| Been a while since I posted in here. With the "next" generation of consoles on the horizon a few people have been wondering whether MS will alter it's stance on PC gaming. This is what they had to say :-|

| We're talking about console games, but there could be some franchises that also end up with a PC game," Booty responded. "When I think about more connected experiences across those platforms, it's things that show up within that family of devices where we've got Xbox Live, like Windows Phone and Windows 8," and "not what you might consider a more traditional desktop PC game. |
In other words expect the same sh*t from MS with the Xbone that they did with the X360.
Along those lines...
What was the one cross platform game? ShadowRun? I may be totally wrong, but still...
Bare with me here - my ramble might actually end up somewhere coherent.
IMO each platform is it's own unique experience. Playing at a PC is not the same as playing at a console...same thing can be said when you mix arcade cabinets and other gaming methods into the mix too. I own a 360(for a few years now) but I'd say most of my gaming is done on PC. I like the more immersive feeling I get at the PC.
I have moods though. Yesterday I played a few hours of old coin op arcade games. Sometimes I'm in the mood to sink into my comfy couch and play xbox game for hours on my big ass TV.
Here is my bitch and IMO there is no excuse or reason why this feature isn't provided as commonplace. SAVESTATES!!!! Cross platform shareable savestates!!!!!
Here is my real time example and it even involves a MS studio (which should make things simple) game. I own Alan Wake for the xbox but never got into it. Recently I acquired it via Steam for the PC(thanks Narcis). I'm really enjoying the PC version.
My cloud save should follow me from platform to platform. Either let my Steam cloud sync with my MS cloud or just let me save my PC save to my MS cloud.
Why is this not happening?
