But Games for Windows is going to need more than just an image. It needs a purpose.

Step 1: Games for Windows - LIVE

Consoles have always bested PC when it comes to gaming as a whole.

I love PC Gaming, but I am not going to deny consoles being in the limelight since at least NES.

Anyways, what about all of the PC Gamers out there? Tell this to people playing WoW, The Sims and other breeding grounds for hardcore PC Gamers.

Articles like this are so pointless.

GTA IV will NOT be the "Savior" to PC Gaming....thats just stupid and PC Gaming aint dead to begin with.

ye pc isn't better then console when it comes to gaming.

But the most people that play they usually play games like wow or some boring steam game.

Plus you get more greedy with pc games becouse you can just download it,somehow you appreciate games more when you have paid for it.
