Windows Vista

Kicking off the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas with a bang, Microsoft Corp. today unveiled revolutionary games, technologies and partner support for the first-class gaming platform, Windows Vista.
CES attendees will get hands-on with 15 of the hottest Games for Windows titles, including some of the first games to deliver stunning graphics and gameplay through DirectX 10 that will challenge any game for superiority in visual fidelity: “Crysis” (EA Partners/Crytek) and “Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures” (Eidos Interactive Ltd./Funcom). Gamers will also experience “Shadowrun” from Microsoft Game Studios, the first of many titles that will bring the Live gaming and entertainment network on Windows Vista for true cross-platform gameplay.
In addition, during the CES keynote address, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates and Entertainment and Devices Division President Robbie Bach demonstrated the ease and simplicity of connecting people who play games on a Windows Vista PC to friends who play on Xbox 360 for a cross-platform game challenge with “UNO” (Mattel, Inc.) — one of the many new upcoming casual games optimized specifically for Windows Vista.
