    This is the same that Sony did with the MetalGear for years

    So a game I would have got on pc is no longer going to happen thanks MS and Square. A real win win :/

    I wonder when MS will do anything other than port tablet games to pc? They have let their platform die (windows live, which Im glad about It was incredibly badly made and maintained.) They have let their pc offerings wither letting competition grow massively see steam et al .
    They need to stop saying every few years that they have great plans for pc and actually do something for once. Windows 9 lead up would be a great time to do this to help counter the negative pr from windows 8 (which I like btw) But so far nothing and I cant see it changing. To prop up xbox they becoming increasingly short sighted.

    It would also be nice to have some journalist push them on this but no game site or indeed MS news site ever seems to.
