This Microsoft Solitaire Trailer Is Quite Weird: “Xbox Live? Don’t You Need an Xbox for That?”

Remember the old Windows Solitaire? Those around my age probably played quite a bit of it when it was one of the first games included in the first versions of Windows.

It was a nice little time waster alongside Minesweeper, before political correctness turned it into Flower Garden.

The newest version for Windows 10, Microsoft Solitaire Collection is… quite different, and today Microsoft released a trailer that gives us a glimpse on how Microsoft advertises casual games to non gamers.

Cue weird jokes, cheesy acting, the mention that Xbox Live works without an Xbox One and more. If you want to open a window on the life of non-gamers, the key is below.

Do try not to cringe too much.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
