And I'd say there is a war in a sense. PC gamers and console games are in a way competing for the time and attention of game developers. If Devs. were ore focus on PCs gaming rather than consoles, there would be a lot better PC games.
There is no war, PC would clearly win since they have the nukes. The only thing consoles have are training simulators.

Can't argue with the fact that console developers get more money from FPS's. I don't think it's true for every type of game. I'd imagine that developers would have a much larger audience developing for the console over the PC on non-casual games/mmo's.

Still, I don't understand why they would pass up on more money and set us up with a nice pc port.

See, right now, is the end of the life of the current consoles. Granted MS & Sony want to keep it going for another 5 years, but that won't happen.

Graphics evolve. Better stuff comes out. Why would you want to spend your career just programming on 5 year old tech, when there's better and new tech coming out? Not to mention that will make you fall behind when the next conoles get released, since they will be based off of the current tech.

There is a reason the Atari's, the Amiga's died to the PC. It was all about updating componets with new stuff as the tech advanced.

The problem is, MS & Sony went about making their consoles completely wrong. Nintendo, though, on the other hand, did it right. Do you know what they did?

Nintendo didn't take a loss on hardware, while MS & Sony took big losses on hardware, hoping to make it up in software. Which is why they want their consoles to last 10 years, so they can make as much money as they can. They do NOT care about their consumers, and it's apparent.

Programming is a craft, and like any craft, you need to stay current, or get left behind. Programming PS3 & 360 games isn't as current as programming PC games.
The amigas, especially the later models, were hardware expandable even at the cost of games compatibility. Amiga's demise had to do rather with poor and disastrous marketing decisions. Had the ibm pc not dominated, the amiga would have been likely the second candidate to do so and we would all use workbench.

It is just that the switch from 8 to 16 bit was more breathtaking than the evolvement of 3d graphics today.but even then talk about graphics was secondary.

That era was more diverse and groundbreaking for games. Now you only got 3 companies, kinda like a trust.

Normally I'd say great, except for the hypocrisy of the fact that it is run by the very companies that make money from PC gaming.

That's like buying a Honda car because the studies from people paid by Honda say Honda's are better in every single way.

console win because greedy devs go where the money is at, not where the people that buy that are happy.

By this logic all gaming will end up on mobile devices.
if you insert "greedy" after because then it is a much more accurate statement.

That's the point of headlines in a community?

My bad I thought they were used to give a brief introduction to the information.

This article's headline should be "PC could be gaining popularity and support"

I guess I will make a new headline for it trying to get views "Nazi's take over the Google!" For a article about google's logo being red...

Although I am very skeptical of PC once again dominating the market, there seems to be alot more buzz these days about PC making a come back. Hopefully it's true.
