Il futuro del gaming su PC secondo Microsoft

ZDNet porta alla luce un video interno di Microsoft del maggio 2010. Una visione multipiattaforma, che comprende ovviamente PC, ma che si estende anche a console, Kinect, browser e, ovviamente Social.

Il video è collegato alla ricerca di una posizione su LinkedIn (già eliminata in questi minuti), ma che ZDNet è riuscita a salvare. La descrizione del gruppo di lavoro è la seguente.

The Windows Gaming Experience (WGX) Team is a very passionate team embarking to create a new world-class gaming platform that comes alive in the presence of services and leverages the power of the PC to help define the next generation of Windows and Web gaming to 300 million potential customers. WGX team is realizing its strategy via the delivery of Windows and Web gaming solutions built upon existing available services (internal and external to Microsoft) as well as building as needed Azure-based services to enable this vision.

We are at the early stages of defining and architecting and developing excitement around gaming in Windows and the Web. We have a highly visible company-wide charter to promote gaming and empower game developers to create compelling, immersive, rich experiences in Windows and on the Web. We are on a mission to make games a first-class citizen in Windows through our efforts and in collaboration with other groups across the Interactive Entertainment & Devices (IEB) division.

E’ una visione interessante, da capire quanta volontà ci sia nel portarlo a compimento. Restiamo in attesa.
