Among the countless games that appeared in the exhibition E3 Yearly, widespread interest in personal computers - from Sega, EA and Microsoft
In the not-so-distant past,PC A secondary and insignificant factor that does not warrant investment. To our delight, today the situation has changed completely, and we are seeing increasing interest in this huge platform - which is also reflected in the largest gaming show of all in Las Vegas.
The main surprise came from the direction of developer and distributor Sega, which announced a significant change of direction in a venture called Best of Japan on PC - bringingSteam The Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami (the first installment of the series), the Valkyria Chronicles 4 role-playing game, the Shenmue and Shenmue 2 classic games and more.
It's a great start without a shadow of a doubt, and we hope there will be a sequel to this project, too, with all the other beloved Yakuza series games - and possibly Bayonetta 2 and future Bayonetta 3.
Microsoft also strengthened its latest strategy whereby the dedicated 10 windows store is part of the larger Xbox platform, not only in words but also in deeds - announcing that Forza Horizon 4 and the new games in the Gears of War series (both Gears 5 and Gears of War Tactics), The Skating Session title, Bombastic Action title Crackdown 3 and even Halo: Mysterious Infinite will all be available for PC, along withXbox One.
It may be strange that personal computer enthusiasts are not able to experience the whole sequence of the most demanding of some of the leading brands at home Microsoft Office - but at least the future feels rosier and more optimistic, while at the same time you can continue to fantasize about upgraded and modernized versions of hits like Halo 3 and Gears of War 2 to be re-launched one day.
For dessert, it was EA announcing the serviceOrigin Its future Access Premier for PCs - allowing titles to be streamed directly (without downloading and installing, and without using the available local processing power) directly to your screen for a pre-determined monthly payment.
The service will begin its experimental run in the coming months, and although we have not been told which countries will be available - the fact that the technology is based on the acquisition of the Israeli GameFly company probably increases the likelihood that we will see the capability in the Holy Land as well. If that's not enough - the Madden football title's 2019 version will reachPC, After a break of over a decade.
Is there a chance that Sony, The central refusenik that remains, will slightly change its approach and adopt computers as another platform to increase its commercial potential? Apparently, with momentum like now, you can not rule it out.
