suppot pc gaming
By buying a console port? you can't be serious. If bethesda actually provided a "pc" copy most people would grab it. They didn't. They ported the
Xbox 360 copy to pc. Sure, you'll be able to amp the details up more, but it's still an xbox port on pc.
How come some ps3 users are having massive load times and slow downs, while others aren't? Those getting slow loads, are you using the Phat ps3 or
and don't tell me it's "all the pirates" as the xbox original was hacked early, the 360 has been wide open since launch, and now the ps3 is wide open
What's killing pc gaming is the deals made between game developers and hardware designers. What's stopping me from buying BF3 for pc instead of ps3?
besides origin, a 400$ video card upgrade. That's right, 1 component upgrade is more than the entire price of a console. Having to continually
upgrade is the problem.
The pc market is now a nitch market that caters to the 10% of pc users with "high end rigs", meaning they upgrade yearly. The rest is crappy console
Yes, skyrim looks epic on the pc compared to the consoles, for the 25% of pc owners with the right video card. They rest are treated to the exact
same quality as the console versions.
BF3 is a great example. Any video card under 400$ just isn't worth it.
Then besides that, you've got the diversity of hardware, ATI or Nvidia, AMD or Intel, dual core or quad core, high speed density ram or not, solid
state drive or mechanical, surround sound, HD sound, stereo sound.
It's literally impossible for a game company to produce a PC game that will "run the same" for everyone.
A console is a level playing field. This generation of consoles is about at it's limit, but the next one will be pretty amazing. and then it will be
old, and pc video cards will surpass it, and people will complain about the "death of pc gaming".
If PC gaming is dead, blame it on the developers not actually making pc copies.
