[TV] AMD won the next-gen console war, and PC gamers could reap the reward - Page 2

post #11 of 13

EA Sports boss Andrew Wilson says that one reason none of its next-gen sports games are coming to PC is because Microsoft and Sony's new game consoles are actually more powerful than many PCs in a very specific, subtle way: "How the CPU, GPU, and RAM work together (hUMA) in concert," Wilson told Polygon.

Not that I have any interest in EA sports games but the terrible excuses not to release for PC are already underway. Note that he states "many" PCs instead of "gaming" PCs, because we all know a $399/499 console won't outperform a decent modern gaming rig in anything. Although the new consoles do pack some punch, you're still getting what you pay for.

This frustrates me so much. I knew it would come to this for many of the big production houses. It has everything to do with the tiny PC market and little money to be made. All I wanted was Madden PC...frown.gif

"Unsurprisingly, AMD senior product marketing manager Marc Diana is also bullish on the PC. "We're struggling to find a name for what used to be called porting, because there's not really a problem with that anymore," the senior product marketing manager told The Verge. "It's a thousand times easier now because it's all x86 based," he said.

But speaking to actual game developers on the E3 show floor, not all of them agreed that x86 would fundamentally change their efforts. "In the end, it's the same amount of work," said Eidos' Nicholas Cantin, director of Thief, a game coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC. Cantin pointed out that the controls are different on each platform, among many other things."

Right...so essentially they just don't want to Dev for PC.
