Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

Windows Vista Gaming First Impressions

Posted on Monday, December 11 @ 22:06:40 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
I had a meeting with MS last week to check out Windows Vista gaming, so I thought I'd share. There are essentially two parts of Vista that are important to gamers, the first is DirectX 10, and the second is the overall support of PC gaming.

I’m not going to embarrass myself by trying to get technical about DirectX 10. Apparently it allows you to use the hardware in the graphics cards in more flexible ways. What I do know is that it looks cool. A picture is definitely worth a thousand words in this case, and a video even more, so just check out Crysis, Hellgate: London, and Eve Online and we’ll call it done.

Support for games and gamers is another thing, and it looks like they’re taking everything they’ve learned so far from the Xbox and applying it to Vista. Nothing makes that more obvious than their upcoming 360 Wireless Receiver. Just plug this little guy into a USB port and every single Xbox 360 peripheral now works on your PC too. Very cool.

Other tools are provided for developers that try to unify PC gaming like console gaming, and not just standardizing the boxes and branding (although they're doing that too). Vista also provides universal plug in tools for saving games, parental controls, match making and voice support – all through the PC’s own version of the Live service. And yes, PC gamers will finally be able to play with 360 gamers in the same games.

It’s all going to be right there on the start button. My Videos and My Music are going to have a new roommate – My Games.
