PCGamerUK's Editor Responds to Kudo's words about pc gaming.
Mouse and Keyboard support Mods Free online Upgradeable hardware
Didn't realize Kudo was flexible enough to put his foot THAT far in his mouth
Have you seen his "BAM! ~ There it is" on stage Kinect presentation failure? If his foot can do that then I am sure it can fit pretty far into his mouth... ;P
WOW! now that is a cuss!!!
Wears sunglasses indoors - check Wears braids - check Wears track suits - check Bullshit PR talk - check Forget Kinect the biggest news is how Microsoft managed and find the perfect douchebag.
I'm seriously wondering why everyone at Microsoft is diskinected to reality.
@lekum .. just so you know, his sunglasses are because of an eye disease. Its not fun to laugh of diseases. Although what the guys think and says...now thats laughing matter
it's just another day when someone at M$ says something completely stupid. i may not enjoying gaming on a PC, but i can't deny that a lot of people still do. you'd have to be a complete moron to think otherwise, but it's M$ and they constantly say moronic things. @iroquois yes you are right its usually every day lol.
I thought that was EVERY day lol
compare that to the number of people playing KZ2 or MAG or even Reach today. I used to play more on my pc till crysis came out. I have not gotten a new video card sine the 7900. I need a new one to be somewhat up to par with new games coming out.
Since gaming is mainly multiplatform, the PC versions run exceedingly well with older hardware. The requirements aren't as high as they used to be, and all in all you're just playing a version of an Unreal engine game...
Not sure what you mean exactly. KZ2 was great at launch, but there are almost no servers left. I get on and there are maybe 10 servers up. Mag is pretty much dead as well. Reach definitely has a lot of players right now, but it did JUST come out. Also, these numbers were ONLY from Steam and don't count retail copies or any other game that isn't sold on steam, AND they were taken at 5pm UK time which is before US peak play hours.
thats only Steam numbers. there are many, many more playing PC FPS's then just on Steam.
266,505 is just a snapshot in time. People log on and off. Spread out across a 24-hour day, the number is probably about 15 to 20 times as high.
the ps3 got mods from the pc community for unreal tournament 3 and burnout paradise on the ps3 allowed for game saves to interact with the pc for map updates etc.. i think steam is going to really bring this to the consoles starting to with the ps3, i hope anyway.. outside of that kodu can go to hell, has he dont anything in his life that was successful and well recieved? fight night? .def jam icon? and now kinect he needs to be fired but instead he is a perfect fit for microsofts pr tea;m
-PS3 isn't getting Steam, VALVe games on PS3 are getting Steamworks, there's a difference. It also doesn't bring Modability to games it brings a framework to developers. -UT3 Mod Scene is dead now, unlike mod scenes on PC ( http://www.fpsbanana.com). Face it, you console only people can't mod for shit or keep a modding community alive. -Burnout Paradise map thingie as in you putting your save on your PC and it telling you what you have to unlock? lul i did that for 101% on PS3 and that ain't even close to modding. Whatever Gabe said was wrong, PS3 is not an open platform, it maybe for developers sure, but as long as it is closed to its userbase it is absolutely impossible for a game to be modded. You know most mods are skins right? This involves having access to core files such as the texture files in the game's directory.
Depends on the game. Any shooter that only needs you to twitch kill is better on pc becausew obviously the Keyboard and mouse is well more accurate and easier to use. Upgradeable hardware is a downturn Imo. you could buy 2 GPU's in the space of 5 years. With a console you just buy the next model that comes out. Free online lol, definatly. But if your willing to pay for live then so be it. Mods. I don;t even need to comment.
266,505 that actually doesn't sound like allot to me?
over a million played halo reach today, thats just one game now factor in the rest of the fps on consoles.
And then they'll move to CoD: Black Ops when it comes out... You didn't read that it's Steam numbers only atm. That's NOT everyone fyi..
At the same time. And this is only Steam games. COD2 and COD4 are more popular than MW2 (at least according to Xfire).
O yeah :) got love PC gaming
A quote from a Microsoft Lecturer.
All video games are toys. What the hell are they if not that?
Didn't know Jack Thompson trolled on N4G. XD
It means PC gaming is still alive more than ever! :) I don't think the PC gamers ever stopped gaming in the first place anyway..
hmm how much people played fps on consoles then??? 1 million,or even more?
Reach alone was over a million last night.
That and MW2 are probably the single most played games on consoles, tho. Compare that to, say, WoW, on computers and I bet it beats them both, combined. No gamers are more hardcore than WoW gamers. How do I know this? South Park told me so...
Can't say I disagree with you there.
I am one
so am I
Why do MS employ such idiots ? Kudo is the biggest bull shitter ever! And why does he look like an 80s porn star ?
Kudo and Greenberg. The 2 biggest retards in the industry, both working with MS. Bill next time, interview your potential employees to avoid hiring another Dumb and Dumber.
Um...that's NOT a big number, people...even if Kudo IS a dbag.
read the article, thats before the US comes out to play too AND its only steam figures
by comparasion pc is less, So he wasn't lying.
people need to stop caring about data that does not affect them.
MS clearly is involved with the pc market!
Well that's what happens when you spend a lot of your time with GREENTURD. You become a turd.
At least 1 million unique players plays Counter-Strike in a 24-hour period, and that's not even counting cyber cafes.
where you find that info Bob? id like to look at it. and 1 million unique players for 1 FPS game when PC gamers have hundreds to choose from. unlike consoles where they have maybe 6 games that are actually played with decent numbers.
http://game-monitor.com/sea... This website tracks public servers for games. So it doesn't account for private servers or LANs. If you add in CS: Source, that's close to 2 million players.
I have been playing Guild war for a month straight now. My PS3 and 360 hasn't been turned on at all for over a month now. Oh, I still play L4D on computer. It is still blast. :D
That was an ignorant comment by that idiot kudo However i wonder what was the equivalent number of console gamers today who played an fps. I'd imagine alot.
Not to mention PC gamers play RTS(Starcraft 2 which is selling like hotcakes right now),MMO,and Sim games by the millions
I haven`t played any games today :(
common man. if FPS's are superior on pc then why are they selling so horribly? maybe because geeks spend all their money on components so they don't have enough money to buy games so they pirate it. MW2 in UK only 3% for pc http://kotaku.com/5409738/m...
digital sales are not tracked, digital sales make up over 80% of all pc sales. There is your answer.
So you use a game where the entire community pretty much cut ties to. Despite what those steam mw2 launch pics show. I don't have anyone on my friends list that bought mw2. Why not use a game where the pc community accepted? Oh right because in bc2's case it sold more on the pc than 360 and ps3 combined. Thus debunking your entire argument.
shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh evrfighter. dont let him know that. it will deflate his console gamer ego. and bubble for you my PC brethren. you seem to be lacking.
Sorry buddy @ Emil1 but most PC gamers hate MW2 because it SUCKS but we wish Killzone 3 was on PC. BFBC2 sold more units on the PC than the 360 and PS3 combined because DICE made an excellent PC game. Most sales numbers for PC are retail but most PC gamers use Digital Distribution which isn't tracked. Hence the always low figures that really don't reflect the 100 Billion dollar PC industry To be honest more Laptops capable of gaming will be sold between August and December 25 2010 than the entire life cycle so far of the PS3 and 360 combined. (or very close) This whole PC is the dying enemy thing is total Flaimbait. Just enjoy whatever you play and play on and ignore these dumb quotes from silly people. Game on buddy. and remember "POWER 2 da Gamers"
Only one out of 4 PC games are bought from brick and mortar stores. The rest are DD.
Most people I know play PC FPS on PRIVATE SERVERS. Anyway about 310,000 people are playing Americas Army 3.08 right now. just under 20,000 are playing Americas Army 2.85 right now and if it wasn't for Monday Night Football I would be playing Stalker Multiplayer or BFBC2 or Arma II right now. See you after the game though or at half time.
266505 is not much compared to the FPS's on Xbox like Kudo was kind of right
266505 That was just the amount of people playing a FPS on STEAM at that particular second. it doesn't account for Xfire Battle.net Raptr gamespy Comrade GSC Game Ranger (MAC) POPCap Wireplay Quake Live not too mention private servers or the publishers servers.
I am with you... I just get sick of defending PC gaming to console owners lol. Good points so far though.
I don't care what anyone says MS want to kill off PC gaming ,they only see console gamers as money cows, and my two boys are the worst with stupid map packs, downloaded addons and expansions that was free on the PC most of the time.....DAM YOU TO HELL MS DAM YOU....phew out my system now lol
