    Ya when the XB360 came out they dropped gaming sales, and then when Vista came about they continued to downplay PC gaming, and then in event of games for windows scam not working. Now that Win 7 is awesome and XB360 sales are sliding, they gonna promote PC gaming till their next console comes about. Sorry cant trust them.

    They have in the past put out a few surprisingly good titles... Always wondered what percentage were developed completely out of house, or they simply bought the rights to something that looked promising.

    With the XBox, they needed to recoup many investments, perhaps they've done that and feel the cash cow is no longer increasing it's milk production, so like all attention deficit companies, they are jumping over to another pasture.

    yeah, I'm not trust it either but i really hope this time MS will do it right just like the old days, when they release awesome and innovative game


    man i miss those old days when I'm playing AoE series, rise of nation, MS Flight Simulator, mechwarior, but right now MS shut them off, I'm really angry when they shut of BigHuge game, and said there are no more MS Flight Simulator

    Microsoft Studios used to be very popular with Age of Empires franchise (why no Age of Mythology 2 !?) and later Mechwarrior series (MW3 rocked). I also wouldn't mind Project Gotham Racing (PGR) to hit PC someday (hopefully).

    Did they really pull the plug on Flight Simulator?

    One of my all time favorites (and I still play it from time to time) is Motocross Madness 2

    Microsoft? The same company that invented Games for Windows, which proved to be more of a hindrance than a help due to lack of support? The same company that encouraged us to upgrade to DirectX 10 and failed to produce the goods? The same company that confines us to console ports, despite their success in marketing Windows 7? As Kreij said, I'll believe it when I see it, but bringing another console title to the pc platform does not in any way make up for the company's years of neglect.

    yes they do, and MS FSX was the last game, thats why I'm so pissed, because MS flight sim was the most accurate thing, and it even used to train people how to flight real plane, its just like GrandTourismo for sony

    what :confused:, are you saying that I'm trolling?

    Microsoft never really made a great game so I don't care. They should stick to their O/S and other applications.
    TheMailMan78 says thanks.

    Here is what is going to happen.

    Fable 3 comes out - I dont want to buy that dam game.

    People are going to torrent it.

    There thermometer is going to say GTFO were going to get ripped.

    There going to stop again. Simple as that.

    Dam Halo 3 for the PC will be a change for the game, Would be beast to play if ported right.

    Gears of War PC was hell fun in the right servers. Beast at that game, but it was torrented so much and ripped, same with halo 2. That I remember reading the comment of epic+ Microsoft just saying there not going to make gears of war 2 and stop supporting because of all the torrenting.


    Oh well...

    oh, sorry my bad then.

    are you sure ? MS used to be my favorite game developer/publisher, and they used to release great innovative game, and I'm still remember playing an odd RTS that you can build your own unit, with animal DNA and you can actually create anything, also all of their RTS is great (especially the AoE, rise of nation series).

    i have tried it, and it doesn't have the feeling that MS FS have :(,

    I'm not sure what you meant by this post, but when I said "'nuff said", I meant that is all I have to say. Everyone else can blather away on this topic :)

    Just keep it civil.

    Halo 2 especially was torrented due to the Windows XP release only available through that channel. It would've been something if Halo 2 was actually Vista only for a legitimate reason (ie DX10 support), but the fact that it was running on XP in a matter of weeks after release just shot Microsoft's credit down the tubes. To make it worse, now Bungie doesn't want to release Halo 3 on PC because of the Halo 2 sales record. In all honesty, when you release a game for Vista only, at the same time as the height of the Vista bashing parade, you should expect poor sales and lots of torrenting (especially when XP support gets hacked in).

    It is a shame, because if Bungie would release Halo 3 for XP/Vista/7, they would make some good sales. They'd do even better if they included the ODST campaign and all the DLC maps for multiplayer.

    Impossible Creatures.

    Microsoft did make good games in those days, yes, but now that the Xbox is last week and windows 7 is brand-new, I don't trust them.

    I won't believe this until they re-establish Alan Wake as a PC title.
