Microsoft launches Windows game site

Microsoft launched a new Web site Monday intended to help popularize games made to run on the Windows XP operating system. The Games for Windows site includes how-to articles on game-related topics, a "Game Advisor" to help users find a game that matches their tastes, and downloadable add-ons for popular games.

Gamers have emerged as a key customer segment for the PC industry over the past few years, with Dell and other companies selling specialized PCs targeted at game players and Microsoft teaming up with Yahoo to deliver popular titles.
