Microsoft welcomes Ubisoft to the fold and unveils the SideWinder Mouse...

Providing few thrills at this year's Leipzig Games Convention, Microsoft's most notable announcement came from the appointment of Ubisoft as the latest publisher to support its Games for Windows initiative. Joining the likes of 2K Games, Activision, Atari, EA Partners, LucasArts, Midway and SEGA, Ubisoft's first title to feature the branding and features will be The settlers: Rise of an Empire. In addition, Train Simulator 2 will join the 60+ titles currently announced to carry the brand, promising the most realistic train simulation experience ever from Microsoft.

"Today, we and our partners announced several products that dramatically improve the experience - and fun - for Windows gamers," said Kevin Unangst, global director of Games for Windows at Microsoft. "The addition of Ubisoft to the Games for Windows program and the continued innovation in PC gaming hardware is a huge win for gamers around the world who are experiencing the revival of the PC as a world-class gaming platform."

Finally, Microsoft also confirmed the return of its Sidewinder range of PC peripherals. The Microsoft SideWinder Mouse (the first mouse to bear the brand) has been designed to cater for gamers needs, with never-before-seen features uncovered by extensive worldwide research. Features include one-touch access to Windows Vista Games Explorer, Quick Turn - a performance enhancing macro to allow gamers to check their perimeter from wherever they are in the game-, the first ever LCD on a gaming mouse and a cable anchor that doubles as an accessories storage box - nice.

Advanced tuning options allow gamers to create an individual gaming system to personalise the SideWinder mouse, including an adjustable weight tray, changeable mice feet with three materials for glide preference, DPI control and additional software features.

"We're taking gaming mice to a new level with a mouse created in direct response to gamer feedback from all over the world; it offers superior customisation and performance handling," said Bill Jukes, product marketing manager for Microsoft Hardware. "We found that gamers are a lot like performance car enthusiasts. They like to tweak and tune their mouse to get it just right, and today we are giving them the tools to create a personalised experience that lets them focus on what's important: being at the top of their game."

Curious, is that a typo?

"As a publisher, no one is more excited to see the continued growth and evolution of Games for Windows - LIVE than Microsoft Game Studios,"

Should surley read as.

Actually Commodore is indeed a group of people with the name, but unlike previous restarts, this small group actually does pay tribute to the old c64 heritage they hold C64 parties and contests (demo's) and do work with the old enthausiasts. from what I've seen its a small group who really are going for it and i wish them luck

The Spec on the system will make any game run at full setting with ease but the price tag has got to be in the $4000 range,

Hey anonymous that supposedly attended a trade show in the 80's: You haven't learned how to type, spell, or use better grammar in 20 years? And we're supposed to get something out of that garbage post? Plus, you DO realize that Commodore is, and has been for a long time now, a name. And that's all. The name has been passed around a little bit, but none of the same people run anything Commodore related. Any new Commodore we see will be in name only. Like Atari.
