Microsoft Losing Ground On Windows Store and UWP For Gaming

Vigile writes: Microsoft has big plans to try and merge the experiences of the Xbox One and Windows for gaming but the push back from the community and from major developers and personalities is mounting. Earlier this week PC Perspective posted a story that detailed the controversy around DX12 performance analysis without an exclusive full screen mode, changes to multi-GPU configurations and even compatibility issues with variable refresh that crop up from games from the Windows Store. Microsoft’s only official response so far as been that it is listening to feedback and plans to address it with upcoming changes. Now today, Epic’s Tim Sweeney has posted an editorial at The Guardian with an even more dramatic tone, saying that UWP (Unified Windows Platform) “can, should, must and will, die…” Clearly the stakes are being placed in the ground and even damage control from Phil Spencer on Twitter isn’t likely to hold back angry PC users.
