Gabe Newell from Valve at twitter: "Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in PC space"

Post by UP^Jaskaman on 28th July 2012, 00:05

After reading Newell's comment, Blizzard's Rob Pardo said: " nice interview with Gabe Newell - "I think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space* - not awesome for Blizzard either"

Reason for this dramatic comment is that Windows 8 has build in Windows shop, and everyone who sells thru that has to pay 30% royalty to Microsoft, this has made some angry comments towards Windows 8.

Windows 9 will charge you a fee for each file you access...

From a finance view is windows shop good for Microsoft but from a PR view is it not as good.

Also I don't know where you got your information about Gabe Newell working with blizzard, he is with Valve... Sadly the rest of the story seems true and windows store was announces quite some time ago but I never heard of it until now... One more reason to skip W8 (as if I needed another...).
