PCGamer has insight on why PC's are winning the E3.
1)gta v //end of discussion
It will eventually be on PC too, like every other GTA to date. Patience is a virtue, my friend ;)
Reason 3 says "No ten-year cycle" oh really? So the PC that you build today will play all the games released in 10 years with no upgrades?
PC is arguably a better value than the X1 but not the PS4. PS4 will have exclusives that will look better that you will never see on PC. And PS4 will be playing games on max for the next 2 years that are multiplatform (on 1080p and 60 frames, but that's all you really need). BF4 doesn't count because they're more than likely making a build for PS3 or 360, and then porting it over to next gen. And consoles have the better community. Everybody is using the same controller, and more people have headsets. Everyone is using the same integrated communication system where as on PC people are using different chatting apps like AIM.
Of course, it will play the games in ten years, but on the lowest settings at lowest resolution.
And much better looking
I wouldn't know cause I haven't seen the PC conference at E3. Wich company own the PC console anyway?
mike are you really serious? please tell me you are kidding.
Sadly, solar, he probably isn't kidding. There really are people that delusional. PS4 is going to be great and I am getting one. But PC can't be beat. The best graphics, the best framerate, the most freedom, backwards compatibility with thousands of games, personalization and customization, oculus rift, and free online gaming all belong to the PC.
i got my PS4 preordered as well Star, yet it will never, ever take the place of PC gaming for me. all the things you mentioned makes this platform the best. and im going to get the Rift when it hits, it looks incredible and a true "innovative" way to play games, unlike the so called "innovation" console extremists preach that consoles breed, which i havent seen since the Wii.
Hey Genius Grand Theft Auto started on the PC and every release has had a PC version and this will included GTAV which with mods will be the SUPERIOR version just like GTAIV PC. GTAIV PC still has a large community thanks to the mods and Rockstar knows this while NO ONE is playing GTAIV console.
"Rockstar knows this while NO ONE is playing GTAIV console." Maybe because it wasn't a very good game? Making it more pretty with mods doesn't change the fact the game was still bad. Also why would console players be still playing an old game when MANY new and better console 1st and 3rd party games have come out?
blahblahblah.... facts 1) ffxv 2) kh3 3) los2 4) mgsv 5) etc.... name one pc exclusive this e3? one? oh and yeah is r* w still making that port of rdr for you obvious winners
Everyone avoided bringing MMOs/F2Ps in these arguments. We are talking about game that millions play and those two genres are played by millions of gamers everyday. Console fans understandably avoid mentioning this since the sheer numbers (of players and exclusivity to the PC) would just crush their beloved console exclusives. As for PC fans...why don't you bring up those two genres to these arguments? It's a big mistake because we all know the console fans will use their MMO/F2P exclusives against us (in similar arguments) when next gen consoles appear.
Cuz of The Division?? lol no. PC is awsome but console have most of the interesting AAA games. I can't wait for infamous.
Gamers Won...and that is it. PC Has Total War: Rome 2 releasing in september and that game is going to be amazing. I think the new shadowrun game releases on steam soon as well. PC has a dedicated following and there will always be PC games made and purchased simply because of the freedom. One is never better than the other....just different. I get a different gaming experience on my 3DS/PSP/Xbox 360/PC but I like the differences. It would be dumb if I had to play the same games on each console/handheld....it would defeat the purpose of multiple consoles/gaming devices.
gta v, what?
Right now PC gaming is a far better experience than console. Games such as Battlefield 4 on console looks pale in comparison to the PC. However, with the next generation consoles, they will be catching up. I know that they will eventually become outdated again.
Consoles have 10 year cycles but Pc have 3-5 because of new hardware my Video card alone costed me more than PS4 will cost I don't think anyone is playing Metro Last light or Crysis 3 on a GTX 9800 in 2013 You can also play old games just whip out your Ps1 or Ps2 of course you can't play as many games than you can on PC (emulators) but you still can Now before people give disagrees I love PC gaming I started with PC's and built a gaming machine with SLI and invest a lot of money in it, so im neutral here just stating what i think
dude that cycle you speak of is totally your choice not sony and ms which is another reason pc is amazing you have choices. So you can upgrade when you want. i try to upgrade about half way through console cycles also because its when mid to higher end pc's can run any conosole ports at ungodly framerates at any setting or resolution and there showing off next gen console tech on pc by using new engines so you get amazing graphics and framerates.
This years E3 has made a PC gamer out of me. I was PS2 last gen and Xbox 360 this gen, but neither next gen console has impressed me (for different reasons) so PC it is.
LOL what an idiot story by PC Gamer, they must be on vacation and let the interns write the stories. The PC is all but absent at E3 cause E3 is all about the consoles. Although last years Planetside 2 PC CLEARLY won E3 best game. If the PC won this years E3 it was because Destiny, Titanfall, and BF4 (Consoles best new games) all looked WONDERFUL running on the PC while Xbone and PS4 versions paled in comparison or glitched out. I saw it LIVE so I saw the CLEAR difference and once released YOU will too. E3 = where console games are run on High End PC's LOL PC = Next Gen we got all the CONSOLES best Games.
Yes, because games like The Last Guardian, The Order, new Naughty Dog game are PC only, time to laugh. Can Play the multiplats on my Ps4 beside the exclusives, PC is winning the category of uselessness...
You are entitled to an opinion, but don't be such an ass with it.
Good luck playing The Last Guardian any time soon as Sony have put the game on hold till further notice :P Oh and all those games are Sony first party games. I do play on PS3 as well. I've had all of Sony's consoles but i prefer PC now. It's just a lot more versatile. Watch Dogs is a PC first game then being scaled down for the consoles. BF4 was also shown on the PC at E3 this year and many more console games were shown on PC as well. I think the PC is first for quite a lot of "console" games this time as the consoles are so similar to the PC so why not? :)
le sigh. the List Guy is here again with what he thinks everyone should play. please stop being that guy.
i thought E3 was for Console first!... anyway PC isn't winning the E3 because PS4 already win.
E3 is more than 15 years old, and PS4 is not even out. Do the math.
you game on what you like,Im just a custom to playstation so its my platform of choice. but after I get my PS4 I would probably save up for a PC just to be safe in the future.
PC gaming is a different experience than all consoles and handhelds combined. It should be in a category alone. The total freedom and no restrictions from the devs/publishers is enough to enjoy the master gaming experience, and no amount of exclusives can top it.
Freedom because graphic Options that slows down FPS and a dumb Mod Community? Don't make me laugh. I've bought a gaming PC with a GTX 690,4 GB Intel Core i7 3770K for 2,500 Euros and it was one of the badest decisions I've made. Games like Guild Wars 2 have Problems with my PC, several older games too. Money out from the window...
Games like Guild Wars 2 wouldnt run better on consoles. There is a reason there is no console game where 100+ persons are running around wearing thousends of different equipement elements. Next gen consoles will catch up PCs but not for long. And btw if you have some common sense and dont change your computer's OS into a trash can games run without any problems.
hahahahahahahaha, if you cant get a game to work on PC nowadays then you have to be mentally incapable to problem solve and maybe you should just stick to your console, stay out of PC gaming threads, and leave us who have an interest in the hobby alone.
I payed mine 600 euros and I play Witcher 2 with 95% things maxed out. Do not buy a PC that doesn't have games that can use all it's power. It's a waste of money. When they create such games, I'll buy your PC for 600 euros. Hehe...
Will sell it on eBay for around 1900 Euros, with that Money I will buy a Ps4 and save the rest for several Launch titles... copy of Witcher 2 had probelm with it too...
Never thought having such bad experience with PC gaming, never again. If you want to throw your Money out of window, then make it. I will not buy a PC anymore, not even a single component. With multiplats that are optimated for console, I can be sure of having at least some fun while playing...
You will buy a pc, if only for work. The thing is the PC is not better or worse than consoles. It's different. Just take a look at RPGs. Those developed for consoles are often fast paced, action rpg's. Those developed of PC are often more tactical and full of micromanagement. (The first are 'dumbed down' and the second are 'tedious and boring' for people who hate nuance) Which is why having, and gaming on both is the only viable option.
I can't stand PC gamer site, stop elitists.
Oh, so you Sony fans can act all elitist to the Nintendo and Microsoft fans like you always do? The hypocrisy of you guys makes me sick.
