For me it simple, If I like a game I buy it.

If the game is maybe a bit meh I wait for the sales.

I got crysis on day one,
Warhead I got on sale,
Crysis 2, I will be watching the legit reviews before I buy.

It may be a console port but at least it runs at 60FPS, at 1080p and with AA. It'll still look better. Just because its a console port is no reason not to buy. While PC Game sales are so low they will put less effort into our version. If more people buy developers will see this and realise that the extra time is warrented because the money is there.

The download try before you by is a tricky one. I just can't see how if someone had a full working version there to play on their PC they would then go out and spend money to have something they already have. Its a flawed argument. Obviously some will do it, but I bet there are far far more that use this as a simple excuse. The developers need to do more PC demo's for the very reason we cant rent games.. SIMPLE!

Yes there are reasons not to by it, it just shows they are not interested in the platform, and would rather make a quick $, instead of making a good quality game.
Lets use Activision for an example, Modern warfare 2?

PC gaming is not dead or dying, not by a long shot:

Remember that "sales" are what the publisher sells to retail stores and places like Steam.

Every trend has outliers, that's just something I've observed and makes sense economically.

This actually worked out well for Blizzard and StarCraft 2, as it was a heavily populated torrent for a time. While they were able to play offline mode, get the story and then ohh, cant play online. Basically after that people started buying keys for the games they already "pirated" in order to play online with others. Actually saved Blizzard the bandwidth space as well lol

Just goes back to, if the product is good enough people will drop 60 bucks on a title.

I'd say a console port is better than no game at all. Think how few PC dedicated PC games there are these days. Companies are here to make $'s not be our best friends. We spend money they'll put in the time. While PC Gaming is in such a poor state it is not beneficial to boycott games because they are not the graphical marvels we expect.

Xbox and PS3 games will play their lower rez versions without complaining. Yet because we spend more on our hardware we expect some dazzling god like version? We get the same experience as everyone else but in higher resolution.. (9 times out of 10).

Think of it this way, you’re a developer. Your smallest customer base is PC, if you wanted to take advantage of the PC’s powers to the fullest all the lower rez optimized textures would have to be re-done (would take an age), characters would have higher Polly counts and DX11 coding/effects would be used This takes a long long time and if the money isn’t there what’s their incentive? Respect?? They don’t care about respect, they care about $$$’s. It’s not perfect but it’s better than nothing.
The more money there is in PC gaming the better our PC games will be. Less Pirates = more money (ignoring the intricacies of 1 download does not equate to one sale as money is 100% lost but its hard to establish how much).

I'm not really interested in graphics I was just using DX11 as an example, that's all I care about is a game that's playable, and is optimised, look at black ops, terrible port, random lag etc.

I would never pirate a game, however if developers just throw crap at us, and then complain that sales are ruined because of piracy, then that's their fault for making a terrible game.

The other thing that pisses me off is the fact that MS and Sony are holding back development with their outdated hardware.
