PC gaming won't die anytime soon IMO. It might see a decline but I don't think it is dying.

QFT!

And they spend more money researching to give us all the best possible experience!

No. PC gaming keeps console gaming alive.

I think all this "hype" (can you call it that?) about PC gaming dying is really nonsense.

I think what happened is that the "next-gen" consoles (meaning Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii) just had so much hype building up to their respective launches and it just happened to come at a time when gaming was making a transition from the fringes of society into becoming socially accepted and normal. As a result, yes, console gaming seems to be doing quite well. However it doesn't necessarily mean that it is doing so at the expense of PC gaming.

I have also noticed among friends that they see PC gaming as something you sort of move up to from console gaming. I know three people specifically who bought an Xbox 360 at launch and now want to get pc gaming systems. I'm not sure how indicative this is of the gaming crowd as a whole, but I felt it was worth mentioning.

The PC is also really the only platform where smaller developers really have a chance to take a risk and innovate. Since there aren't any licensing costs for developing a PC game to set them back if it fails. Not to mention they would have a much larger base of potential customers. Also worth considering are the companies like Nvidia, AMD, and to a lesser extent Intel who have some of their biggest profit margins from enthusiast/gaming hardware. They aren't going to sit still and let PC gaming die and lose all that money.

With starcraft 2 coming out, never, look how well the first starcraft is doing and it came out in 97-98, heh. 10 years ago. And MMOs are dominating the gaming industry right now.
