Microsoft’s 7 reasons why gamers should upgrade to Windows 7

Microsoft apparently wants PC gamers to buy Windows 7, which is funny because they probably don’t want you to couple your purchase with a copy of the PC version of Alan Wake for the time being. Now that Windows 7 is in its release to manufacturers or RTM status however, Microsoft’s noted a few reasons why you should pick it up on Oct 22.

One reason is DirectX 11. Got it. Another reason is multi-touch gaming. Is this a possible sign that we’ll be getting a push from Microsoft to develop more games suited for multi-touch screens? Probably not, but they want you to know that Windows 7 supports that. One notable reason is obvious, there are the classics like, Internet Checkers, which even Microsoft says is, “because you can’t spend all your time hardcore.” Which I’d say, is sometimes the case.
