PC on Top? A Look at the Known Platform Exclusives of 2013 - AusGamers

AusGamers has produced a feature looking at the platform exclusives of 2013, and while they concede that it's hard to fully gauge without official knowledge of both Sony and Microsoft's next-gen plans, the clear winner overall is the PC.

From the feature:

"A new year means new games, lots of them. The avalanche of high quality releases continues to have momentum, making the last few years some of the best that our industry has experienced. 2013 should be interesting for a couple of reasons. Foremost, you have the Wii U, a newcomer console that is embracing current performance specifications while introducing yet another new (Nintendo) way of interacting with games via the tablet-like GamePad. This year may also, if the rumours are to be trusted, see announcements made regarding the next (next) generation of consoles from Microsoft and Sony. Then you have the PC, which -- despite all doom and gloom of the last couple of years -- stands at the beginning of what could very well b... (3DS, Bayonetta 2, DayZ, God of War: Ascension, Killzone Mercenary, PC, Pikmin 3, PS Vita, PS3, The Last Of Us, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I love my ps3, 360, wii, ds, psp, ps2, iphone and gaming pc all like children

but just like all parents do, (they just would never tell you) we all have our favorites

if i could only choose one platform it would hands down be pc

heck i can play all my ds, wii, ps2 and ps1 games ON MY PC up to 1080p! ( wii and ps2 in 1080p with 8x aa at 60 frames)

so its really like 10 consoles in one with all the epic pc games not possible on consoles and the best visuals without question

that said, I like having the main sony and main ms console too, for amazing games like halo 4, uncharted 3, killzone 3, gears 3 ect...ect...ect.....

for me pc is my favorite followed closely by ps3 and 360

though, ps2 may be my favorite console, but, now that kinda falls under pc, since i am playing kingdom hearts 2, nightmare of druaga and shadow hearts covenant all in 1080p on my pc!

Hey good for you!

But I'd rather not pirate games. Playing games on their respective systems simply has a much better feel to me than emulating them on PC, no matter the resolution.

It kinda sounds like you're saying that the main reason you prefer PC better is because it can emulate games from all those other consoles. Meaning that without those other consoles PC would have nothing to emulate and a lot less games in the first place... like a leech.

is it piracy if the games can no longer be bought? Is it piracy if you own a copy? Emulation in itself is not piracy. It depends on how you get the copy.

dude...i own all those consoles, and the games i emulate...its not piracy to play them on another (much better) system.....

i wouldn't risk a virus dl'ing games....i make copies of MY OWN games, or with pcsx2 i just play right from the original ps2 disc

and pc by itself has 20x more exclusives than ps3/360 combined!
