Robert McLaws: Windows Edition

Blogging about Windows since before Vista became a bad word

Xbox's Peter Moore: Welcome to Windows Vista

Mark your calendars: January 30th 2007 will be the most significant day in gaming for the next several years.

In just one week, we’ll release to consumers the largest and most significant advance in gaming technology Microsoft has ever made: Windows Vista.

For the first time in Microsoft’s history, we’re releasing an operating system built from the ground up with gaming as a core scenario. With a worldwide presence of over 200 million gamers of all stripes, we’re taking the world’s most popular gaming platform and making it easier, safer, and more fun for everyone, while delivering new technologies that will deliver the most powerful, most immersive, most innovative gaming experiences to the Windows platform.

Unlike any OS before, we’re driving Windows Vista as a true gaming platform, complete with a broad marketing campaign that introduces the Games for Windows brand, complemented by ground-breaking branded titles from Microsoft Game Studios as well as from many of the world’s leading game developers. We are also investing in a more consistent brand presence at retail that will create a true category that will easy for the consumer to discover and navigate.

    As a hardened PC and Xbox 360 gamer... the words just sound like rhetoric to me as in practice I have seen little to benefit gamers in Vista.
