At Microsoft’s keynote speech yesterday, the publisher announced that SEGA, THQ and Eidos had signed up to make some of their forthcoming PC titles Games for Windows Live enabled. GFW Live brings the best that Xbox Live has to offer to the PC including voice chat between friends, Achievements and one consistent Gamertag. Selected titles such as Shadowrun even allow Xbox 360 owners to play against PC gamers.
During Microsoft’s conference, they announced that six new titles from Microsoft Game Studios, SEGA, THQ and Eidos would take advantage of Games for Windows Live by the end of 2007. Unfortunately, the specific titles were not revealed. However, Gamerscoreblog has announced that the pre-mentioned titles are as follows:
- The Club (SEGA)
- Gears of War (Microsoft Game Studios)
- Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights (THQ)
- Kane & Lynch: Dead Men (Eidos)
- Universe at War: Earth Assault (SEGA)
- Viva Piñata (Microsoft Game Studios)
Currently it’s unclear which titles will just include voice chat, achievements and PC-to-PC multiplayer (ala Halo 2) and which will include all that plus Xbox 360-to-PC multiplayer (ala Shadowrun).
