    How come no one's talking about this awesome game that can be played in both platforms? :D

    The game is amazing, I play it on Xbox all the time. It has a lot of settings for PC users, but it has one issue. UWP.

    People are boycotting buying anything from the Windows Store. Personally I do not mind buying a game from the Windows Store, but sadly Microsoft is forcing too much with this and just will not budge on some things.

    Now if it all went the way Phil Spencer wanted it to go, UWP would have been a pretty great platform.

    Yeap game is just amazing to look at, and the HDR stuff is simply stunning, makes me wish all games were patched to use HDR.

    I bought an Xbox One slim mainly for Netflix and BBCPlayer, the lack of REAL exclusives is a shame on this platform. I also bought GOW 4 digital because it's the only way to have it on PC too thanks to "play anywhere".I'm still waiting for their message with GOW collection for Xbox One.

    The idea of "Play anywhere" is great but the problem is UWP and the F**** Windows Store because it's simply impossible to install this PAID game in my main OS install (even on C partition), the funny thing is free stuff including games like Forza 6 Apex install properly. I can only install GOW 4 in a clean 1607 build with no antivirus installed and without any OS setting customization.

    Phil Spencer the Xbox guy since forever now in charge of the whole gaming thing at MS? He thinks about Xbox One first then he thinks about Xbox One again and when he has 5 minutes he tries to set the gaming bar at Xbox One level for all MS platforms including Windows 10.

    Gaming on Windows 10 | Xbox:

    http://www.xbox.com/en-US/windows-10

    Now the other option:

    Games | Windows 10 - Microsoft

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-10-games

    Here is the big difference at the end of this "MS windows 10 gaming" page:

    [​IMG]
    For MS PC gaming is all about Xbox games ported/streamed/shared to Windows 10 Store because we all know PC can't stream to Xbox One...

    ...the POWA is only on the Xbox! LOL


    I'm tired to read reports on MS forums about Windows 10 Store install problems, the only effective solutions are the usual:

    - Refresh PC.Lost all programs installed and custom settings.
    - Reinstall Windows 10 and don't touch it."Console mode" aka kiosk mode should be a real solution.
    - Contact game support and ask a refund.(i saw that A LOT)

    I don't discuss the price at all in my post.

    It's very possible my key cost less than that.

    The problem is the installation of games and limitation of MS Windows 10 Store.

    ANY kind of price but free is expensive if you can't install what you bought.

    Once I knew the games I wanted would be locked to another system like GFWL I was out, hell would freeze over and still nothing would ever convince me to go down that route again, I even have the free copy of FH 3 for W10 sitting there and I will never touch it, I see no need to deal with drivers, frame rate issues, broken settings,and a seemily unending supply of bugs, when the console version simply works and looks great, I mean just reading this thread alone and the hair pulling issues people have and are having should be enough for anybody to know to steer clear of W10 version of GFWL at all costs, or until it becomes a service for the gamer, and not a jumping through hoops nightmare for gamers to traverse every time they buy a game on it. Lol

    Hate?

    When the customers buying games in MS Windows 10 store have another store to buy the same games on PC they should not be all considered masochist by decree. :D

    Even MS acknowledged that:

    Windows 10 Store Refunds ‘Call of Duty’ Player Because Nobody's Playing It

    As said already, there is already a Gears 4 thread. What's more concerning is the complete lack of discussion on Obsidian's new game, Tyranny. Or the lack of popularity of Titanfall 2.

    Titanfall 2 was released in a bad timing in attempt of EA to destroy CoD sales. they shot their own foot unfortunately... TF2 is an amazing game.

    While I will agree it was released at a bad time. I don't think EA's decision for that was trying to hurt CoD sales.
    It was released a week after BF1. Another EA title.

    It was just stupid of them to release both games so close.

    weekend BF1 , next weekend TF2 , next weekend COD.
    Trust me, there was a marketing purposes here. - but well..
    Many people preferred spending money on BF1 / TF2 rather than buying COD.
    Trust me, this is the COD that sold the least since who knows when..
