And console kiddies qq ?
Nothing wrong with being a pc gamer and owning a console.. Just dont pretend that its not a complete waste of money, costing every gamer (not just yourself) in the long run and your gaming experence would not be superior if you could get the "console xyz exclusive" on pc..
Even if you are still forced to use a controller (or choose to) rather than keyboard and mouse.. graphics, audio, ai, level size/complexity could be improved by developers if they developed for pc instead of console and you would therefore get a superior game even if they retain the same gameplay.
Can a "pro console" person please explain to me why if you could get your console games on pc.. why you wouldnt use a pc connected to your tv or multi monitor setup?
You would get better games over all..
Cheeper in the long run..
Usable for more things..
Marketing is the only thing limiting game choice.. They HAVE to release exclusives otherwise they would never sell their inferior hardware.
The flip side is.. If the console consumers stop buying their "exclusives" then those exclusives will stop being exclusive.
When the big 3 realise they arent selling.. the games will get released on multi platform and you could then buy them for pc..
Pc game sales increase, developers stop coding for outdated hardware.. and you get superior games...
QQ all you like. Its still the truth.

You'd see developers pushing for bigger and better games with shinier graphics and looking at higher-end PCs as benchmarks. We're not seeing that. We're seeing poorly ported, low-mid range games being toted as new and shiny on consoles still.

A decent PC would set you back with upgrades, about $1000-$700 every 2-3 years? And how much entertainment do you get out of them ? Not factoring in games in general, But how can they be dead? No matter what you go for, PC or console. it's still a cheap **** way of entertainment.

We are saying if it wasnt for "console gamers" then we WOULD have games with the same content that currently exist. However those games would also look better, play better etc.
To continue my rant: how ignorant are these tossers who think about their little country and nothing else! Have a look at Japan where it is impractical to have a computer because of the sheer density of population! Yeah, let us cull the entire market just so you can get better games when it is down to the people LIKE YOU who decide whether you are going to hold back your PC release because of consoles!Marius wrote:Consoles do help because they open up more markets, and so ensure more funding to development. Investors like that kind of revenue coming from different markets. The PC market isn't big enough to justify some of the investment we've seen... unless your definition of PC gaming is MMOs.
