He stated that while Microsoft is actively promoting PC through their 'Games for Windows' program, Sams feels strongly "that there's more that can be done."
"Well, their gaming focus is very much on the 360. And that makes sense, cause they’re a hardware manufacturer as well as a software developer. And so they’ve got a lot of money and investment tied up in that system," said Paul Sams in an interview with Gamasutra.
During a Q&A session at the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational, SVP Rob Pardo had some words on Microsoft's level of commitment himself: "With Microsoft, I think they have a bit of lip service with PC gaming. They have their own game system now, so I don’t think it’s really in their best interest to support."
"And I kind of look at it and say to myself, and I think similarly to Rob, is that it would be great if they put more emphasis on the Windows operating system, certainly probably the most prominent operating system in the world. Even more so than console boxes," Paul Sams continued in his interview.
"It makes sense to me, what they’re doing, they’re putting their energy and focus against the 360. That’s where their huge R&D dollars are that they have to earn out on and that’s where I think their gaming bread and butter is right now."
Is the Games for Windows program enough for PC? Will theprove to be the Knight in shining armour?
