Microsoft and pc gaming (2)

Yesterday I wrote about Microsoft and pc gaming. Today I read news article on Slashdot about DirectX 10.1. This new version of DirectX 10 will add XAudio2 to the pc. XAudio2 is used on the XBOX 360 for sound processing and will replace DirectSound as the main sound control.

This is clearly a sign Microsoft will try to integrate the development of windows based pc games with XBOX games.
