"Project Lead Joris-Jan van‘t Land offers his take on the market for PC games."
This is the same argument the last generation of console systems. That's why they're consoles! to keep comparing them to PC's is ridiculous. PC Gamers love to point the finger at Consoles and call them antiquated. The next console should be made with nano-tech that assimilates new technology so we don't have to cycle every 3-5 years.
and conversely PC's don't offer PlayStation® exclusives which make it so appealing.
Thing is, for every PS exclusive, there are also plenty of PC exclusives. The freedom is much more desirable for devs.
it's there loss really if they think a 100+ million install base (over the entire next-gen cycle) is not worth there time. then it not worth there time.
no offense but with the entirety of the ps3 install base. The exclusives don't sell well at all compared to Multiplats
here we go... another pc vs console article I expect such topics to come from fanboy gamers... it's unfortunate when it comes from a fanboy lead developer.
I can also add this : http://www.youtube.com/watc... ps no offense ... its only for joke :D
"flexibility, tinkering, modding and customization" didn't I hear the devs saying something about that it because of the level of access that Arma permits with mods that it allows hackers to exploit the game?
That's the only arguments consoles gamers have: "exclusives" They don't even sell as much as people making them out to be. http://i.imgur.com/xBGRn.jp...
You know that someone is going to retort with a link to a massive list of PC exclusives that are 90% half-baked indie games, right? Every time someone says "(specific) exclusives" as a reason that some people like consoles, someone always does that. As if someone liking exclusives on one system negates that others like exclusives on another.
I'm fine with consoles not having the same features a PC offers; otherwise they would all be boring copies of each other. And honestly, it seems the next gen consoles are very well on the way to warrant their very own appeal.
Nope, as a console gamer i dont like Arma. Shades of operation flashpoint. Nope, the game has no chance of selling well on the bigger market that is console busines. Console gamer's will not shed tears for this game not coming to console market. It don't even look that good either. I hope i haven't offended PC gamer's. Im just stating my opinion.
Yeah day z could not exist on console. But it could now after pc. But maybe sony will allow mods? lol Publishers will jump ship maybe. DLC rules all. @ijust2good "Nope, as a console gamer i dont like Arma. " I remember when the lead devs literally said Arma is to hardcore for consoles. Arma3 would sell like crap on console imo. Needs kill streaks & perks for u guys. Also as of now pc has the best browser for controllers made by valve.
I own a PS3 and I hate kill streaks and perks. That's like me saying all PC games are shit as they all need mods. But we both know that isn't true is it?
User mods are what I find most appealing about pc gaming. If I could afford it, I'd game on PC, alas I'm too thrifty for that. That plus nothing beats couch co-op gaming and PC is a bit anti social in that regard.
mods arnt all there cracked up to be for all the good ones (that eventually become games) there's a ton of crap
Never heard of Big Picture Mode, eh? You'd be surprised at all the budget priced couch co-op games for PC. Dungeon Defenders, Borderlands 2, Serious Sam, Trackmania, Shank and Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing are just a few games off the top of my head that support couch co-op play. The more you know...
User mods is what makes games on consoles suck.
So wait, you're saying, if a game does not have MOD support, it sucks by default? Wow. Said it like a true gamer. /s
I'm saying games that allow or permit mods in competitive play is the reason why gaming on console suck. That's one of the main reasons you don't see cross platform competitive gaming too often. Ex. GOW mods ruin the online experience for truskill gamers.
nothing beats couch co-op gaming... Have you heard of LAN parties and Counterstrike? On my last night at my previous workplace, we had a 12 (6v6) players match between the new workers and the old. How can the PC be anti social when I get to meet new people?
Oh boy this won't end good. *Slowly backs out of the room* http://youtu.be/_AOeSrLCD-U...

"We're all in this thing together...we gonna work it out, we gonna work it out". Love that song :0)
Sony should add mouse and keyboard support on the PS4 problem solved? ;)
If M$ or Sony allowed mouse and keyboard out the gate no restrictions. I'd probably buy their console.
Some games on PS3 allow mouse and keyboard support. Counter Strike is one of them. Edit: But then again, Counter Strike is a PC game.
Let me correct your spelling.... M$ or $ony......8D They should stop crippling developers creativity and let them run wild and free...The way things should be.....
It was on the PS3. And Epic proved that mods could be applied to UT3. So the problem *WAS* solved, and nothing was done.
Ive wondered why they dont do this myself. Its not like its a technical issue, they just have to want to do it. It would be a big plus for the shooter crowd and even draw PC gamers into consoles. In fact if one console had it and the other didnt, it would be seen as a big advantage.
I cant arsed to release my game on consoles so please buy a $1000 pc and play my game please please
Way I see it.... PC gaming is like living in a luxurious mansion. Console gaming is like living in a nice cosy 3 bedroom house. ....I used to live in a mansion once, but I fell behind on the mortgage :))
People Only Buy ARMA for Zombies So Shut It.
That's why I bought it I haven't even played the actual game only the dayz mod
