[TweakTown]Ubisoft: console makers are 'pressuring them' into 30FPS for PC - Page 23  

post #221 of 226
I sure wish we knew who's behind this. Is is MS, Ubi, why? Instead we get to read about interviews and Twitter feeds trying to sort out the truth.

It's a shame threads like this exist. Gaming has become Hollywood.

It was really put into motion back with like Epic (I Love Unreal but really Epic pushed hardcore for consoles and console only games after they got into the Gears of War stuff), and a few other companies back in the day when both CPUs and GPUs were changing so much, that keeping up with them on a software level as far as a game engine goes was not feasible. The best way to design games since 2002 till around 2008 or 2009 (though I'd say the 2002-2006 years were the worst as far as the console-push) has been easier for companies to design around a single spec'd piece of equipment with hardware capabilities equal across the board instead of keeping up with the changes in computer hardware technology. That way no users are getting a better or worse experience than the others, no one sacrifices things to have better graphics, etc. But after Epic and other engines build for consoles, sometimes the secondary people who were using the engine would get caught up in the console only mess, and it's become more and more common. Guess there's a lot of extra funding to get a project done or underway when you're under the wing of Sony and/or Microsoft to develop a product solely made for consoles. There has to be incentive not to port to PC.

Today it'd be easier to upgrade on occasion to the hardware, we've seen that the jumps between CPU generations isn't like it used to be, even GPUs are slowing down as far as how large the gaps are on improvement between generations. This is to be expected anyway, as there are both limitations to silicon and companies want to focus on optimization of the current technology, as having optimized tech makes transition easier I imagine. Still, it wouldn't be as difficult for game creators to keep up with hardware, or just ignore the hardware update altogether if they don't have the resources or time to deal with optimizing and changing the engine for that feature. Either way, hardware can easily keep up with ports...

There are only one or two reasons to buy a console

One- it's small
Two- we get more exclusives/it's cheaper/fits a shelf/same (ugh) trash DLC/play with friends/uses kb/m (yes it does)/warranty on whole package/no upgrading needed/lay in bed and play/we are taking over the world while pc is getting left behind/wireless/developers like console more/we smell better/other good things like no one likes pc any more

The bad- lesser graphics quality

Is that your Subaru in the pic?
If so, how would you like to have it so that all spare parts are semi-broken and engine output half as much HP as it should, firing on three cylinders more often than four, fuel tank is leaking, and if you fix it, there's a plug that starts making it leak somewhere else because it's a feature (XBL/PSN+$$$$$), don't forget that the seats other than the driver seat are removed because only one person per car.
Window is always blurry and window wipers doesn't work.

That how it feels like owning a high-end PC when nothing truly works, everything is dumbed down and draconian DRM applied upon another DRM.
Oh and don't forget removed features that was there from the beginning since all trailers and trailer gameplay are run on PC, then torn to pieces and stuffed into the consoles.

TL;DR
It's complaining, not whining, some have standards, some enjoy the feces that they get served with.
Uhh.. Thing

There is nothing constructive in this thread any longer.

Since we can't seem to discuss without putting each other in a certain group and then trading insults, locked.
