Yesterday, Activision boss and controversy magnet Bobby Kotick came out in favour of 'open platforms' and 'gamer friendly PCs'. Today, the Games for Windows Live bit of Microsoft are taking a pop at him.

No lie. This is a tweet from the official Games for Windows account.

"Activision To “Aggressively Support” Efforts To Connect PCs To TVs http://cot.ag/bYH9sd << Acti supports PC gaming? Is it April already? ^WA"

Oh, games industry. Don't ever change.

For the record, and for all their faults, Activision have released multiple, well-received PC games in recent years. Microsoft haven't. Meanwhile, on one of their featured gamer pages, still visible on the Games for Windows Live site, a place where Microsoft  feature the very best gaming talent within the Games for Windows community, they show  'Abashima', their former content editor. Who left the company and works for Nintendo.
