Oh, and color me unimpressed by the XBLA brigade. Bring back Age of Empires (no, not Age of Empires Online) and maybe we're getting somewhere. There are, after all, big franchises and genres that PC gamers will shell out $60 for, and not even for a physical copy. But even then, we're talking about the possibility of Windows 8 exclusive titles, like what Project Spark is supposed to be, so it's quite possible that I can't be pleased at all.
Your feelings on Windows 8 is subjective. I know people that have come to prefer it. You're just nitpicking.
Sounds like you're already praising SteamOS... lets hope the driver support is good and many games you enjoy are ported.
If you want MS's Triple A games, go buy a Xbox 360 or X1. Clearly not enough PC gamers are buying their games and many games skip the PC for that reason.
Not many PC games sell well at $50 - $60. Don't just look for the few exceptions.
Its sounds like your biggest gripe is MS doesn't cater to you. That's isn't a good reason to dislike a company. Sega doesn't cater to me anymore, so I just don't care about Sega anymore. There are plenty of other developers making games I enjoy.
