Pach, Pach, Pach... why do you annoy me so? Have these systems not existed and strived for many years already. PC, Mobile and Console gaming, do not take away from each other directly. They can an will continue to co-exist. People like different things. There are solutions that meet the needs of different types of people. There just happen to be some cross adoption.

Agreed, I think console gaming will always be around along with the other mediums.

k-dillinger1871d ago

yea 1st time i agree with pach man love his comment about keyboard and mouse lmao thankkkk you pach glad someone actually came out and said that and shut them up i think he just earned himself alot of respect from me here on out for that

EXVirtual1871d ago

Thank you!
PC, consoles and mobiles offer completely different experiences and can easily co-exist, just like Physical and digital distribution. Neither has to die.

@ Bigpsppy Bubbles+ Well Said!

Console Gaming is the result of all the new things tried on the PC but put together in a more refined package.

Most Hot gaming trends started on the PC in one form but then were adapted by consoles and taken further to apeal to a broader audience SPorts FPS, MMO's, Point n CLick adventures, etc..

Console Gamings ease of use and simple use makes it very attractive for those who just want to jump ina game and relax. Console Gaming will be here for a long time in one form or another.

PC is where all the BLEEDING EDGE technology and gaming ideas are BORN. They find an apeal in niche markets, they give Indie Devs a name, they have cult followings, or whatever but the PC offers the freedom to just try something New, self publish, and on a low Budget with no pressure from a Publisher.

PC Gaming because of it's power and advantages also allows for games that just can't be done on anything else and gives Gamers the CHOICE to create their OWN Perfect Gaming Experience.

Mobile gaming has it's own specialized games to make use of the mobile tech but mostly it's great console gaming on the go or using brilliant ways to tap into PC gaming as a nice side piece. Laugh at mobile gaming if you want but Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja have millions of gamers and have made a TON of money.

like Bigpappy said THEY ALL will thrive and do well because the gaming Industry is a $40 Billion Dollar MONSTER with room for ALL to make a few bucks.

Yeah, years ago they were saying mobile and tablet devices would replace consoles but it's never gonna happen.

I think his comment about keyboard and mouse is ridiculously childish. Literally all he does is insult the PC demographic and uses that as a point against keyboard and mouse- which is garbage logic.

I mean, if I can play a PC game with my controller I will simply due to comfort, but some games are just so much better with a keyboard. I'm talking about first person shooters, Action RPGs, Strategy games, MMOs- you're gonna want a keyboard and mouse for those games. I prefer using controllers for third person action games and platformers and such where you don't need the level of precision a keyboard and mouse gives you- you instead need simpler controls.

I understand what you're saying, but in all fairness to Michael Pachter, he just answers common questions from the GT community.

just-joe1871d ago

You're common sense regarding people having different interest is enlightening. I propose you make your own show called Pap-Attack.

Seriously, though well said.

Here is an out there idea. Give away all of the guitar hero back catalog for free (maybe minus the music) and then let people do a pay as you go on tracks. Nah, actually nobody will buy them. It has been long enough though that I quite fancy a bit of GH.

dumahim1870d ago

I love how he says his guitar broke and gave stuff away to neighbor kids but right before he took the question, you can see on leaning against the wall behind him to the left. But once he takes the question, the camera is moved over to the right slightly to take the guitar out of the shot.

Evil_Abed1871d ago

Why is the media so obsessed wit pitting gamers against each other? And why do gamers fall for it so many times??

KwietStorm1871d ago

I don't know, man. I really don't know.

Because people are insecure and feel they have to justify everything they do and buy.

That is the problem with consoles becoming too much like PC in the wrong areas like patching updating and installing the game onto a hard drive. Instead of implementing mods, map editors. All in all I see consoles and handhelds becoming one system.

VoodooRob1871d ago

Pach is awesome. I luv how he just calls out these basement PC dorks with there keyboard and
