Homefront: The Revolution Review

The way Newell sees it, Windows 8 brings forth a much more controlled environment that will end up undermining the efforts of creative platforms like Steam.

Speaking to the NY Times, Newell explained: “We would say to Microsoft, we understand all these frustrations about the challenges to your business. But trying to copy Apple will accelerate, not slow, Microsoft’s decline.”


This quote comes coupled with Valve's announcement that they're currently working on a gaming headset that they hope will “let players lose themselves inside a virtual reality and, eventually, blend games with their views of the physical world.” Valve hasn't decided how to go about moving forward with this technology quite yet, but is thrilled with the possibilities it offers.

What do you think? Are gaming headsets really the way of the future? Is Microsoft's closed platform approach with Windows 8 a terrible idea? Sound off in the comments below.
