Microsoft should "put more emphasis on the Windows operating system," Blizzard Entertainment COO Paul Sams recently told Gamasutra.
"Their gaming focus is very much on the [Xbox] 360. And that makes sense, cause they're a hardware manufacturer as well as a software developer," Sams pointed out.
Sams' words follow closely on the heels of comments made by Blizzard president Rob Pardo, who spoke out about this topic at the recent Game Developers Conference in Paris: "They have their own game system now, so I don't think it's really in their best interest to support [PC gaming]."
Both Sams and Pardo make an excellent point: How can (and more importantly, why would) Microsoft devote enough resources and manpower to promote gaming on the PC when they are directly competing with the platform via the Xbox 360?
