Why Microsoft will OWN gaming platforms
March 15, 2007
Microsoft already has been making a killing in the gaming community because developers can write a game once that runs on the XBox and on Windows PCs. …And Windows runs on 95% of the computers in the world. Now that everyone will be forced into upgrading to something a little more modern (to run Vista) I think PC gaming is going to explode.
If the PC market explodes with Vista the same way it has with every previous Windows release prices for hardware will drop. Computer hardware pricing has always been based on volume. I won’t be surprised if a nice Vista machine capable of running impressive 3D graphics like those in DOOM3 is being sold for a mere $500 before the end of the year.
…That would really hurt PS3. …I am so glad I’m not working for Sony or Nintendo right now.
