    We already knew that a version of Killer Instinct (S3) for PC was in the works. That it would be a Windows 10 only title, we didn't expect. It is a confirmed release in March 2016 on PC. It will be...

    Windows 10 is a great modern system and I see absolutely 0 reasons for home users not to adopt it asap as the benefits are amazing. All the people whining about it either usually have very old hardware and/or are incapable of spending some time in order to tweak the system for their own use.

    If it´s not dx12 only then it´s microsoft cashing some more w10 userbase. Can´t say i´m surprised.

    I mean, this makes no sense, this game isnt going to make PC gamers change their stance on windows 10.

    This will get massively pirated and sales will be bad.

    Not smart and i expect the devs will most likely pull the "PC gamers are to blame for poor sales" nonsense, as its always our fault for these dumb decisions. right.

    Edit: Derp. Its f2p

    You can't really compare the two. That's like comparing 8.0 to 7 SP2.

    Windows 10 is fine since TH2.

    Face it most gamers are eventually going to migrate to Windows 10. Being a PC gamer and seeing the eventual dominance of DX12, it doesn't make much sense not to especially while it remains free to upgrade. The bigger more important and awesome news here is the first adoption of a cross buy model from console to PC. While I don't really care that much for the Killer Instinct franchise, and won't likely ever be buying a console again, such a model is greatly appreciated. Right now I wish I had this for Rocksmith after my PS3 died, just to get it for PC instead (oh the DLC). Good thing for Steam sales though.

    Windows 10 seemed to decide on its own to put files in people's Onedrive folder this morning, causing FO4 issues, amongst others.

    Wake-up, Win10 auto-updates, FO4 running like crap, see that that new update through all your personal files into some NSA-funded Windows server. :puke2:

    I used OneDrive under Win8, under Win10, I simply don't trust it to respect my settings, so I only use a local account and disabled OneDrive in the registry.

    Was wondering the same... I'd be happy to learn what benefits I get for upgrading right now. Be it win7 or win8.1 (I'm running both on my machines and have been running both on the same rigs), and I see absolutely no reason to upgrade unless either my free upgrade time is coming to an end (June this year iirc) or dx12 and dx12 games really are available widely.

    But maybe I missed something? :)
