Battlefield 3 Chain Reaction?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Maybe I am just being silly but I had an idea. I do not agree with any statement that says PC gaming is dead or is dying. But I do agree that companies leave our community in the dust by porting games to the pc from consoles and adding barely noticeable differences saying "there you go technically it looks better". I am tired of looking at a comparison and seeing a leaf on the ground that isn't in the xbox 360 (the "technical" difference). Thats an insult not an improvement. But I see a light in the near future . Maybe... and yes it is just a pc gamers hope... If WE, the PC community come together and support BF3 and buy the game. Even if it doesn't seem like your style of game it may set off a chain reaction showing other companies there is money to be made in our community, and game quality will increase, therefore we buy the games and everyone wins . This is my dream. They say there is no money in pc gaming, I say there is no reason for us to buy your crappy pc version, if they make good games (put in noticeable effort), we buy.

Or the developers can just put out whatever quality titles they want to consoles and still make a lot more money, than if they devoted more effort into a great PC game.

Sure if other developers could see that if you make a great PC game first, and consoles second, it can be a viable business plan. It takes a lot more work to develop well across all fronts though. Easier to develop a single game of decent quality, ported to the other platforms, than to develop separately coded games of excellent quality.

I don't really know if some revolution will take place. I see indie games are kind of taking up slack in the pc gaming market, filling voids that weren't even known to be.

It pays to be a console-first developer, rather than a pc-first developer. Unless the game is absolutely amazing on the PC, just publishing to consoles will probably bring in more money without the hassle.

The pure insanity of 32 vs 32 in BF2, and BFBC2 looks so great and is a laugh too, its like a big crazy party.

Good thing BF3 will be 32 vs 32 on PC. I have very high hopes for it...

I just hope they can keep the graphics and all advancing, with out running into ISP limits... I have about 15 Mb/s DL, and only 1Mb/s UL

And I am glad to see that there is already a big multilayer separation between consoles and the pc, 24 player games for consoles and 64 for pc... That is a huge difference plus larger maps I think it is going to be pretty epic. You can definitely see they are giving it there all and you can also see they are getting a response, a positive response. I am not saying to forget about the consoles but why cant games be coded for the pc and down scaled to the console, I guarantee it will bring them more money.
