Vista breaking games?
The launch of Windows Vista isn't happy news for all games developers.

Microsoft is on the PR offensive today spreading the word about the newly launched operating system Windows Vista. However casual games developer WildTangent isn't happy about some of the security features in the new Microsoft software.

According to WildTangent, Vista is breaking or disrupting its own games on MSN and RealArcade, Yahoo Games and AOL Games.

Alex St. John, CEO and co-Founder of WildTangent and ironically one of the co-creators of DirectX says that Vista security features are too strict and are breaking many online and casual games.

"WildTangent has spent the last year preparing for Vista," St. John said. "We worked with nearly every major casual game developer to get their games tested and compatible with Vista in our network in anticipation of these problems."
