Console is dead that came out of Game Industries mouth! - Page 2

post #11 of 27
Well, you can't argue there are more PC gamers than console unfortunately. From a business perspective the price of making a superior/widely compatible version of an identical product for a smaller profit just isn't good for any business. Which is why "we" will always be the minority. At least possibly until "professional" gamers only use PC and realize being an enthusiast console gamer is kind of like winning the Special Olympics... only worth a slow clap...

At this point I really don't think its unreasonable to expect anyone with a high end gaming PC to also own a 360 or PS3. I know I do and I buy games for all platforms, but I like PC more overall. Furthermore, if you can afford a 360, ps3 as well as a gaming PC then it goes without saying that you probably have more spending power and will buy more games.

I probably would have bought rage eventually but not in the state it is in right now. ID has nothing to cry about, they released a BETA not a game on PC.

i see your point however it is floored! bye a descent PC and it will last longer than a console. my last PC before this one kept up with consoles from Ps1 to the 360! thats 3 generations. go spend £300 a time on your consoles lol for all i care that comes to £900 relatively speaking, from lets say £600 if not less i can build a PC that easily runs the latest games and will be able to for quite a distance into the future!

(the fact that my current PC cost a lot more than £600 is besides the point lol. my last pc cost £650 and lasted 3 genrations)

Then there is the fact that we live in a digital world. How many 360/PS3 owners also own a computer even thou they don't game on it? If they just got a gaming PC to star wit they would not need a console. Of course its a mater of taste some perfer to game on consoles.

http://i.imgur.com/qVwuD.png Entry level gaming PC that'll play games at native 1920 x 1080.

http://i.imgur.com/UFM9p.png Best of the xbox 360 with a 40" 1080p TV. It won't play games at 60fps or a native res. of 1920 x 1080.

I've convinced at least 6 of my friends to convert to PC gaming mostly.

"Consoles are so cheap for the price and quality!" - consolekiddies

Picking up a console just to play it, though? They're great for people who do light-medium amounts of gaming.

Stupid excuse to help console market? Because they have share stock in them they don't want to lose. MS, Sony are forking money to the medias just to bull to other game companies?

Of course there will be driver issues, how many variant system we have in the world. Think about it.

Console players are majorly held by kids from 10-16 years. PC Gamers are likely to be more mature up from 17+ average and older. Because those can only afford gaming system are those who have money or have a job. Kids don't, all their parent buys them console for Christmas and games.

If it weren't for popular games such as gears of war, final fantasy, and modern warfare games, consoles would be dead.
