Console Gaming only has a NEGATIVE effect on PC Gaming!

PC Gaming is Bleeding Edge Technology

BitbyDeath903d ago

Older PC's hold PC back, consoles force those on old PC's to upgrade or be left behind.

decrypt903d ago

Yea but considering any serious gamer would atleast have a 200usd GPU, i would say odds are its the consoles holding tech back.

As you can get GPUs that perform simular to XB1 @ 130usd PS4 @ 180usd.

Anything above that easily outperforms consoles.

M-M903d ago

You need to chill man, both PCs and consoles help each other.

slimeybrainboy903d ago

lol seeking attention through flames, you're like the human torch

Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II903d ago

Console ports to PC are very negative.

Bathyj903d ago

Please, 90% of games are built with consoles in mind. If it werent for consoles and there were only bleeding edge PC's there would be no gaming industry.

Enjoy your more powerful technology by all means, I dont care, but dont act like we're the burden. You need us more than we need you.

ATiElite903d ago

"You need us more than we need you"

LMAO! What a Fool!

PC Gaming has NO need for Consoles. Everything I do and Play started on the PC first so how in the hell do I need an out of date box that can barely do 1080p 60fps when I'm gaming at 4K Ultra 60fps?

all your console tech comes from PC gaming
all your games come from PC gaming

who had RTS, FPS, MMO, Simulation, Racers, SPorts, point n Click adventures, Survival Horror, 3D, games first?

The PC. So Learn your History before opening up your MOUTH!

Consoles had side scrolling platform games first (actually Arcade had them first) but other than that consoles whole entire existence relies on PC Gaming.

Online MP, Digital downloads, DLC, Patches, HDD, game installs, etc. where the HELL does all this stuff come from?

THE GLORIOUS PC GAMING MASTER RACE!

Learn your Gaming History instead of making up CRAP!

Bathyj903d ago (Edited 903d ago )

Missed my point entirely.

Most games are made with console gamers in mind. Most PC games are just console games with a prettier coat of paint.

Thats why guys like you are so angry all the time. Your machine is better. You know it, we know, its just that no one cares, especially developers because they always cater to the lowest common denominator which is consoles.

You want to stand up on a pedestal and we all bow to you, except we dont really notice you cos were more concerned with our own stuff. Ooo, look at the PC gamer Billy, hes so much better than us. Ha. Sorry if you feel you lack attention. Maybe get a dog.

This obviously doesnt apply to the normal PC gaming crowd, you guys are fine by me. Just the type who has to yell things like "THE GLORIOUS PC GAMING MASTER RACE!" and expect us all to be impressed. Your not really swaying any to your cause with that stuff.

@Bathyj

Where do you think the APUs for XB1 and PS4 came from? Its the master race funding all these developments.

Had PC gamers not been buying such hardware you can forget about this tech being out for consoles either.

TBH most of us dont play games designed around console as mostly they are way below PC standard. Check out games like:

Arma 3,
Dota 2,
Skyrim (thousands of mods for that game),
Civ V,
TF2,
Shogun 2,
Left 4 dead 2,
Dayz.

Bathyj903d ago

Decrypt
At least you're talking about the games you like as a reason why you like pc, so I say good for you. I just have no time for people who think that we have to tremble before their mighty power. Sitting up on that high horse but resorting to name calling to make his/her point.

Can't we just agree that pc and console gaming feed off each other and that each one benefits the other? That's great you have all those games that are pc specific, but I bet you play many that are console centric too. One hand washes the other.

Props for you taking on ATiElite and decrypt all by yourself lol.

I think consoles have been trying to benefit off of PC just by switching for easier deployment.

mikegeezy69903d ago

without consoles the same amount of effort put in to HUGE hits would not be put in to PC. why? look at the market, without the millions upon millions of people who drive the console market video game would not have flourished, besides if consoles up and disappeared many people would simply be turned off by pcs. think about it if they were so GREAT wouldn't pc's overshadow consoles by leaps and bounds? I'm not saying pc's aren't great, however it is silly to even state what you said.

Dante81903d ago

Sarcasm, eh. I'm a PC gamer but without consoles we'd be stuck with a metric ton of niche genres. No thanks!!

CaulkSlap903d ago

You're right if developers would just focus on modern PC gaming like the old days. But now almost every major game is multiplat. 360/PS3 have been the baseline for years now and it has held back developers immensely. Just get higher resolution and effects on PC. It takes significant modding to get games close to displaying the potential of PC hardware. I'm just glad there's new hardware so developers can move on. PS4/XBO games will look great and look even greater on PC.

d3nworth1903d ago

Thats a developer decision. Most multiplats the PC version has has effects that were left out of the console version due to their limitations. It that simple if the console cant handle it leave out of that version. It most likely due to time restraints that the developer can't focus attention on 1 platform. Now all 3 platforms have using similar architecture the time for it take for coding should for each platform should be reduced.

Volkama903d ago

Sure consoles (and older PCs) hold high-end gaming PCs back. But the old consoles held it back more so than the PS4/One. Hence the release of those consoles should drive PC gaming forward.

d3nworth1903d ago

You people keep saying console hold back PC but to this day never actually proving it. You guys brag about getting the superior version and still complain about it being held back. That doesnt make any sense. Its a total contradiction. You do realize that console gamers also have PCs right? Theyre not typing these comments from their ps3s. So if they wanted to game on PC they do it. Your argument is nothing more than nonsense anybody with a pair of eyes and commonsense can see consoles dont hold back PC.You PC elitist are nothing more than the gamer equivalent of Nazi.Only difference is that unlike the Nazi nobody fears or respect you.

PC is like a double-edged sword a master race but an inconvenience

cesuf903d ago (Edited 903d ago )

The inconvenience of pc's or that they cant plug into your tv thru hdmi are very, very dated misconceptions. For well over 15 years now, they have been plug and play. Not sure why these myths persist.

mikegeezy69903d ago

its cool they can now do that and all..
however you know what still holds it tremendously back?

the fact that is completely immobile.
yes, a console is not ACTUALLY mobile, however i can easily bring my console to lets say a friends house, i can easily switch it room to room within my own home, bring to to college and back from college on long breaks even short weekends home, i can bring it with when i travel, when i go on vaca (for down time if necessary) list goes on and on.
you can tell me as much as you want that you can transport your rig but lets face it, it is a hassle. besides that if I'm going to shell out tremendous amounts of money and continue to do so since ill have to upgrade with super expensive parts, i would not want to take the risk to be transporting it.

Volkama903d ago

Mikegeezy you're in a minority if you take your console around with you. Not many people at all basing their purchase on how transportable the thing is.

It's also not much harder to move a PC than it is a console, if you have a car. It's just... not something many people consider doing. The last console I took to a friend's house was a Sega Saturn.

Convas903d ago (Edited 903d ago )

An inconvenience to the unwashed and the uninitiated maybe.

Peasants always make PC gaming out to be some terribly hard or complicated process. It's as simple or as detailed as you make it.

That's the beauty of it. It's a user defined experience. Everyone's mileage will vary according to their tastes. Maybe one day, you too will join us in the sky.

evilsooty903d ago

There's truth in that one.

My gaming PC weighs a tonne and sounds like a hoover when it's playing a demanding game and I have to turn the fans up. It really isn't something I would want in my living room :)

That being said I still prefer PCs as I love tinkering with things.

DanielGearSolid903d ago

Developing for PCs must be incredibly hard. The unlimited amount of hardware/Software combinations they have to cater to must be overwhelming. Console devs can focus on one SKU Per platform...

So I would say console devs get more time to polish.

While PC only devs are probably more versatile.

Are_The_MaDNess903d ago

hmmmmm thats why we have something called settings and drivers nowadays.....
really guys. isnt that hard to make games for PC's now.
ofc there is some API's and frameworks you have to work with. as there is with consoles.

cesuf903d ago (Edited 903d ago )

@Daniel

It's not as hard as youd think. Dev's program for 2 graphics cards: Amd and NVidia, that's it. It doesn't matter that there's hundreds of series of those card out there. You have settings that are auto-detected depending on how fast your system is.

Pandamobile903d ago (Edited 903d ago )

Exactly. If you're a competent programmer, it's not hard to resolve most of the hardware related issues that you'd encounter when making a game.

For the most part, that's the job of engine developers. If you're games use engines like Unity and Unreal 3 and stuff, 99% of the hardware stuff is already addressed.

the_hitman3000903d ago (Edited 903d ago )

Well duh. But you know what wither you are gaming on a Wii U, PS4, Xbox One, or PC it's still a new system that's out and I think no matter what system you play on you fanboys of all kinds should see that every other system helps your favorite company one way or another.

Sad part is this article will probably end up with people complain about what is better just enjoy what you got.

Back to the topic of course it will they're all x64 so things shouldn't be bad and PC shouldn't have bad ports. In return I imagine good graphics on Consoles coud be easier to achieve.

cesuf903d ago

I mostly agree with you except for the last few years of the consoles. I would argue that a lot of games (not all) have held back pc quality because the hardware was so dated.

But really moot now. We have next gen systems with x86 cpu's and 8gb ram. There's no good excuse from dev's now about multiplatform games now.

the_hitman3000903d ago

I agree about their should be no excuses BUT I don't think it's the consoles fault that games were held back on PC. For example BF3, Crysis 3, ect. It's up to the developers if they want to or can give PC the extra power it can do or not.
