Isn't damage control fun? On the heels of Kudo Tsunoda's unfortunate statements regarding PC shooters, another executive, Microsoft Game Studios General Manager Dave Luehmann, has vowed to "lead the way on the PC"—and admitted that it still has some work to do on that front.
"There's been a fair bit of criticism aimed at Microsoft that we were spending a lot of our focus on console, and we need to be putting resources behind PC as well," Microsoft Games Studios' general manager Dave Luehmann told MCV in an interview.
"Other companies should look to Microsoft for leadership, but I'm not sure they do. It is our job to lead the way on PC. And in some ways we are doing that and in other ways we are not. So we need to step up.
Luehmann went on to pimp three "big IPs" Microsoft is bringing to the PC: Age of Empires Online, Fable III, and Microsoft Flight.
As Shacknews points out, Fable III isn't exactly the most shining example, considering Microsoft delayed the PC version indefinitely in August, choosing instead to prioritize the Xbox 360 launch. That leaves Age of Empires Online and Microsoft Flight, which I'm sure everyone is really excited about.
