Watching microsoft do anything competently is like watching my dog solve a rubik's cube.

Still, it's better than apple being a major figure in the games industry.


They'd make microsoft look like Mother Theresa.

I don't know, man. If Apple were to enter the console market, at least you'd know that all iOS and OS X devices would "talk" to it and you'd be able to share all your iTunes content and Apps on it. Apple's ecosystem of devices all interact with each other better than many other companies' devices do. I think Apple could do well in the console market, as long as they get some hardcore games and not just casual games for it.

Microsoft SHOULD wash their hands of PC gaming so people will just shut up about it already. They have a gaming platform. It is Xbox. Move on.

The PC already has the best platform in Steam. If that is not good enough for you, then apparently nothing in existence is.

That's the reason I hate EA for making Origin. There was already a centralized system in place, but they decide to completely change that and separate communities. The same thing happened with MGO when Konami didn't want to use PSN, and that led to terrible download times, along with having to re-add all of my friends on it.
