We have been continuously following Windows 8 news , but none the less Microsoft have much more astonishing products to amaze us. One of them is Kinect , which have created a Guinness World Record as well by selling average of 133,333 units per day . This number has outbeaten record of Ipod or Ipod sales as well.

ZDNet Stephen Chapman just revealed one of Microsoft’s internal video that suggests new era of Windows Gaming. This internal video is from year 2010 and is WGX (Windows Gaming eXperience) team’s ambitions for next-generation gaming between Windows, Xbox Live, and mobile platform.

Adding from Stephen :

For those of you who are unfamiliar, WGX is an internal Microsoft team comprised of all gaming-related endeavors between all of Microsoft’s platforms. Though the video is from 2010, this is the closest look we have had yet at exactly what WGX’s vision is.

This is what Microsoft posted at a LinkedIn Job post :

The Windows Gaming Experience (WGX) Team is a very passionate team embarking to create a new world-class gaming platform that comes alive in the presence of services and leverages the power of the PC to help define the next generation of Windows and Web gaming to 300 million potential customers. WGX team is realizing its strategy via the delivery of Windows and Web gaming solutions built upon existing available services (internal and external to Microsoft) as well as building as needed Azure-based services to enable this vision.

We are at the early stages of defining and architecting and developing excitement around gaming in Windows and the Web. We have a highly visible company-wide charter to promote gaming and empower game developers to create compelling, immersive, rich experiences in Windows and on the Web. We are on a mission to make games a first-class citizen in Windows through our efforts and in collaboration with other groups across the Interactive Entertainment & Devices (IEB) division.
