The company agrees with Valve


It appears
like head honchos of the gaming industry aren’t particularly excited about Microsoft’s upcoming OS. Blizzard’s Executive VP of Game Design Rob Prado tweeted that Windows 8 is “not awesome for Blizzard either”.

The tweet came as response to the interview with Valve’s Gabe Newell, where he said that Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space.

Judging by mere size and influence of the companies we’re talking here, this is definitely not the end of it.
