We all knew it would happen eventually. This is just the official confirmation straight from the horse's mouth. Once again, GamesIndustry.biz brings us news of the various ongoings at CES.
"Windows Vista marks the biggest investment from Microsoft around Windows games since Windows 95, making games easier, safer and more fun to play on the PC," said Microsoft boss Bill Gates, as part of his CES keynote in Las Vegas.
The company used highly-anticipated titles such as Age of Empires III: The Warchiefs, Shadowrun, Company of Heroes, Age of Conan ? Hyborian Adventures and Crysis, as well as a PC version of Live Arcade favourite Geometry Wars, to show off commitment to the Games for Windows format.
Live on Vista sounds pretty incredible if you ask me. There's a ton of potential there, and with Microsoft looking to rule PC gaming, contending with their services (online and offline) will be no mean feat.
