microsoft Microsoft will sell their games on Steam
NewsBot posted a topic in Backpage NewsWhile some of Microsoft's older game titles, such as Age of Empires II HD (a 2013 update of a 1999 game) are found on Valve's Steam platform, its latest high-profile titles, such as Forza 6 Apex and Quantum Break, are exclusive to the Windows Store. But this is going to change, with Microsoft planning to release more titles on the popular store. Phil Spencer, head of the Xbox team at Microsoft, was talking on Giant Bomb's E3 stream, via GameSpot. When it comes to PC gaming, the Windows Store is very much an also-ran, with Steam the dominant force. As Spencer noted, "I don't think Valve's hurt by not having [Microsoft's] first-party games in their store right now. They're doing incredibly well." Accordingly, Spencer said that Microsoft "will ship games on Steam again." Meanwhile, Microsoft's own experience had been more inconsistent. While some games have done well in the Windows Store, with Spencer naming both Forza 6 Apex and Killer Instinct as successful titles, he said that "Quantum Break wasn't our best PC release" and that Gears of War Ultimate Edition was merely "OK." The Windows Store is used to selling games built using the Universal Windows Platform. These have come under fire for certain technical restrictions that they suffer, such as having no option to disable V-sync and limited support for multiple GPUs. Microsoft is continuing to work to lift these restrictions: the Windows 10 Anniversary Update will allow disabling v-sync and will improve multiple GPU support, and the latest builds of Store app make it easier to install games onto different disks. This was a particular annoyance for large games such as the 50GB or so of Quantum Break—with many gamers preferring a fast SSD system drive combined with a larger spinning disk for their games, the Store's default to using the system drive for all installations was a problem. Spencer did not say which games would be sold on Steam, nor when they would appear. Selling games this way could do more than merely open them up to a wider audience; it may also be useful in proving that UWP apps are not inextricably tied to the Windows Store and that they can in fact be sold by third parties. This has been a point of contention after game developer Tim Sweeney said that UWP is a "closed platform-within-a-platform" that "should, must, and will die," even though this isn't actually true. Selling UWPs on Steam would underscore this point and demonstrate that third-party storefronts are perfectly possible. Source: ArsTechnica View the full article

steam Steam Controller
NewsBot posted a topic in Backpage NewsA new way to play your entire Steam library from the sofa. Join the Steam hardware beta and help us shape a new generation of gaming. A different kind of gamepad We set out with a singular goal: bring the Steam experience, in its entirety, into the living-room. We knew how to build the user interface, we knew how to build a machine, and even an operating system. But that still left input â€” our biggest missing link. We realized early on that our goals required a new kind of input technology â€” one that could bridge the gap from the desk to the living room without compromises. So we spent a year experimenting with new approaches to input and we now believe weâ€™ve arrived at something worth sharing and testing with you. Complete catalog The Steam Controller is designed to work with all the games on Steam: past, present, and future. Even the older titles in the catalog and the ones which were not built with controller support. (Weâ€™ve fooled those older games into thinking theyâ€™re being played with a keyboard and mouse, but weâ€™ve designed a gamepad thatâ€™s nothing like either one of those devices.) We think youâ€™ll agree that weâ€™re onto something with the Steam Controller, and now we want your help with the design process. View the full article
