Shacknews is reporting that Microsoft is looking to improve their performance in the first party game development sector. Microsoft has long held onto the OS crown largely on the backs of the enthusiast gaming market.
Simply put, many games were just not made on anything but Windows. Fast forward to 2013 and Microsoft has found itself in a much different gaming landscape. Nintendo has all but captured the handheld and under 10 market. Sony is looking at snapping up at least 60% market share in the home console sector, and now Valve is looking at taking a piece of both the console and PC gaming market with their upcoming Steam Machine.
It’s no surprise then that Microsoft is looking to improve on their dismal performance when it comes to developing PC games in the past half decade.
