Stop making horrible console ports – a guide

PC Gamer - Broken menus, wonky mouse controls, single figure framerates – this is the familiar story of PC gaming prowess held back by consoles. We understand why it happens: console-land was where the majority of sales were, and thus the focus of development. But that reasoning has never seemed, well, reasonable: a trashy console port can knock a chunk off your Metacritic rating, sour a huge potential audience against you forever and lose you loads of sales on a platform that can be extremely lucrative if only you know how to approach it. (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

meh, 99% of games are great on pc. People just like to complain so much these last few years. I mean they are picking on something as obscure as binary domain... And I hate the term console ports, its multiplatform gaming. PS3 gamers dont call their games 360 ports...
