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds, which is doing amazingly on PC, is the way forwards on PC anyway.
He said PC on N4G. They don't like that here with N4G being a console centric website.
I can't wait to play it on PC either. Will be preordering it end of this week :)
True. Microsoft and Sony both skipped a generation. Most PC gamers are perfectly fine with 1080p or 2k at 60fps. The consoles should have aimed at a consistent 1080p/60fps machines not 4k.
I think only 5% max of PC gamers have a 4k PC that can do that consistently.
They are competing against a 4k PC that doesn't exist in most PC gamers homes. It will happen in the near future but not yet.
Does every single console gamer have a 4k TV...
The whole point of games is for them to be fun. If it isn't fun it isn't serving it's purpose and is a valid excuse for a refund.
Game haven't learned a damn thing since they went into administration the last time.
Same old business practices that got them into trouble the first time around.
It would be better if they concentrated on their online store and not their retail stores as they are severely overpriced.

Never buy AAA games directly from steam (or Origin and Uplay). Use any other 3rd party digital store to get them cheaper like cdkeys.com, instant-gaming.com or greenmangaming.com. It's only the initial release where games are the same price as the consoles on steam.
Over time games do become really cheap on steam in their spring, summer, fall and xmas sales.
I've been with steam since the beginning nearly 14 years ago. I've acquired nearly 13...
It's been coming to PC from the beginning and on steam as well as the devs are self publishing the game on PC.
Microsoft have nothing to do with the game on PC.
I'll definitely be getting the game on PC when it's released. Can't wait :)
PC gamers don't use Xbox Live. We have Steam, GoG, Uplay, Origin etc. All free stores and launchers to play our games on, online or offline.
Even though it comes built into Windows 10 it's hardly used by anyone but the most fanatical Microsoft fanboy on PC.
PC gamers are on entirely different path than what Microsoft wants us to be on. Windows Store is an abject failure and should be used for small apps only not full blown games on PC.
Don't bother this is a console only website and PC gamers are kept muted along with the PC gaming news.
Hence your downvotes just for mentioning PC. I'll probably get some downvotes too :)
I know I'm feeding the troll but never include PC with the Xbox Live numbers. We don't pay for it we hardly ever use it on PC.
Microsoft will never be able to introduce paid subscription as they aren't the leading company on PC (no one owns PC) and never will be again. Valve has more influence on PC with steam and GoG is close behind.
They tried to charge PC gamers for Xbox Live before with G4WL and failed. They ...
No it's not. Microsoft only profit from games sold on PC platform if they publish them like all other devs/publishers on the platform. If they don't they don't get a damn thing. On Xbox they own the platform and profit from all games sold on it.
Microsoft supply the OS on PC and that's it. They don't sell the hardware and only publish a limited number of games software on PC.
No one owns PC platform.
Actually it's not.
Many PC gamers myself included haven't touched the Windows Store (as we've uninstalled it) for the so-called Xbox exclusives as they are ridiculously priced and tied to the horrendous Windows Store with it's severely limiting UWP crap.
Microsoft are losing on both fronts, Xbox and PC.
We thought G4WL was bad well the Windows Store is worse.
No you won't. If Microsoft doesn't own the game it's up to the developer or publisher to release that PC game on the Xbox platform not Microsofts.
MS have no say in what PC exclusives go to Xbox. They have about the same influence to get PS exclusive games to Xbox as they do with PC.
MS developed Xbox to compete with PC and Playstation. Just because MS supply the OS for PC platform does not mean they own the platform. Far from it. The only pro...
Quite a lot of people just aren't buying Denuvo games now until it's removed. I wouldn't say that was a win at all. Publishers are just alienating potential customers from buying their games. Guilt before proven innocent is not the way to go.
More effort and money goes into stopping piracy than optimising the games on PC. It's a sad state of affairs. No wonder we get piss poor ports.
Sales have not increase due to Denuvo. In most cases the...
It's a ghost town for PC game articles as the console fanboys don't want us here as it's a console fanboys circle jerk.
I come back now and again but it's getting much worse for PC on here so why should I come here and read about a few idiots arguing about which console has better fps or resolution when most of the time there is no difference.
I'll correct someone on articles who try to spread BS about PC platform but that's about ...
Microsoft aren't the publisher for Ashen, The Last Night and a few other games that was shown on Xbox conference coming to PC so they don't get anything from PC gamers. MS only gets a cut from PC games if they publish the games. They aren't that important in the grand scheme of things on PC platform any more like they used to be 15+ years ago but they gave that up to be a console manufacturer.
They have limited influence on PC now and 9...
You have no clue about PC gaming do you? Your diatribe above seems to confirm that.
Once you pay the initial cost for the PC everything else is cheaper. Cheaper games, no online subscriptions, no upgrading every year due to lower console tech etc.
I haven't upgraded for a few years now as I didn't need to but I'm not trying to game at 4K/60fps as it's not essential for playing games. That's more a vanity project for the PC enthusiasts ...
Just to annoy you further I'll be getting it on PC on steam and not Windows Store. How do you like them apples? :P
Get a life it's just a game coming to PC and Xbox. Deal with it! :D
