Microsoft: ‘Our goal right now isn’t to do anything else other than support Steam’

Haha Games for Windows Live

Speaking to PC Gamer, Microsoft had a bit to say about the ol’ Games for Windows Live and Steam feud. After shuttering the former down in favor of not screwing over its consumers with a bad service, they quickly shifted gears into Windows 10, and evidently, Steam.

Kevin Unangst, senior director for PC gaming states, “We are not intending to compete with Steam. If anything, we want Steam to be even more successful – they’ve done great things for PC gamers in terms of having a single store…our goal right now isn’t to do anything else other than support Steam and help it run great on Windows 10.”

Good choice! I’m actually digging Windows 10 quite a bit so far, once you shut the in-house spyware off.

Games for Windows “wasn’t the right approach” says Microsoft [PC Gamer]
