Well this game line up really doesn't give any suprises! Windows 8 is a tablet operating system that just happens to work on PCs.

I've no interest in Windows 8. Good luck to MS though, get the feeling they'll need it. Steam is what sells, not really convinced anyone is bothered about games on windows.

exactly and with steam moving into hardware now they will be attacking MS on two fronts!

Yep, then add Origin in to the mix and you're covered for all your PC gaming needs between those two.

I agree. Why play Games for Windows when you can play on Steam. Not sure what Valve are up to mind you, from that quote yesterday it sounded like some sort of hardware (the new mouse maybe). I don't think its a console tho.

that's exactly what I thought when I read that comment Joe. Maybe they coudl be looking in to some sort of motion tech for PC games? Or a Steam controller? Not really sure what else could be done that hasn't already for gaming keyboard and mouse.
