Microsoft unveiled some pretty interesting things during GDC but something we didn't see coming was a praise to Steam.

During a panel at the Game Developers Conference Phil Spencer praised to Steam on what they have done for PC gaming over the years. "They've been the backbone of PC gaming for the last decade." said Spencer. "As a Windows company, I appreciate what they've done."

Later during the panel, Spencer stated that PC gamers can expect "more focus" from Microsoft in PC gaming in the time ahead. Spencer also quickly followed his response by stating that Microsoft doesn't plan to compete against Valve, but said "it's important to invest in [PC gaming] in a real way."

With Valve now taking on consoles with it's upcoming Steam Machines, Spencer simply commented that it made sense since Valve already has an established storefront and 65 million users.

At the end he wrapped things up saying we will see "tier-1" initiatives for PC gaming from Microsoft  beginning this summer, but did not specify what those things were.
