WildTangent's CEO Alex St. John claims Windows Vista breaks the vast majority of games available on the market today:
The reason, according to St. John, is the extensive reengineering that went into Vista's security efforts that left many developers and their games in the dust. He told TG Daily that not only does Vista security architecture require a new installation routine but even if that part works, "it's almost certain that Vista's digital rights technology will break existing casual games." For example saving game progress won't be able with Vista, he said.
In a phone interview, in which we talked to the executive about the background of his accusations, he mentioned that "Microsoft went overboard and a little silly with security." Also, he said that he believes that Microsoft isn't so knowledgeable about their users as they claim are: "Otherwise they would have known that online gaming is the third largest application on the Internet and they would have made sure that this works on Vista computers."
