Worst Case Scenario for PC Gaming - Page 4

post #31 of 66
Well I'm just here to say I agree with the OP on most parts.

I do believe PC gaming is going away. At least how we know it.

In my opinion which I've let known many a times before, soon the only AAA big budget titles released on the PC will be MMO's, period. Now of course we are talking about the future so I can't prove that by any means. Neither though can any of you dis prove it.

To me the "proof" is in the pudding though. Here we have the head of a company stating something very similar.

Not to mention we are a minority. Sure we all know PC are better then any current gen console, but the masses don't. The masses are also where these companies get most of their money. The masses also whine a lot less then most PC gamers.

It makes perfect business sense to mass produce big budget titles for the console as opposed to the PC. Less piracy, more people who play on consoles and easiser development. Why bother with a million different setups when you can program for 1?

Don't take me saying any of this as saying consoles are better. No, I think PC's are better. I just think more and more money is moving towards the consoles and less towards the PC.

PC gaming will be fine. The only way the industry will go away, is if people stop buying PC's. If people continue to buy PC's there will always be a market there, for someone to capitalise on. With no licensing fees, there is great incentive for people to create games on PC. Especially start up companies. So it will remain as it always has been, the innovative platform.

If people stopped buying PC's how would they code their console games

Just look at minecraft though, what indie game for the xbox has generated that much attention and money without a big budget?

The worset case scenario is we move to console gaming, which is not so bad. I think next gen consoles will have hardware that can support AA, 3D, and whatever news features that are on today's PC. Unless AMD & Nvidia team up to pay devs to actually port games to PC (just like MS pay devs to not port games to PC), we'll see less and less games, that's just business.

I've been gaming on consoles since Pong and PC's since Zork. Every couple of years I hear the same thing:

PC's are dead, consoles will rule. Good thing I didn't hold my breath waiting for this to come true 20+ years ago...

I'm pretty sure the current pc developers and publishers would switch to console-only basis and the indie scene would take over pc gaming.

The amount of key binds and precison accuracy one has with PC controls is not easily matched by a console controller. Some people would rather rotate a joystick in circles and some would rather navigate more precisely by moving a mouse, it all comes down to personal preferance. Game creators know this and thats why they create certain games for consoles and others for PC. There will always be great games for both but some game genres will stick to certain platforms.
