Consoles may not play a part in the future of the games industry, Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinski has suggested, saying that he "sometimes wonders if we'll find ourselves in a PC/Phone/Tablet future."
word up qweefy b it's the code word no matter where you say it, you KNOW that you'll be heard! pc is, and always will be THE place for the hardcore gamer, it is the main nerve center of all that is good in gaming mods, cutting edge graphics, astonishing levels of multiplayer interaction consoles are on the way out, i do think ps4 will come out and maybe a new xbox, after that, most likely not, and the next gen of sony and microsoft consoles will not be anywhere near as successful as this gen, nintendo wii u is going to do very well i think.
Pc gaming is for manchildren
If the PC is so great, why haven't they made a PC2 yet?
They did...it's called the PS3. /s I kid, I kid. Have mercy on me Master Race...MERCY!
I'm a pc gamer and I approve of this comment haha
OMG we are in the future? We already have those things. Ive always felt that no matter how powerful phones or tablets get, we will always be able to cram better tech into something bigger that uses more power like a console and computer. You will notice the same thing with laptops. They have gotten alot more powerfull and alot cheaper but people still buy desktops to get more power into the bigger box that uses more power. Also there will always people who would rather play games on a console than a PC. PC and Console market is mostly different people with some overlap. Ive always played on consoles and PC but very few of my friends played on PC and those ones that did were mostly PC gamers that dabbled in consoles.
Should have found yourselves there some time ago. Gears was brilliant, but I shudder to think what you may have achieved had you optimised yourselves to PC
Cliff, you sound like that you are lost and needs some guidance as feedback from gamers, especially from those ones waiting your next game, with chainsaw gunnas. Yeah, make your games for more platforms; mobile or hardcore, but let your games be special or unique for every releasing platform. Consoles are evolving to a complete home entertainment systems rather than just plain gaming machine.And you will be there with supporting.
well one thing is for sure- sony's future is definitely bleak
I wouldn't be surprised if our next console generation was our last.
i sometimes wonder, why should i care for what this guy say?
Same here. He's into consoles since he can reap millions of dollars out them but he used the PC only to promote the Unreal game engine at the highest setting possible. Sure the Unreal 4 engine look awesome on those high end PC demos but once next gen consoles takes off (with the free to play capabilities) he'll dumped the PC again.
He's into consoles so he can make games on them? What's this "reap millions of dollars," talk? His games sell because, guess what, there AAA. Look up Shadow Complex, look up Gears. Gears basically set a standard gameplay wise this gen for TPS. Fluid gameplay, stop and pop shooting. He uses PC to sell the Unreal Engine, but isn't that the point of the engine? Multiplatform engine? It allows developers to develop games like Mass Effect, Bioshock, etc. on multiple consoles with ease.
"phone/tablet" The lack of precise controls makes games on these platforms such a waste.
I like a lot of things this guy says in relation to video games. i just don't like seeing his face.
I think he's in love with PC or Tablet these days..
Is this Cliffy guy serious? PC gaming has and always been there on top of the gaming food chain. Don't even compare PC to phones and tablets. LOL! Dota 2, Counter Strike, WOW, PC gaming is very alive since the birth of XBOX LOL!
Hey cliffy, you're my boy. But, stop talk like patcher. You will make your games for what ever systems gamers prefer to game on.
He's a narcissist and has issues with his ego. Case in point: one of the main reasons he gives for liking where he lives was that everyone talks about the mediocre company he works for. He just loves the attention. lol.
Microsoft *cough cough*
