if you mean new PC game, not unless the developer or publisher confirms it. Not many developers still use it though; Capcom is the only major one I can remember offhand.

I am not sure what you mean. In the title you are asking for Windows Live in New games, & in the thread you are asking if a New PC will have Windows Live capabilities. Either way, here are both answers:

  • For Games: It is up to the Publisher if they want the game to use Windows live as a digital rights manager. If they do, that game will be Associated With Your Windows Live ID, which is basically Your Microsoft account, mail account, Xbox Live account et cetera. And it will also increase Your total gamescore for Your gamertag. There is no certain way of knowing this before an official statement from the Development or Publishing team.
  • For machines: If the machine uses Windows as an operatingsystem then you will have easy Access to Windows Live Applications, further focused With Windows 8 operatingsystem.

No one will use Steam the other will use Origin if you just mean achievements. But both will 99% likely be configured for the Xbox controller

@koobz2142: Im the same wish all PC games had the option, the Dirt games, both the Batman games, the Dirt2 and 3 and Bulletstorm are PC games I've gotten chevos from. Fallout 3 and GTA IV have them aswel.
