PC Gaming is a priority

Microsoft executive Phil Spencer has stated the vital importance of PC gamers to the tech company. We have a “responsibility” to PC gamers, he has said. In particular, Microsoft is talking about revamping the Microsoft Store to improve the PC gaming experience.

It seems Microsoft is gearing its strategies towards these users to ensure the future of their Xbox console and gaming in general. The Microsoft Store’s plans are a top priority for the company right now.

It comes right after Microsoft is trying out their upcoming Windows 10 April update. The update will allow players to download and play native Xbox One games on PC.

However, the Microsoft Store revamp is not everything the company is doing. The entire gaming ecosystem of the tech firm is moving towards a single goal: become the next gaming leaders in the market and snatch that place from Sony’s PlayStation.

Spencer told PC Gamer “delivering a great gaming experience to PC players is critically important to the future of Xbox and gaming at Microsoft.”

In a recent interview with PC Gamer, Spencer -executive VP of gaming at Microsoft- said the firm’s priority is delivering a Store experience tailored for gamers. The new store should have to factor all past challenges the tech giant has seen on PC.

The Microsoft Store is, currently, not an ideal place to search for gaming titles. First and foremost, searches are not optimized for gaming. And secondly, if you download a game from the Windows Store, you will struggle with various issues, glitches, and platforms that gave the platform its fame.

Spencer has acknowledged Microsoft has “made some mistakes” during its interview. During 2018’s E3, he said how Microsoft would push forward PC gaming through its Microsoft Store and overall Windows improvements.
