Microsft. Do they care about those who play GFWL?

Postby GH05T SN1P3R 92 » Thu Aug 02, 2012 9:08 am

In my experience of playing GFWL titles I have came across a problem nearly everytime i've install a game or tried to apply an update. This is mainly because I run a 64 bit system don't know anyone who has a 32 bit system. So when i've asked microsoft why, it seems they have no clue what they are talking about but when I go on to a user based community where others have encountered these problems. Guess what. They have a solution and those who have managed to get an update to install have provided it for someone to install which is quicker in some cases than downloading it directly from microsoft. So a thumbs up for the GFWL community! :D Please post your comments below as to why you feel how you do about Microsoft and please join in the poll.

I have to go for no, especially as there is a lack of any mention of GFWL anymore from M$- I keep waiting for even the little trickle of games to dry up.

I think they don't care about GFWL really..> With windows 8 and the next xbox I think they might give it a shot as they try to integrate everything.

I think they care as they want to get everyone on Live. But the PC is not a closed system that they can control like Xbox so it will be harder to support and take longer to get as widespread as being on every game.

I voted yes for one simple reason. Microsoft loves money and any way they can get some. So maybe mine was a sarcastic vote.

I am undecided at this time. Once they tried to charge for it and that failed horribly. They have release games that have achievements though not as many and I would have hoped for. But they have put out two "free" to play games that are fun but require DLC to do much more in the game. I am undecided but leaning to No.

what ticks me off is sooo many games come out on xbox and pc, yet their pc counterparts dont have achievements. (like rage, Call of duty series, etc etc)

thats what grinds my gears. I also wish WP7 games could also be played on pc (and some titles even on xbox)

but, i want alot, so thats just me.

I don't know why they have "games for windows" and "games for windows live" it makes it confusing for the consumer- which is never a good thing. It seems a no brainer that having achievements would be a good thing, and at least generate a few ore sales. One of he many things that makes PC games feel like an afterthought.

I think that the GFWL was more of an afterthought from Microsoft and they care more about the games that will bring them the most money like the 2 "free games".
