Denuvo is also the reason I haven't bought the game yet. It may stop piracy but it also puts off legitimate customers from buying the game too. The last few Denuvo games have run like crap on my PC so I've stopped buying any game with Denuvo DRM from now on. Just another lost sale due to DRM.
And yet all their first party games are EXCLUSIVE to Windows Store on Windows 10 for PC.
You can't buy them any where else other than Windows Store at an inflated price for a digital PC game.
I've already decided to never use Windows Store so that's one customer down for MS :)
For Microsoft to charge PC gamers for Live we have to use it in the first place. We aren't.
As a PC gamer I will never use anything Xbox related from MS and that includes Windows Store.
I have Steam, GoG, Origin, Uplay etc and they are all free to use.
If they start charging for Live on PC it will be the death of Microsoft on their own platform.
I never wanted or needed MS to come ba...
Really? A friend of mine's Windows 7 laptop was left unattended and he came back a couple of hours later with Windows 10 installed without his say so.
This is what Microsoft do. They force their way into people computers and lives whether they like it or not.
Someone in US has already won a court case against MS doing exactly what you say they haven't done.
People really need to wake up and take off those rose tinted glasses to ...
Massive isn't an "untested developer with limited experience" they were a great PC only developer a few years ago creating some amazing RTS games.
The Division isn't what they normally develop and it shows.
They've just taken the Ubisoft game developing formula and added it to The Division with pretty poor results. I blame Ubisoft more than Massive for this failure.
It's fine to experiment and try something dif...
I'll be waiting for your 100% irrefutable proof that all keys on G2A are stolen.
If you can't prove a damn thing, STFU!
I'm getting the game on PC next week (7th July) on Steam.
I will also be getting Cuphead and Below on Steam as well when released unless they are on GoG too.
I don't care about exclusives as long as developers respect each platforms strengths and weaknesses and release the best version for each platform.
And you'll be taking your debt and converting to Euro if you vote for independence and join the EU after a few years.
It's your choice but I don't see rejoining the EU as being independent.
Nothing is going to happen till 2-3 years after Article 50 is started and we officially leave the EU.
We are still under EU law till then and nothing will change.
The financial markets plummeted as they are scared of change and wanted to cash in on the volatility of the situation. They are parasites feeding off the vulnerable citizens of the UK or any other country that wants change.
I was going to vote Remain a couple of days before the referendum but then Juncker opened his big mouth about Cameron getting what he wanted and wouldn't be getting anything else from EU in the form of reforms.
That was the turning point for me as I knew there was never going to be any reforms in the EU so I voted to Leave.
I'm 39 and working class, not a racist or bigot. Just wanted my country back and be able to manage immigration ourselves and ...
Does anyone? If there's no numbers from Microsoft shouting it from the rooftops it means they didn't sell well at all. Just like when they don't announce any sales numbers for Xbox One.
No arrogant PR person from MS announcing sales numbers means the sales were shit so they are trying to save face and change the subject to XLive numbers instead.
With the prices they charge on Windows Store for subpar Xbox ports they have a long way to go.
Like I've said before I won't be buying anything from their store so it might as well not exist for me and many other PC gamers.
Using UWP is just shooting themselves in both feet and then jumping off a cliff just to make sure :)
I'm tired of Microsoft thinking they can just come back after 10+ years away from PC platform and try t...
I'm a PC gamer with Windows 10 and I've opened the Store once but I will never use it to buy games with.
I don't care what Xbox exclusive games they bring to PC on Windows Store they are still console ports with poor optimisation and limited technical settings that PC gamers are used to.
Plus the price on the Store is much higher than what we pay for digital games on PC and there is no where else to buy them from unlike the other stores like U...
You aren't getting any PC exclusives. Microsoft doesn't have any say on any PC games that's up to the PC developers/publishers.
Over the years Microsoft have published very few PC games as they are a console manufacturer and publisher now.
No one has said Steam is coming to Xbox. They might be making a deal for Xbox exclusives to come to Steam but neither Valve nor Microsoft have any power over PC games on Steam.
Steam is a store fro...
I don't see the PC platform as a rival to the consoles. They are 2 distinct systems and demographics.
Consoles are a static and non-upgradable closed gaming platform and the PC is an ever changing open platform with far greater multimedia functionality not just for gaming purposes.
It was Microsoft that brought the PC platform into the fray to compete against consoles when they brought out the Xbox and stole quite a few PC exclusives i.e. Halo, Alan W...
Ori and the blind forest, Cuphead, We happy few, Recore and Scalebound are not 1st party games.
Cuphead and We Happy Few isn't being published by Microsoft either.
I backed We Happy Few on kickstarter so I already have access to the pre alpha on steam and I will be getting Cuphead on steam as well.
The games above have nothing to do with Microsoft. They only have a say on 1st party games and that is p...
Hehe how little you know. Most PC gamers hate Microsoft with a passion like myself. We have a much longer history with Microsoft than Xbox gamers and know how they operate and it isn't good.
We ain't being converted to Xbox at all.
Microsoft have already lost the PC platform to Steam, GoG, Uplay and Origin while they were off creating a console to compete against PC gaming.
No platform is the "master race" but the consoles, especially PS4, were propped up by PC indies in it's first few months/year of it's existence. Without those indie games you'd have had very few games to play on PS4.
Exclusives isn't something to be proud of. They exist to give each console some relevance and purpose. Without exclusives they lose all that and people might as well game exclusively on PC.
I would prefer it if developers would do a bit more R&D on improving AI than higher graphics fidelity and resolutions.
4k resolution isn't obtainable for many people even if you have a machine that can do it. You still need the display to output at 4k. That is still a very small niche market even on PC platform.
It seems like Microsoft are trying to skip a few generations with 4k. How about taking baby steps and trying 1440p or 2k first then 4k wh...
I reckon quite a few as there hasn't been a massive performance improvement for PC gaming till now with 1070/1080 and 480. We are also getting new CPUs from Intel and AMD this year and next as well.
End of 2017 is a long time technology wise with new improvements and iterations of new and existing graphics cards and CPUs coming thick and fast for the next 2-3 years for the PC platform.
I will be upgrading my PC within the next year which will match an...
