Windows 8 not awesome for Blizzard either

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. Newell forecasted that many top tier PC makers will leave the market and talked up the importance of open platforms, pointing out the company’s recent outreach to Linux.

Seeing as how Prado is held in quite high regard both by Blizzard and the likes of Time Magazine, his opinion surely cannot be ignored that easily. Judging by mere size and influence of the companies we’re talking here, this is definitely not the end of it. And while we'd be normally be inclined to tell Mr. Prado to focus on that offline Diablo singleplayer first and then go about his Windows 8 bashing, we'll let it slide this once.
