I don't know what your point is in mentioning the PC industry taking a step back except to maybe Straw Man my point.
I'm going to take a guess and say you still live with your parents. Have you tried to get a job lately? I've been out of work for 10 months. People are losing their homes STILL. Unemployment has barely moved. Do you REALLY think that the best business move for a VIDEO GAME company right now is to try to sell them $60 for a game PLUS $300 for a GPU/OS?!
As for that second part...Video game companies don't sell GPU's first off. Second off, it's by necessity that they start using the newer technologies available to them (ie DX11) or else they are going to be left behind.
Is it really that hard for you to see why people would be pissed off at crytek? Do you work for them or something? They say they are going to support the PC, they said they are going to be giving us DX11, etc... Yet all I've seen so far is DX9, limited control over the visuals, and "Please press start to begin"...
So yeah, Crytek can go suck one.
