Microsoft harping on about its dedication to PC gaming is never new. It loved PC gaming when it created the Xbox One. It loved PC when it bought Bungie and made Halo an Xbox exclusive. It loved PC when it totally botched Games For Windows Live. And now Microsoft has once more said it loves PC with the announcement of a slew of Xbox One exclusives making the jump. The catch? They make the leap to the Windows 10 Store.
Said store is in its infancy and certainly has its fair share of drawbacks. Every app in the Windows Store is a UWP (Universal Windows App) product, and has various limitations such as limited multi-GPU support, no GSync, no modding, and more. It's the first step towards locking down Windows and creating a walled garden, and that's certainly what Epic's Tim Sweeney thought earlier this week during his tirade against Microsoft. It's a hot topic, and perfect GD LiveCast fodder, so Tim is joined by Ryan and Lukas for a run-down of whether Microsoft is killing PC gaming.
That's what the GD LiveCast team thought, but what do you make of Microsoft's recent rumblings in the gaming arena? Is this a stab in the back or the first step to greater things?
