EA Sports continues PC hate

"NHL 10 is confirmed to be canceled. Similar story with Madden 10 - though after missing out in 09 edition, PC users hoped EA spent this time developing a proper PC version for this year. No such luck. And last but not least, Tiger Woods will be delayed"

Whats the point when they are not gunna sale and get pirated. Wouldnt be worth the cost of making it...

The games actually do sell. They don't cost much to make, seeing as how they pretty much port the damn PS2 version to the PC, so it should be profitable even if they don't sell a huge amount of copies.

Its a shame to see a format lose support but you can't blame EA when so much of their stuff is pirated.

HAH! What do they expect when they give first priority to consoles, all PC gamers ever get is poorly ported, half-effort versions. Don't forget that it was EA who first chose to give more emphasis to console versions over PC, that's why PC gamers retaliated with piracy.

And with the poor ports, they can't expect to sell big on PC....compare EA Sports titles on consoles and PC, look at the difference in the ratings given by several gaming-sites and you'll know what i'm talking about.

So you are blaming EA for the piracy problems and not the gamers? LOL
Start buying some games and maybe the PC will get more attention. Unfortunately i do not see that happening. Downloading a pirated game is just too easy.

I never download games for my PC for two reasons. First, my computer is to crap for the newer games. Second, with the graphics as good as they are on a console now a days, i would much rather use a controller over a mouse and keyboard.

"Second, with the graphics as good as they are on a console now a days"

That may have been true at launch, but now, PC graphics have a very clear and distinct lead in terms of quality now. Compare multi-platform games like Call of Duty 4 or Unreal Tournament 3 and you'll see a noticeable difference in quality.

"i would much rather use a controller over a mouse and keyboard."

PCs can use controllers very easily. I play with a 360 controller all the time, and most games detect the controller natively and assign all the proper buttons for you. I use it a lot for racing and platforming games.

@ 36T
Did i say i was exclusive to the PC? or that i'm downloading illegal games? NO, you assumed all of that.....why did you think i posted on "Gamer Zone" and not on the "Open Zone"....next time don't be too quick to pass judgment just because someone doesn't like a crap-porting, money-grubbing, franchise-milking company like EA Sports, which you apparently seem to worship.

With all the piracy, i just don't see the logic in releasing games on a PC. So to all you PC gamers, i`ll see you on a console sometime in the near future unless for some unknown reason you all start buying games again.
