Oh the time we could hide quake on the lab computers at uni on every PC and run a tournament during a class without the teacher knowing, unless someone yells or get angry he died

Yep, I have a suspicion that we won't see anything truly exciting in PC hardware until after the new consoles release.

There's pros and cons.

I'm very happy to play the new Ace Combat 7 game on PC as Ace Combat 04 was one of my all time favorite games on the PS2 back in the day.

However, the developers did a pretty shoddy job of porting and it took me many days to get a controller to work. Keyboard and mouse controls were no good, and my flight stick just didn't work.

I'm happy to see more previously console exclusive series show up on PC, but my god, give the PC version some more effort.

We felt that for three years the PC was still gaining importance, all the multi console passes on, 100 times more exclusive games, it is confirmed, the dev elected him to the GDC most popular platform.

traditional gaming PC & top tier gaming console are going to merge in the next few years into a truly viable solution. Not quite steambox, not quite Xbox.

Microsoft essentially promised this with the original xBox. While not exactly the same promised concept, Sony too with PS2. 3DO? oh and let me not forget Nintendo, Sega, Colecovision and Atari all promised similar things. I grew up in the Console explosion. I have seen this movie before.

I have a hard time buying into this concept v2.

If anything, with the continued merging of the PS/XB with PC-compatible hardware, you could almost argue that its traditional console gaming that is dead (or at least dying). Sure Sony still has significant exclusives on the PS, but there is nothing about the hardware anymore that prohibits PS games from working on and being coded for a PC (and MS appears to be going all-in on XB/Windows synergy).

I think this is gonna happen, and I see it with 2 heads: Microsoft and Valve.

MS will push Windows/Xbox exclusives, having bought most big indie devs, while Valve will push SteamOS with Proton.

Dang, you beat me to it. I've been hearing the phrase a lot since the 360/PS3 era, I think they're right, PC is completely dead.

Steam users:
Is that a measure of active users? The large dips are insteresting.
