With Games for windows Live, Microsoft tried to shoehorn their very successful Xbox Live model in to the vastly more open PC gaming world. Unsurprisingly, it failed to resonate with gamers who’re used to more freedoms. Recently, the company even admitted it had faltered in its implementation of the service. I hope they plan on sticking to their guns with their plans for making the service better – because a recently outed internal video purporting to be from the â€œwindows Game Experienceâ€ team leads me to believe otherwise.
The video, from May last year, shows that the team envisions as the future of next-generation Windows gaming. It’s not pretty; it’s mostly Kinect-powered, avatar-driven casual fluff, bolstered through DLC purchases. If this is the future of gaming, I’ll be honest in saying I want no part of it. Hit the jump for the video, then hit the floor in the foetal position.
