Lol and piracy is supposed to be pc exclusive.

xPhearR3dx1257d ago

Says who? I never remember anyone saying it was "exclusive". It sure as hell is easier to pirate a game and play it successfully on PC rather than it is on 360.

For some reason this actually isn't suprising. Maybe someone has a vendetta out against Epic

raytraceme1257d ago (Edited 1257d ago )

Says all the console gamers who say why a consoles only game won't be on the pc. Help even some devs say piracy is too rampant on pc while raking in pure profits from pc gaming. People are too hypocritical about pc piracy vs Xbox piracy. What's funny though is at the end pc devs rake in way more profits than console devs do.

That's why so many stay away from PC games. U can't make money. Microsoft's big money makers don't go to PC because they can't afford the loss. It really holds PC gaming back and allows consoles to prosper. Until it is somehow contained, PC gaming will take a backseat, which is sad. And now this. Microsoft is skating towards next gen on the back of halo, cod, and this game. Leaks r killing them.

Really, Hacking a PS3 was as easy as running an update, the 360 just needs its dvd drive tinkered with and the wii just needed a modded gamesave,

These games will still be bought regardless of the platform (Xbox, PS3) by those who want to play online. Can't do it with a dodgy copy.

If I actually had an Xbox 360 i would probably download this, play it to get some familiarity with maps, weapons etc then buy it day one for the multiplayer.

Sounds weird but I primarily play online, I nailed the MGO beta for 3 weeks and by the time I bought the game I was a ninja online

@wheresmymonkey

PC you just download, move a crack file and play. Nothing needs to be moded like consoles.

@joab777

Really? Then explain to me why PC has 10x the amount of exclusive games compared to consoles. Piracy is everywhere, but with all the amazing PC deals retailers have been holding (Not to mention Steam sales), devs see a TON of money from the PC market.

For example, Sleeping Dogs is $10 on Gamefly for the Steam version. Console versions are still $30+ I bought Batman Arkham City GOTY for $7 the other week for PC. There's 3 million users playing games on Steam right this second, and that's JUST Steam. Devs aren't making any money of PC games, really? Please.

MS & Sony need exclusives to help feed competition and convince the consumer. It has nothing to do with devs not getting any money.

Most Gears players will still buy it, much differently than what PC casual masses would do IF they were not ignored. Again.

That's the difference. Now cry more. ^^

Bummer! Now I might have to be careful what I read on the internet for spoilers.

Some ahole kept posting spoilers in comment section n4g.com for a while. Ruined a few good games for me.

Wrong. They just can make more money overpricing console games.

Old McGroin1256d ago

Wow, people really think piracy is PC exclusive? Is that argument still bouncing around? To my shame I dabbled in 360 piracy a few years back, could have been 2007, and back then the ISO and torrent websites were absolutely thriving. Anybody who thinks piracy is PC exclusive is only fooling themselves!

On topic, big 360 games always, always, ALWAYS leak at the very least a month in advance, how are people surprised by this anymore?!

well this has happened for every big game on 360 i believe

jeffgoldwin1257d ago

No system is perfect but it certainly is more inconvient on a console. Plus MS has ways to notice if you have a hacked game, so if you try to play it online, they perma ban your console.

PC does have a few tricks up its sleeve to combat piracy, but its no where near as effective. And lots of pc exclusive studios have went bankrupt or been forced to go multiplatform with console releases. That's common news and any google can show articles about pc devs saying the same.
