Over 175 games on Steam, its also the most cost effective platform. No worries about my games not being playable whenever i decide to upgrade.

Imo PC gaming is the last bastion of hope for gamers who dont want to be ruled on by some greedy corporation.

Every time a corporate giant has tried to take advantage of gamers on this platform its back fired.

Activision removes dedicated servers for COD- PC gamers retaliate, servers are back.

Ubisoft implements always online DRM- PC gamers revolt, DRM is gone.

Microsoft tries to charge for online- PC gamers ignore their service, MS fails PC online remains free.

On the console side, consoles gamers are hand tied behind their backs. They cant do anything about corporate decisions.

MS charges for online - console gamers pay up.
MS and Sony charge 60usd per game - console gamers pay up.
Sony charges for online - console gamers pay up and some even make it look good lol.

Bottom line PC gaming is the last line of defence gamers now have against large corporations, since no one can control it and its an open platform. Publishers hate the PC platform since taking control of it so difficult, Hell its a tough time selling DLC on PC because of mods.

a mcdonalds representative says burgers are the best meat to eat.

Dee_911140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

well that will explain the strong PC showing at the biggest gaming convention this year

Its not more or less important.Hop off that pedestal.

and lmao at that chart.
Add Phones to it and that would crap on both pc and consoles software revenue, does this mean Phones are the most important gaming platform?
"Titan has two and a half times the power of the PS4′s GPU"
Two and half times as powerful 10x the price hmm
Just stop nvidia.

starchild1140d ago

Nope. Phone game revenue is lower than consoles and PC. Look it up.

Dee_911140d ago

rather it is or isnt my point still stands
Its a no brainier that PC sales more games digitally than consoles, they are just picking stuff the PC is stronger in to brag.Very childish

@decrypt
Starting to think this guy works for Nvidia. Every article with a hint of pc and consoles he jumps on it asap lol. Really tho. Who cares....
"Gaaaaaaayyy!!!!, pc'z teh bestesssssst of all tingssssss tat playsssss video gamezsssssss" You guys are hilarious. Every thing Nvidia says you guys are on it in full Galaxy Defender gear. Not all tho. Jus him and his political teabaggers. I have a pc and im sure that anyone with common sense knows the limitless possibilities of the pc. I also love my console of choice. Im so happy we dont have tech street gangs and console street mobs... They would give the crips and bloods a run for their money... I can see it now...
Crips hanging on the corner chilln, probably planning their next move on some bloods around the way... A geek squad car hits tha corner. Jus so happens one of the crip guys drinking a Mountain Dew with the XB1 promotion on it. They dnt pay the geek squad car any mind because aint no G's finna rool on em in a geeksquad car. Car slows down and out comes a 1984 computer monitor killing one guy instantly. While the passanger flings used video cards causing amputations and very bad cuts.... decrypt is driving off sayn FUCK THA PO PO!!! KEYBOARD AND MOUSE BITCHESSSSS!

SimCity and Diablo 3 always on line. PC gamers still play them.

tarbis1140d ago

I no longer play Diablo 3 after finishing the story and I don't even want to touch SimCity. And I'm a PC gamer. LOL!

tsn1140d ago

Wrong, Diablo 3 is by far the worst game blizzard has put out due to greed barely anyone is playing it, for a blizzard title that is hard to believe.

Same thing with valve and csgo valve made it casual and its the least played cs title.

Dots creator made sure that valve would not interfere with the director of dots 2 valve tried to make it casual etc, since valve did not get their way dots 2 is the highest played game on steam.

Casual and selling out does not work on pc it just backfires.

Dee_911140d ago

As a guy that spends his night watching Simcity walkthroughs ( alot of them dont even play any more ) I can tell you EVERYONE of them hates the fact that its always online and EVERYONE of them had atleast one episode where they had to stop recording and wait for the servers to get back online.
You sound like EA.Just because they play them that doesnt mean they enjoy the DRM.They are only dealing with it.

decrypt1140d ago

@SexyGamerDude

There is one key difference yes PC does suffer from publisher greed. However understand at any moment a publisher can take on the PC community and try to implement something rediculous like always online. However that doesnt make it a combined decision on all the games sold on PC. Its just that one publisher, once a back fire happens the publisher will back off.

On console if MS or Sony takes a decision then it pretty much applies to all games. Sony took a decision for online being pay to play, now its applicable for any game on the PS4. Its not limited to 1-2 games. Its on everything.

Hence there is a difference. PC is a open platform hence it gets the advantage of not being controllable by any single entity.

I knew you were going to be here lol.

malol1140d ago

whole i like Nvidia graphics cards and i do buy them.
im sure they are butthurt that they are left out this console gen

i mean that's alot of green that they just lost.
but at the end of the day its all business.

hellvaguy1140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

"im sure they are butthurt that they are left out this console gen"

I doubt it. They are already a multi-billion dollar company and didn't want to whore out their chips by selling them for pennies of profit. At some point when your that successful, its just not worth the effort.

malol1140d ago

there is never going to be something like "enough money"

and AMD is the biggest Nvidia competitor ever, that fact it self is enough to make them feel bad and angry.

hellvaguy1140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

True but there is such a thing, not worth the effort for what your getting paid. For example, I'm a trademan, making over $32/hour, do you think I would even remotely consider a part-time minimum wage job? I'll give you a clue, the answer is not even slightly yes.

malol1139d ago (Edited 1139d ago )

if making consoles and selling them is "not worth the effort", no one would've done it in the first place.

this includes the parts too of course.

hellvaguy1139d ago (Edited 1139d ago )

Consoles do not make money until years later. Generally sold at a loss for the first several years. So the parts aren't going to have much profit either.

They make money from selling the games silly goose. Thought that was common knowledge. Been alot of articles on that if you google it.

Loving that Simcity right?

Also, enjoying subscription fees?

aliengmr1140d ago

What subscription fees?

That your PC slam or something?

aliengmr1140d ago

"Microsoft tries to charge for online- PC gamers ignore their service, MS fails PC online remains free."

That lasted a couple days at most.

MS failed so hard with GFWL that they literally gave up.

fr0sty1140d ago

It is the most important platform to them, since it's the only one that they can manage to get their hardware into.

SITH1140d ago

I am a PC gamer, and I have been playing Xbox live since the day the beta test kit arrived many years ago. The delusional belief a PC gamer does not play on any console or ignore xbox live is ridiculous.

Cuzzo631139d ago (Edited 1139d ago )

That's impossible because PC Gaming has been dying for the past 10 yrs according to every article that brings it up ;) /s

Seriously tho you won't get any insane Christmas deal for games like you do on Steam. I'll enjoy my PS4/Wii U combo for offline SP gaming (or local MP).

liorishot1141d ago

In what universe it pc gaming dying? there is more games released on pc than any other platform every year, plus the new nvidia 700 series cards are out which are awesome.

fluffydelusions1141d ago

Not to mention the most played game in the world is LoL which has more people playing at any one time than all consoles combined.

ginsunuva1140d ago

Look at the /s after his statement.

2pacalypsenow1140d ago (Edited 1140d ago )

PC gaming is not dying not even close But console Gaming has replaced it as to Go to platform for most gamers and Developers.

And that charts seems misleading are those PC games Only coming to PC and also are they Cheap games or AAA games?

Alexander241140d ago

Yea, because thats why everyone is making games for consoles primarily instead of PC.

starchild1140d ago

You are grossly misinformed. The PC gets more games than any console does. Nearly all 3rd party games are multi platform. The only real games the consoles get that PC doesn't are the games the console makers fund. PC gets a lot of exclusives of it's own for other reasons.

In 2012 the PC generated more gaming revenue than all three consoles combined.

Alexander241140d ago

Yea, it gets the most exclusives, but it also gets the most irrelevant exclusives, they all suck, with some exceptions though. Just my opinion.

aliengmr1140d ago

Irrelevant to you maybe. I think most console games are boring and unoriginal. Gee another shooter? Wow that's only been done a thousand times. Yawn.

Just my opinion though;)

CrimsonFox131140d ago

I find it hilarious when console gamers say those small and 'irrelevant' games on the PC suck when I can count all the interesting console exclusives in the last generation on one hand. Most everything else is just a rehash of a rehash.

True, that's my opinion, and of course I'm going to be a bit smug about it when people buy the equivalent of a fast food meal for $60 when I can get a nice steak dinner for $15 and they think it's great.

sashimi1140d ago

They say that because...They've been kicked out of the console business or else they'll be saying how console is great yada yada. They seem pretty pissed off M$/Sony/Nintendo wouldn't pay their prices lol

Death1140d ago

I would expect nvidia to feel this way after Sony and Microsoft chose AMD over them for their consoles. If Live worked the same on my PC as my Xbox I would gladly pay for it. PC and PS2 had some of the same irritations that kept them from working as well. My friends and I enjoy talking as we play and it's never easy to get everyone on the same voice service with a mic that isn't annoyingly loud or irritatingly quiet. To pick up a controller, see my friends and hit them with an invite while hearing them clearly within minutes is extremely helpful when you have limited time to play.

aliengmr1140d ago

Or you could do that for free on Steam.
