if its not dead then its dieing ..
You're a funny little man.
Funny indeed lol! PC will destroy\ you.
By that logic, console gaming is definitely dead, considering PC game revenue has now surpassed console game revenue...
Really? Where did you get that information from? Can you post a link maybe? On topic: I feel like gaming in general gets bigger and bigger no matter what platform you look at. Just look at the sales of the new console generation. Or look at the size of the community of games like Dota 2 and LoL.
http://arstechnica.com/gami... Anyone with half a brain has seen this coming for years.
you beat me to it. Ridiculous morons think pc gaming is going anywhere
@Pandamobile: Well thanks for the link. That's the same info I found googling it. To be fair it's just an analyst making a claim. It doesn't matter which platform has more revenue though as it's obvious to any gamer that the market is growing not shrinking. The comment afterward was unnecessary. I assure you I have more than half a brain I just don't follow the economics of the business.
ArsTechnica article holds more weight than you'll ever have. Burden of proof is on you to prove them wrong. I'm not surprised considering EA has been profiting more off pc than ps3 for years. http://www.pcgamer.com/2012...
I didnt think people meant that PC gaming as a whole was dying.....just that the PC AAA exclusive was dying, and...well it as dead as a dodo the last AAA PC exclusive was Crysis 7 years ago
Never go full retard.
Star Citizen Planetary Annihilation Project Eternity Starcraft II: legency of the Void Arma 3 Mount and Blade 2 Torment: Tides of Numenera Wasteland 2 Divinity - Original Sin Grim Dawn Yeah,no exclusives:):)
PC does not really need AAA Exclusives when we get majority of the AAA multiplats in higher fidelity and more options. dlc etc Consoles in fact NEED the exclusives to actually survive. Also if you look at only PC exclusives list well I'm too scared to link you that site. Lets just say its a bit toooo many. The sheer variety, experimentation and uniqueness of the games on pc is not felt on any other platform.
@chris13gt We can add a few more to that list cant we? The Mandate Fortnite Routine Heroes of the Storm Stronghold Crusager
Also i forgot Unreal Tournament 4.
How can some people be so naive? The PC still gets the so-called AAA exclusives. Just yesterday a new Unreal Tournament was announced for PC. And there are lots of games (like Total War Shogun 2) that I simply can't play on any console. And even if the AAA exclusives have somewhat declined on PC, things have dramatically improved in general. The PC might have had slightly more AAA exclusives back in the 90s, but it also missed out on A LOT of 3rd party games that only came out on consoles. Now things are vastly better because nearly every 3rd party game comes out on the PC and can be enjoyed with the best graphics and framerate possible. And the PC still gets a massive amount of exclusives on top of all that.
basically if you're a strategy game buff. Then you've never truly experienced a strategy game if you've never played Total War. Only on pc
hahaha man you went full retard after your first sentence there. so many more exclusives on pc than on consoles. has been that way since the beginning of time kid, get on with it.
Only thing "dieing" is another one of your brain cells every time you post on here.
Right, that's why games sell better on PC smh
The first few weeks consoles have the BIG numbers for each game then they are never heard from again while the PC sells each game throughout the year and hardly makes the headlines especially digital titles. Games on PC must be selling quite well considering the PC market is predicted to be surpassing the console market in total revenue :) It's a marathon not a sprint :P
Here's why Number of active steam users in 2010: 25 million source: http://kotaku.com/5459766/s... Number of active steam users in 2014: 75 million source: http://www.joystiq.com/2014...
Depends on the game, something awesome like Portal 2 sold better on PC, as did BF3, and D3 sold way more units on PC. Stuff like CoD, yea the lunchbox kiddies buy that up.
PC Gaming is Immortal.
The OS and hardware manufacturers said it was dead because they wanted you to look to buy their closed system and pay so much more for games. The big publishers kept shouting piracy as the big excuse to push you you to game on a closed system. Many PC gamers even gave consoles a try as some of the big publishers (that also happen to manufacture the hardware) pushed out console only exclusives. But you just can't beat the PC for game quality, the wealth of games from smaller studios, much wider genre of games, user developed content (which has produced some of the most stunning and creative work not seen in commercial studios), backwards compatibility (as well as the ability for users to upgrade these old games to make use of current hardware), user has ability to select/prioritise IQ settings. And when not gaming you have a wealth of tools for just about any hobby / activity you can think of.
bahahahahahaha....what a noob. reported, no more bubbles for you sir.
PC gaming is far from dying, especially now that game development between PCs and consoles is so easy.
more like eating tons of carbs and lifting heavy sicne it passed both ps3+360+wii+wiiu + ps4 + xbone income combined
Gaming on all platforms is well and truly alive, so many great games to come :)
cod games on pc are dead thats a fact.
Yup they are. It's quite sad since CoD was PC exclusive a long time ago. I actually liked CoD 1 and 2 as they had a long single player campaign (15-20hrs) compared to the non-campaign now.
Just having a look on Gametracker and there are more PC players playing Cod 4 (on nice dedicated servers) than PS3 players playing Op2 or Ghosts!
Enjoy Unreal Tournament 4 on console.
Just you worry about your own game being delayed
lol pc gaming is everything but dead
"I laugh at those who kept predicting PC gaming to be dead by now" I laugh at developers who delay their game for a year with crap excuses like wanting to improve a single aspect of the game *bravo*
Bubble down for off-topic
@caseh You laugh at a developer who delayed their game to make it better? What is the matter with you?
This is the same company behind Dead Island, did you play that when it released? They release buggy games, if you're gonna delay don't make out its to improve one aspect of the gameplay. It probably broken beyond belief. It's ok though, they can delay for a year just like 80% of this gens devs have been doing.
I laugh at this developer thinking he is important.
I'm scared that one bubble just might pop.
that bubble might just pop right now man...careful
Considering that this dev also made Dead Island, I think they actually can consider themselves important.
How can the birth of gaming die? Literally pc gaming is the beginning and evolution of gaming other's take the concepts from pc then put it in a form . . . ooo brain-fart >.> someone more articulate take over for me lol
bahahaha i think i just made a brain fart face
PC noob here, any suggestions on where to start?
I wish i could help you I'm noobish myself >.<
What do you mean? Ideas on building one, or games to look into? Feel free to PM me, either of you.
I'll take a look at that. I want to build a low budget gaming PC that is easily upgradeable as I go along to spread the cost. just don't know where to start, I don't want to spend £500 only to find that Ive built something that cant be upgraded efficiently.
Take the plunge you won't regret it.
If you mean game wise, theres a lot of free good games out there (Dota 2, TF2, Planetside 2, etc) and steam sales are just around the corner. If you mean hardware wise you can ask r/BuildaPC for help http://www.reddit.com/r/bui... or check this out http://www.reddit.com/r/pcm...
With PCs, building is often the best way to go. Pre-built systems never have the best specs. My laptop is such a machine, but I don't game TOO much on PC, so it's fine for now.
Let's face brass tax. Gaming is still alive, somehow, let's all rejoice at that at least.
I just hope more dev support PC. Its cool after you finish a game on a console, you go buy the PC ver and enjoy the mods
Im a console gamer, my PC isn't good enough to run anything more than San Andreas. However I doubt PC will die any quicker than consoles as its what the games are developed on. Theyre capable of so much more than consoles, and with the modding communities old games last years after the official support has ceased.
If you have pci-e slot just go buy the gtx 750ti it will get you buy for quite awhile and its only 150 bucks.
I have no idea what any of that means lmao. If I ever get some spare money I wanna build myself a gaming rig, after alot of research ofcourse. But god knows when, I have a home and a family to pay for and I never seem to have any money..
@Clown_Syndr0me Home and a family. That's the very reason why I recommended the PS3 to a friend a couple of years back. I'm a PC gamer and I've only used, rarely, my siblings' consoles(my sister's PS2 and my brother's 360) but a lot of reading do help in recommending something else to a friend. I bumped into him again last week and when I said "PS4?" he was all excited with the topic. Several years on I'm still playing with my PC and he's still with his console. No need to pour elitism or exclusivity into the friendship.
PC gamers always trying and take the high ground. The fact is pc needs consoles AAA titles, and consoles do not need pc games. It's as simple as that. By the way those statistics are trash, as they include tablet games as pc sales.
I don't believe serious gamers subscribe to the notion that PC gaming is dead, or even on it's way out.... But the producer has a real nerve with this statement, since I laugh that they couldn't even meet the (dead) line. Witcher 3 is going to overshadow the Feb 2015 release for sure ;/
That would be like a serious PC gamer saying console gaming is dying. It just isn't. No signs say otherwise.
pc is massive . consoles are just ok . they r no match for pc graphics .
PC is going nowher. Consoles is going nowhere. Gaming is going nowhere!
