Microsoft reassures gaming companies that Windows 8 won’t kill them

Among the most vocal Windows 8 doubters have been people associated with the gaming inudstry. Microsoft is finally addressing a few of the issues that they have complained about. The main feature they’re using to reassure gaming partners is the Xbox integration.

A Microsoft spokesman had this to say:

“With Xbox on Windows 8, we created easy entry points into the types of entertainment that you’ll enjoy, including games,” he said. “The Games app prominently features your avatar, profile, friends and Gamerscore and allows you to explore your friends’ avatars.”

Not everyone is going to care about Xbox integration, so this certainly will not matter to everyone.
