MS and Sony spend millions or maybe even billions to promote their platform and pay developers to not release a PC version (Heavy Rain, Alan Wake), we as gamers really can't compete with that. So if we can't beat them, join them. Get a console for all the console ports.
and we get games they will never get.
Age of decadence, The witcher 2, Red orchestra 2.
The sooner AAA publishers drop PC gaming, the sooner independent studios can create AAA products and not have to worry about having to out market the AAA publishers.
I dont really want to promote piracy, but perhaps if we steal enough, we can get activision/ea/whoever else to stop making PC versions. Because the second they stop, we will have mod teams and independent studios galore that will step in to fill the void with better games.
If you have seen the latest video of hawken, or perhaps intersteller marines. You dont need a High profile Studio and a 50 million budget to create game. I seriously. COD has been using the same engine code for how long now, where the hell do they blow all that money, its not on building a new engine, its not on improving the graphics, or creating new gameplay.Edited by Vhati - 4/1/11 at 8:05am
