Microsoft says new DirectX 11.1 is reserved for Win8 and won't be released on Win7. The most important feature that should persuade us to switch to Win8 is native stereoscopic 3D support, means, no gfx cards with Nvidia 3D Vision or AMD HD3D needed.
Either Microsoft lost the compass (perhaps that's the reason Windows and Windows Live President Steven Sinofsky is leaving http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/news/…ncementPR.aspx ) or they honestly believe a common user cares for that and would buy Win8 because of it.

According to a rumor, multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) genre will get yet another title. We should assume a role of any Marvel hero, team up with other heroes and use his/her powers to beat another team of heroes.
Based on millions that Riot is earning with LOL (League of Legends) this rumor could be true. What Riot did? They made that the only thing in the game you can buy with real money is skins. Your looks. You can customize everything for free, just not your looks.The rest stuff you can buy if you want to, but you can also unlock by playing the game. Unlike 99% of so called F2P that sell PLAYABLE parts of the game, not just skins. There is a bad part of this strategy, while Riot is earning millions, LOL community is probably the worst MMO community out there full of trolls.
The "PK project" game should "see the light" in 2014, and will it be F2P like Riot's child or like upcoming SW:TOR, we'll see.
