Gamers Must Sign Up For Windows Live To Play Gears PC Online >
2007/07/17 10:40:40: Posted by DM
According to CVG, Gears Of War on the PC will only be playable online when gamers sign up for a Windows Live account. Kepe in mind this is the free Windows Live account, not the gold, and it takes only a few minutes to sign up. Still, this could be the beginning of a bad trend.

This is a trend that will help the Games for Windows compatibility between Xbox Live online gaming and Windows Live online gaming.

The more members, the happier everyone will be. It's free and it only takes a couple minutes to sign up, so it isn't a big deal.

How is this a bad trend? don't you need a gamespy account to play most Pc games and some you need a log in account from the developer. This is nothign new with Pc games. Live will help PC games.

So PC gamers can play online for free, but XBox 360 suckers, I mean owners have to pay for the privilege? Nice. How long before they start requiring a paid gold membership to play PC games online?

This is bull crap!!

This is just another attempt of M$ trying to take control of the PC gaming market.

Games for Windows my ass. The PC was always, to me, the most flexable of the gaming consoles but now M$ just has to f**k everything up.

What next, you have to pay for every good connection server you join. Or maybe you have to write a post on a website like this to say how wonderful M$ is.

I like the idea of gamer tags but for Gods sack stop F**king up M$.

It amazes me how Sony fanboys have to resort to elementary insults to try to get their point across. "Keep sucking that MS c**k." If that's your only rebuttal, then I would suggest retaking remedial English classes.

As stated before, most games require you to sign up for an account anyways, whether it be with GameSpy or the actual developer (i.e. EA, Sega). This is really no different. Everyone is getting into a big huff about this when, truthfully, everyone else has done it for years.
