Have reports of PC gaming's demise have been greatly exaggerated?
The latest news regarding PC games sales, up over 200%, along with box-office busting success from Diablo III suggest just that.
Of course, you can certainly make a case for a PC gaming industry on the slide. For starters, much of the mainstream media interest is dominated by the big games consoles. Those consoles are a lot more cost effective than PCs, too.
The purchase price of a console is a small fraction of a good gaming PC. And the life cycle of a console – as much as seven or eight years - is aeons compared to the relentless upgrade cycle of PCs.
