Windows 8 Gaming Evolution Needs to Be More Than Just About DirectX vNext


A recent report indicates that Microsoft regards the advent of Windows 8 as the perfect chance for a new push into PC gaming.

The Redmond company has yet to offer official confirmation of this, but itís expected of the software giant to at least overhaul the graphics core of Windows 7ís successor, thus catalyzing the evolution of gaming experiences leveraging the platform.

Hopes aren't high though. The cloud is really being pushed

As if every single publisher and developer has the interest (and resources) in supporting yet another DRM scheme. An online-based one as well, who knows what backdoors are going into it. This isn't going to go over well if they try to force it.

Many of us hardcore gamers are running Windows instead of Linux is precisely because of gaming. When Linux doesn't blow so much at running games many would jump ship in a heartbeat. Really, what else is there to tie you to the OS? Productivity apps? Linux has most everything already.

When the Cloud goes down, you won't have access to your games (or any other app, for that matter) until it gets back up. Or until you insert your credit card number / favourite method of payment / etc. Right now when you buy something, at least you can install and play with it as you like. With an online leash tied to it, it's more like you're just renting something. The publisher or whoever else has a finger in the pie can simply revoke your ability to use it for whatever reason, whenever they like, at their whims. Who's to guarantee that they won't?

Yeah... no thanks.

This all sounds bogus to me. MS isn't going to jeopardize their income from business customers, and business customers are going to wholeheartedly reject an operating system that has a "focus" on gaming, in any way.

My belief it's not even about having an entirely new OS, it's more like we need more "games."

Don't you agree? I could actually enjoy Halo 3 online with GFWL or how about Red Dead Redemption?

Who's with me?!

But seriously, we need more games for PC's and not just platform only.

Push as hard as they like but if the consumer is not satisfied it will end up like 3dtv has for the past 4 decades, wishful corporate thinking!

I'm happy with gaming as it is....
