Microsoft has added another eight titles to its Games for Windows portfolio from publishers including Sega, Eidos, Atari, Capcom and LucasArts.

The company also claims that the Games for Windows initiative is helping to drive sales of PC games, pointing to NPD data that showed branded titles accounted for 20 per cent of all PC game sales in the US during November.

"Games for Windows-branded titles were among the most popular Windows-based games purchased as gifts this holiday," said Bob McKenzie, senior vice president of merchandising for GameStop.

"Microsoftâs efforts to revive Windows-based gaming have helped grow the category."

The latest titles to the portfolio are Bionic Commando from Capcom, Conflict: Denied Ops and Tomb Raider: Underworld from Eidos, Sega's Space Siege and Empire: Total War, LEGO Indiana Jones from LucasArts, Microsoft's Train Simulator 2 and Sins of a Solar Empire from Stardock.
