[bf3blog]DICE explains why consoles are limited to 24 players - Page 13

post #121 of 125
lol.

PC's were never intended as gaming devices?

No, PC's were not originally intended to be gaming devices, roughly three decades ago. Many of the rigs on this forum were purpose built gaming platforms. And they're pretty good at social networking too! Through, like, Facebook, Myspace, Google+, Steam, and uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh XBoX Live.

A console is a lean, streamlined, dedicated gaming device. It wasn't originally intended as an internet browser either. Guess machines can be adapted to other tasks, huh?

Once people give pc gaming a chance, and they learn about the computer, learn how to game with it, and learn how to manage it, there is no better platform to play on. Consoles do not cut it and never will.
Which is no reason to be disrespectfull about console games. Like you said they don't care. Perhaps hard to understand but some people do not build PCs and / or don't have the money to build a mega PC to maximise their gaming experience. Some people just want to buy a small box with controllers and be fine to play games for 5-7 years and do it again. No fuss, no nothing, just put in the disk and play games.

At the end of the day wether both parties want to admit or not both platforms have their pros and cons. But disrespecting eachother is utter BS. Just be happy with what you like and care less about what others like.

Exactly. I'd say ; '' i dont understand people who have multi-monitors and ****, because hey there is a life outside and i dont need this geek things, i'm goin to f. somethin'.


I'm 32 years, i'm married and i have kids.. I was PC gamer, but right now simply i cant have all those things and change hardware all the time. I dont have space for PC and things either.

The stupid frases '' PC Gamer/ Console Gamers'' are ok, but if u use it in sense like we are '' PC Gamers'', we own the world, well those people are just retarded and dont understand a life. Its easy to be a ''PC Gamer'' when Mummy and Daddy buying things.

Speak for yourself. I despise people that pirate content.
