[MaxPC] 12 Ways Consoles Are Hurting PC Gaming - Page 2  

post #11 of 126
if gta 4 was a pc exclusive, then it would have needed to sell about $100 million to break even because their estimated budget on that game was $100 million. can you imagine pc gaming buying $100 million worth of gta 4 and then more to cover marketing and other stuff?

Greedy corporations is what's hurting pc gaming not consoles
PC games have higher standards than console games. Those standards are rarely met nowadays. Hence the b 1 tching.

Okay, whiny princesses aside, the fact is that the current consoles are outdated tech. PC tech is still progressing as normal, but for what point?

By the time DX11 is full supported on the "next-gen" consoles PC's will be using DX15 and we'll have 32-core processors and 128GB of RAM and graphics cards with 10 billion transistors, and a console of the future will have the power of a gaming computer from today.

The cycle continues, the stronger platform is limited by the weaker.

You mean like Starcraft 2? Last I could find it sold 7 Million units. Presuming a Gross profit of $30 a game that equates to $270 Million. So yes making a great PC game equals profit. Making junk equals low profits.

These guys saying "PC GAMERS ARE A BUNCH OF WHINERS" really don't get it.

Our words have power. Do you think if we didn't moan about the lack of dedicated server support in Modern Warfare 2, Black Ops would have them? Of course not. When we complain, even without our wallets it does make an impact on developers.

It's at the point now where, as mentioned in the article, a developer making a multiplayer game announces it has dedicated server support. Why? Because of our protest. Immediately said developer is looked down upon and the game is called a console port if it lacks that feature.

Let me pose a simple question, if we don't complain at all about the horrid controls and the lack of mod tools, DirectX 11/High resolution textures in Crysis 2, what's the likelihood we'll get a patch giving us at least some improvement? I'll tell you, none, zip.

Now if everyone across all the PC Gaming forums are outraged, and several sites publish articles saying "Crytek drops the ball on PC Gaming." etc, especially to the point where many won't buy the game we're MUCH more likely to get a patch. And that's the goal here.
