He didnt name names, but I think we all know what Turn 10 is working on right now.
Just so people know. The universal app model uses the WinRT framework. The universal app model is a superset of what is currently the Windows 8/8.1 Modern app model. Windows 8/8.1 started the universal app model but it was much more restrictive because Windows Phone and Windows had a much more divergent codebase.

The universal apps will have expanded WinRT API support. But these universal apps are not Win32 apps which are what most PC games are. In fact, they're still deciding whether they will include Win32 apps in the Windows Store. Currently, Win32 apps can be in the store but only as links to external sites rather than direct download.

I found SpaceOrb 360, a dream controller for Descent. I really had a blast playing it with that. Years later I discovered that a friend's son was playing the game (he and his kids were still into the older PC games); I had a new one still in the box and I gave it to him.
