It seems like just yesterday that WIndows 7 launched, but as Microsoft’s bread and butter, the next operating system is always in progress. And this time, Microsoft has reportedly claimed that the next OS will be a big deal for PC gaming.
“Windows 8 will represent a real new push into PC gaming,” an anonymous source told TechRadar. “Gaming will be a key component for the whole OS.”
That’s all well and good, but Microsoft has to back up any talk with actions that show they’re serious about PC games again. The current pattern has been to delay or outright cancel big games on PC that already were hits on Microsoft’s Xbox 360. Until Microsoft shows that PC isn’t playing second fiddle to their console business, all the talk in the world about Windows 8 won’t matter.
