  • Windows 10, Gaming, Are you In or Out?

    I been watching the development of the windows platform, namely windows 10, with some interest lately.

    Here is a link to a recent event.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUCn_rvDU-A

    Basically it looks like Windows 10 is a retrench back to Windows 7 .

    But the direct x 12 capabilities look pretty cool and also the computer will have the xbox one capabilities without having an xbox one.

    There will be a free upgrade to windows 10 if you had Windows 7 or 8.

    With respect to this game we play here maybe we can start up a community of challenges within some of the well known games like forza and a few others to compete. In so doing we may widen a community of gamers to our lil game here.

    Are you going to jump onto Windows 10, Wait for Windows 10.1, Or stick with your original version. ???

      its a step backwards for microsoft. Windows 8 was a flop. No one in our office uses it. I went back to 7 myself so going to 10 should be a breeze. I like the fact that I can make a media server and then also have some xbox usuage without having to buy a console and max out the gaming machine at the same time.

      I could easily see a bunch of us racing or doing some other shit online together. People talk about playing poker all the time and maybe we could make a community grow with the gaming crowd vs the facebook or other media that doesnt seem to be bringing in players.

            Since win10 is free for win7 and win8.1 users it should be a yes for gamers. The only thing is will it truely be as much of a improvement as they say?

              Well I fucking hope it's an improvement from Windows 8
              It's only useful for touch screen devices I'd imagine, but it's still fucking shit

                  I think windows 8 was such a disaster they decided to skip right past 9 and go for 10.

                    I still am using windows 7, Corporate didnt allow anyone to change to 8. We were still getting all our boxed with 7.

                    Windows 10 will be basically Windows 7, with some additional addons. One of them being the direct x12 which should be from the specs will be spectacular for rendering graphics on the fly.

                    I think the xbox directior in the clip states their community now is 50 million with xbox live. If they add on everyone that has no interest in the actual xbox but do get a download of xbox one then that should boost their community exponentially. Microsoft I think is making a good move with this. They basically make next to nothing once the new console pricing goes to present levels. They just make money on the games themselves and some of the services. So why not offer the xbox software which will be actually running on windows 10 and give it up for free, which seems brilliant.

                    Like the guy says in the video Michael they brought back the start menu.

                    You can actually update to the beta version of 10 now for free if you don't like 8.

                      I think in some ways it will be a step back because people didnt like 8. So they been running seven successfully for quite some time so I don't expect many flaws to surface and it should be fairly bullet proof.

                          anyone that does the beta upgrade let me know how it goes.

                          Also if anyone is running kodi on a server let me know as I may use this for media server.

                              I tried looking for an xbox 1 casino game and couldnt find one. At least not a multi player one.
