    Sure. Why not. Maybe fix the performance and problems as well?

    Quantum Break was pretty average, but at least people on PC will be able to play it without putting up with the GFWL 2.0 garbage.

    Sweet, I can finally play it! I know it got pretty mediocre reviews and had a lot of performance problems, but I’d still be interested in playing it for $5 or so.

    I wonder if modders can fix some of the performance problems now that it isn’t locked behind the cancer that is UWP.

    What, you mean Windows 10?

    UWP specifically. Games on Windows Store aren’t the traditional .exe files, but a new format that restricts modding and transfers way more control over to Microsoft than anyone should be comfortable with.

    Yeah, I kinda read through the comments to remember, but I would still call it UWP and not the failed abortion of pushing Xbox Live to a Windows platform.

    Then again, thinking Quantum Break going to Steam and Win7 64bit is the death kneel for UWP and not, say, a game made by an internal MS studio (343, Turn 10, Coalition, etc) is a bit of hubris. Wake me when Gears4 or Halo6 arrive on Win7 64bit, and then we can start celebrating the potential death of UWP

    Naa, Windows 10 is good, or at least i haven’t experienced any issue with games. The only thing i hate is the vertical three column start menu

    A retail PC release – that’s pretty rare and that’s a good price for the collector’s edition.

    Well, as i said, every game i have works perfectly fine on it. For me, compatibility is the most important thing on an OS.

    I dont play AAA (unoptimized) garbage, so I simply stay with Win7 which works just as good for everything else

    Cool. It’ll probably sell a lot better on Steam anyway. For what it’s worth, I’m interested. Not $40 interested, though. More like $15 interested.

    Assuming it’s as fun as it looks, though, I’ll buy the new GoW on Steam for $30 or so.

    “Windows 7 64-bit” is listed under the minimum requirements on the Steam page. I thought UWP didn’t work on old versions of Windows, or did they ditch that shit entirely?

    I play many old games and most of them don’t work on Win10.Stuff like Disciples 2,VtM:Bloodlines,Serious Sam 2 or Gothic 1 to name a few.

    Minimum requirements on the Steam Page also say Windows 7.

    I keep forgetting that this game exists. I love Remedy, Sam lake is an awesome guy but this game just looks so generic.

    this and the recent news that remedy are co-developing a F2P, tells me that Remedy might be in deep financial trouble.

    Every old game I’ve tried has worked. One (Arcanum) I had to do a couple of tweaks to it, but it works just fine after you add a few launch commands.

    I’m 99.99% sure that the Steam release is not UWP.

    I didn’t try Arcanum on Win 10 but my GOG copy works with no complications on Win 7.And I’m sure I could make most of my games work on Win 10 after a few tweaks.Even using some cracks.Still,in my experience they simply work better and they can be made to work faster and with less effort on Win 7.So until I’ll get a real reason to change I’ll stay on this one. That said I know other people are quite happy with W10.Good on them if that is the case.

    What if Microsoft is going to make it a pattern to first release stuff for Windows Store and then later bring some of that stuff to Steam as well? They’d probably get the people who want to buy the game early to buy it from their store whom then probably won’t buy it again from Steam.

    That’s a one way to make people build their UWP game libraries. Then there’s also the Microsoft’s apparent intent to cripple Steam on Windows as well.

    I guess what I’m trying to say here is that it’s way too early to declare UWP, Windows 10 Store and other shit dead. Wait and see what happens. Lets hope that people don’t take the bait.

    Well Microsoft said that they was bring theirs games to steam so I can see that happening.

    Just booted VtM:Bloodlines on Win10, works just fine. That game also doesn’t work on any 64 bit OS without the unofficial patch, so it’s probably not the best example anyways.
