I agree with this all the way.

Piracy is just an excuse for them to ignore us.
I know of many people in person who pirate their games on console as well.

I have had numerous friends drop pc games...

in their words

"if they are just going to make the games for the consoleand port them over, I am going to go hack my xbox360 and play them there"

These were people that had many many games on steam (paid for) that just felt they were getting screwed over.

Music industry said this same BS but music sales are also on the rise. Bad games kill the PC industry, not piracy.

The school system is what I am most worried about after reading your WALL OF TEXT.
Look at the new games, especially Crysis 2. That is proof right there that a PC loving company turned against the PC users because of pirating and they found a way to make more money on consoles.


That wall of text comment is irrelevant to what i'm trying to talk about.

nksharp has a point about the bad pc games are hurting the industry. its pretty much the same copied fps after another. if its that bad, the game pretty much deserves to be pirated.

The wall of text hurt my eyes; try organizing your posts in the future.

Also, I think your post is based off of incorrect points. Piracy has been around for quite a long time; people started speaking of the death of the PC years ago, and it's still going strong. I honestly couldn't care less that a large portion of development shifted focus to the consoles, because the developers that have stayed with our platform are generally solid. We still have a fantastic line-up of games in our near future, and they won't be garbage console ports.

Developers didn't move to the consoles because "we didn't support them." They certainly try to listen to the community and develop communication, but that definitely does not dictate how they develop. They shifted to the consoles because consoles are easier to develop for and much more widespread than PC gaming; that means lower overhead and higher profits. It's all about the money.

EA recently said that the PC might become their greatest market. I don't see that as a prediction of death. Do you?

If they really feel the need to stop it then they need to shut down torrent sites with their games on them.
So if you ran a business would you market your product towards a base that is profitable, or towards a base that is not profitable? You make it seem like its a simple choice to invest millions into developing for a platform that they don't expect to make a quarter as much return on if they develop for a console platform. Why would they do this, just to make a few of us happy? Business is business, you do whats profitable. And its only as profitable as long as we are willing to pay for it. And if half of us prefer to pirate it rather than pay for it, then investing in us is a bad business choice.

Don't blame the publishers, think about what makes them make such decisions. It isn't lazy of them. If marketing and developing more for the PC was profitable, they would do it more. So why aren't they doing it? The answer is simple, because it isn't as profitable as developing for the consoles. Now ask yourself why?

Now go back to the original question, if you were in their position, why would you waste money on us?

Look at how well indie games like minecraft sold last year. I could have EASILY pirated it since I don't believe it even has drm but I bought it because I enjoyed playing it and it was an original game.

In some odd turn of events call of duty franchise keeps pumping out reskin versions and making millions upon millions (over a billion for the last one I believe).

If BF3 is half as good as I am expecting it to be I can see a lot of new console to pc converts coming.

Piracy doesn't figure. Consoles get the raw end of the stick, more expensive games. Eye wateringly expensive DLC. Some of which is actually in the game from the start. PC gamers are being let down of course but console gamers are being exploited left right and centre. Games are getting so short nowadays as you can cut out chapters and sell it on later.

How are PC gamers going to ask for outstanding utilization of cutting edge technology and want it cheaper than consoles?
