Blizzard also pessimistic about Windows 8

Posted on Monday, July 30 2012 @ 11:32:10 CEST by

Last week Valve's Gabe Newell complained Windows 8 is going to be a catastrophe for PC gaming and it appears he isn't the only major game developer that thinks so because his statement got echoed by Rob Pardo, Blizard's executive vice president of game design at the Diablo 3 studio:
Rob Pardo, the executive vice president of game design at the Diablo 3 studio, quoted Newell's comments on his personal twitter account before adding that Windows 8 is "not awesome for Blizzard either".

Discussion on the value of Windows 8 has hitherto been relatively quiet among games designers. Yet Newell, the co-founder of Valve Software, sparked debate on the subject by describing Windows 8 as "a catastrophe".
One of the thinks the game developers fear is that Microsoft will gain more control over various applications and purchases made through Windows 8 by closing the platform. The new Windows Store could restrict companies' options to sell software directly, and force them to give Microsoft a 30 percent fee of every sale made through the store.
