I wouldn't mind having Forza on the PC, but it's not life and death. I'm not a big fan of the way Turn 10 and Microsoft/forzamotorports treats their customers. The Forza forums are the worst fanboy circle jerk on the internet. No doubt the Forza Xbox "purist racers" would be looking down from Forza Mountain on the PC lower life forms.

If they brought Forza to PC I would be all over that. Would even get me to buy an XBox controller.

You forgot rise of the tomb raider.

Edit - nevermind - not an XBONE exclusive.

Considering I personally have no desire to play any of the listed games, it would make zero difference to me.
We know almost nothing about Recore, there was just a CGI trailer. As for the others I am mildly interested in Fable legends. I don't think the other games are interesting. I have Killer Instinct on XB1 and sea of thieves looks like a bad MMO but dunno.

They're making a Halo Wars 2? That's got my interest the most, and thank goodness they're releasing it on PC this time around.

Agreed. I would have loved to play the first one on PC. I'll probably buy Halo Wars day 1.

I'm just hoping that we get cross-buy like on some of the PSN games. I already own Killer Instinct Season 1 and Season 2 on the Xbox One. So, it'd be nice to not have to buy it again.

EDIT:

can't wait for killer instinct. was one of my favorite games growing up.
If you want to get yourself psyched up ahead of time, check out the updated version of Cinder's theme. It's so good! I bought the second season soundtrack pretty much just for that song.

I just bought an XB1 and I would agree there's just a handful of games that made me do it. Forza (Horizon 2) and the NHL series. I have a handful of other games but console gaming is not any better. Shooters especially I can't stand with a controller.

I have an XB controller for the PC and playing NFS Rivals - the driving plays the same as a console now that I have one.

Quantum Break rated for PC in Brazil..

They should just announce it and be done with it. The chances that this game will come to PC is very high imo, given Remedy's history with the PC platform and that it's being published by Microsoft.

I could easily see a DX12 capable PC version being released sometime in the future after the Xbox One version debut in April.

My life is not complete until KI is release for PC

•Killer Instinct: Season 3 (Xbox One & Windows 10) – March 2016

I'm looking forward to this like a fat kid looks forward to dessert before dinner.
How do people love dessert so much? When I see dessert, I'm so gross out by it.

A friend of mine was just asking me earlier tonight about upgrading his PC to be able to play the PC version of KI.

Game-debate.com has a page up with some info, apparently some high-end PhysX-type effects like cloth and ice for the main characters.

After I read that, I was like, no way is your old PC going to be able to play that game, unless you get a $320+ video card like a GTX970.

He currently has an Athlon II X4 640 3.0Ghz quad-core and a GT610 video card, and 4GB of DDR2.

I've got a 16GB kit of RAM on order for him, so it should take care of the RAM issue, assuming that it works ok in his mobo.

Video cards, well, I've got some R9 270X and R7 260X video cards that I can sell him (new).

But I'm not really sure that will be enough for KI PC.

I also offered him a rig with an i3-6100 and 8GB DDR4 and a R9 270X 2GB and SSD, etc. for $600.

So, I figured I'd add some bits from the BUILD keynote that pertain to gaming on Windows.


  • Phil Spencer: "Moving forward, all our games are shipping on Windows 10 and Xbox"
  • Phil Spencer: "Our plan is for games that will run better on Windows, with more predictable performance, greater user safety, and better install/uninstall"
  • Disabling V-Sync and G-Sync/FreeSync support will come in Windows 10's Anniversary Update that's due this summer.
  • Mod support and Overlay support will be coming "in the future"
  • Centennial tool supports easy conversion to the UWP framework for both new and old games.

I had said in another thread that people still ragging on MS about UWP's limitations were using outdated biases.

It's always nice to be validated.

I wouldn't mind playing some halo. I like the series, but can't bring myself to buy a console just to play it and the few other exclusives I'm interested in.

I'm not really sure how you think anything that I wrote necessarily looks good for Microsoft. :confused: I mean... are they fixing stuff? Yes, but this is quite literally Windows Phone all over again. Microsoft essentially excels at releasing half-baked products into a marketplace where their competitors have fully-fledged products already available. I mean... as a developer, what incentive do I have to use the Windows Store as a platform that I want my customers to use when Steam, Origin and even uPlay are far, far more user-friendly? (By the way, it's pretty sad if the much reviled uPlay is in a list of examples of better storefronts. :p)

Take what you said, go back to when Steam was new, and voila. At least people can play the UWP games at launch.

And yes, the whole point is that they're fixing the stuff people were complaining about.
