The PC is already 'branded' in that any game that lists some version of 'Windows' requires that the game be installed under such version of 'Windows.'

Microsoft wants to replace 'Requires Windows Version X" with the the 'Games For Windows' moniker. Nothing is really changing here as the same PC's that might have thousands of different parts, all interchangeable via a screwdriver, will run these games. It's just a cohesive marketing tool being employed to firm up the 'PC' as a branded gaming platform in the minds of consumers.

I find it all interesting. From everything I've read so far, I find that I'm on the side of the fence that hopes it will succeed.
If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
