Games for Windows live! ???
« on: December 20, 2007, 11:03:43 am »
Does anyone know? Has it been put out yet wether Spore (which I've heard is coming to a variety of consoles, including Xbox360) will be compatible with Games for Windows live? I want to get it for PC because I think the graphics will be better, plus it makes user mods easier to download, etc. But I'd also like to get some nifty gamer achievements for my xbox profile, and if its compatible with microsofts games for windows live I'll be able to do that.

I don't think we'll know the answer to that for some time. They have only confirmed they'll do it for other consoles, they have gone into no other detail then that.  I think you have to wait, maybe even until after release before they start talking about the console versions.

I hope not, I'm still runnng XP, windows live runs on Vista only.  :(
And in the light of Spore being also playable on Mac, I think it will not be Windows Live. *crosses fingers*

Windows live is the worst **** that has hit the pc market for years.

Universe at War is a lovely RTS but it got killed by a stupid subscription ala mmorpg games.
Its just another way of cashing in big time on genres that has never had subscription.

But EA/Microsoft decides themselves if they wanna include it. If they do then hello bittorrent.

I use Windows LIVE on XP. The silver account things dont cost anything either. I found this out when I bought Gears of War on the PC. And yes, my critical self doesnt think much to GoW overall.

The answer to this question is easy.  Are other EA PC games using games for windows live?  No?  Then neither will Spore.

I rather think that Spore will be a EA Store download, like the Sims 2 is.

What I would give to do that, but if it were released for live only I would be so pissed >:(. But that's highly unlikely it would be released on live for windows as Windows Vista is a piece of crap and unreliable. Most of us here would probably die if it were released for windows live only, right?

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.
