[POLYGON] Sony boss: PS4 Pro is going after the PC audience - Page 12

post #111 of 644
If you think consoles are dying, you don't have a clue about the game industry. wink.gif There's little money in developing/selling PC games in general, with only a few exeptions (most of them not being AAA titles).

yes. PC gamers are overrating importance and popularity of PC platform. there are only a few franchises and genres that do really well on PC. usually console games outsell PC version 10:1 or even more.

according to windows store, xbox one version of forza horizon 3 is outselling pc version by about 140:1

I use a kangaroo for my living room pc. I also have a decent pc that is far above a console and a large steam library and could only see gaming on pc on my bedroom 4k or maybe sometimes on the projector.
But I'm a grownup.
When I was a kid I gamed on consoles. Consoles had the games I wanted and I could game with my friends easier. It was the same with my son. If my daughter ever wants to give up her tablet games for a console to have friends over for that, I would probably get her one. Kids are conformist in a lot of ways, always have been and always will be. That's who consoles are for. Consoles should worry about phone and tablet gaming more than pcs from what I've seen. Maybe put in a google play store if they haven't already. They could even have a console price premium to make it more attractive to the parties involved.

Unsurprising, as the PC port is trash and there are better driving games/sims already available on PC.

Edit: Or was that FH2? Anyway, I don't expect much.

not exactly sure what you mean? game isn't even released yet, so how do you know that PC port is "trash". and there aren't any other games like this on PC, at least not with this scale and quality.

i think you are confusing this game with something else.

btw, forza horizon 2 was never released on PC.

Yeah...because a game that's not even released yet, released EXCLUSIVELY on the Windows storefront and ONLY available on the WINDOWS 10 ANNIVERSARY edition build of Windows 10...is a real representation of the PC platform

no one was claiming that this is a definitive representative, just one of many proof that games just sell better on consoles.

let's take another example. Witcher 3, AAA PC game, with great dev which is devoted to PC and even that game only managed to sell 30% on PC, 70% sales were on consoles.

Yes, games almost always sell better on consoles, but your ridiculous 140:1 ratio is just garbage, and your FH3 comparison wasn't PROOF of anything

Why do we need consoles? Please tell me because I can't grasp it. Don't say exclusives because that is only a symptom of the console companies trying everything they can not to let consoles die. If consoles were already dead there would be no exclusives, because all titles would be for PC. The day of the consoles death is coming, and once again Im no elitist, Im a realist. If you think I'm an elitist tell that to the 20 or so grand that either I or my parents spent in my life on consoles and games.

I reiterate consoles are only holding us back. They exist for no reason other than to make exclusives and because everyone thinks they can't build a PC. I can't even articulate my argument well on this subject anymore, because I don't know what to say. People are defending consoles like they need to be around and it doesn't make any sense to me.

If you can't admit the entire world would be better without consoles for the following reasons, please tell me why having consoles around is a good thing so I won't be so frustrated anymore.

1. Consoles hold back gaming as a whole by catering, as someone said previously, to slower gameplay because of joysticks, graphics are held back, proper internet play isnt where it should be, etc.
Such big paragraph and you can't even figure out that even if consoles wouldn't exist,there still would be the lower common denominator,aka the cheapest PC you can build to play games.

Both PS4 and XB1 mount an APU quadcore and a GPU from the GCN family. PS4 has a GPU comparable to the 7870 and the XB1 has a GPU comparable to the 7770.

You're desilusional if you think consoles are going anywhere when they still are the cheapest option for gaming.
