DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson has called any claims that the PC market is in decline or dead are “bullshit.”
Aww heck yeah!!
And they are going to prove it by rubbing Battlefield 3 into all these claimers' faces.
connect BF3 with steamworks, and you have my money for the collectors edition.
Yeah, we know that. But try telling that to the PS3 fanboys for whom the word of Sony is like the Law of Gravity. Say otherwise, and they'll burn you alive as if you've just peed on their altar. (Watch this space for some bitter retaliation.)
You sir are a brave one to even utter those words on N4G.COM! Be prepared to be burnt to the cross
as someone that's been burned at the cross at the hands of the ps3 extremists much <3. @ silly gamer for the longest time and even still. The sdf truly believed the cell to be the last piece of tech we will ever need in our lifetime. They wanted pc gaming to die a quick death so that they could claim to have the most powerful platform available. But pc gaming is pretty much as badass as Duncan Macleod with a neck made of adamantium. tldr? It was the ps3 fanboys that were hootin and hollering in the "piracy!: pc is teh DOOMED!!!1" articles. which is funny because they like to use "zomg media hates sony with ps3 is doomz0rs articles!!!"
Evefighter, that's the biggest crock I've read since I've been here.
playing victim now, ha? say what you want about yourself being a PC gamer while the truth is you're just a SONY hater in disguise! singling out PS3 fanboys as the audience who pray for the death of PC gaming is kinda immature as it is! many times on N4G I see comments about "multiplat games are superior on pc, console sucks!", "kb+m rules, gamepads suck!" etc. and now pc gamers want to play as victim? what a joke! pc + ps3 is the best combo for gaming IMO with lots of exclusives between them! admit it, no matter how powerful your PC really is, there's no way you can play all 720p or sometimes sub-HD (as you guys like to call them!) PS3 exclusives and some 360 exclusive for that matter! played MGS4 yet? Halo3? Uncharteds? AW? Demon Soul? GT5? Gears2? no, right? it's suppose to be about the games but clearly now it's not the case anymore with you guys! some guys in here said "just wait until BF3 is out and the comparisons are making every console look like shit. Not in just the graphic department either, only PC will be able to handle it in 64 players for example... Then you'll realise PC gaming is killing you, and N4G will be "mad"." guess what? if what you've said is true then NONE will flock to CoD and Halo and Mario which are all "low-end" games for you uber-PC guys but guess what? with sub-HD and 5v5 MP and many more "disgusting" performance of consoles over these games, people buy them! leap and bound, sea to sky in comparison of sales to the best the PC has to offer! it's sad that CRAP like CoD sells but reality is, people are after the GAME not SPEC! having the best of both worlds is the only solution to this and it's kinda annoying that one platform is praying for the other platform to die when there are where the GAMEs really are!
lol funny stuff. PC gaming was never dead to begin with, it has hit its high points and low points though. this year would be a good year for PC gaming when you look at the calendar -portal 2 -Dragon Age 2 -Deus ex:HR -crysis 2 -total war:shogun 2 -BF3 would be nice to see if blizzard can release diablo III this year lol
I will Seriously sell all my consoles just for Diablo 3 if it was this year!
Dragon Age 2 will hardly be better on PC than consoles. I played the PC demo, they removed the extra features that made it worthwhile to get on PC. I would say it would be better on consoles, since you will have to use the gamepad, which the game was designed for.
You forgot old republic man
yea forgot about Knights of the Old Republic
SKYRIM? Good list though
I'm sorry but what exactly does this have to do with PS3 fanboys? Will the same work for say...360 fanboys? Or how about I throw Nintendo fanboys out there. Does owing a PS3 automatically mean that you hope the PC platform dies a slow painful death? . Sorry man but you lost me here. Didn't know PS3 fanboys were crying out for the death of PC gaming.
It does mean that, just wait until BF3 is out and the comparisons are making every console look like shit. Not in just the graphic department either, only PC will be able to handle it in 64 players for example... Then you'll realise PC gaming is killing you, and N4G will be "mad". Maybe that is why the phrase "PC gaming is dead" became so popular, the butthurt from Doom 3 and HalfLife 2 still fresh in their minds.
@Silly gameAr, It's easier to point at PS3 fans for this because of the demographics of this site. It's obvious that there are more PS3 fans here than 360 fans.
Well if certain fanboys wasnt such jerks they wouldnt get blamed for things lol.
Wow really?. Were do you find PS3 fans saying that PC is dead?. Oh wait. You just pulled that out of your ass.
I find that funny as The PC and the PS3 go together and my PC gamer mates bought PS3's and not 360's.
That's my experience as well. It makes more sense to get a PS3 and PC together in any case.
oh suhtup seriously everyone is all oh the ps3 fanboys on here are terrible blah blah i find the complaining more terrible then they are i usually just laugh at fanboy comments then move on. im a ps3 gamer but im buying this on pc. along with skyrim and i am currently mainling playing starcraft 2. no sony fanboy ive seen has stated that pc gaming is dead etc

Pc will never die.
Actually, it will die when people stop buying PCs. As to when that is... Your guess is as good as mine!
It kind of is though, all there is for PC are MMOs, cross platform FPSs, and Blizzard games. There's hardly any single player games anymore besides Bioware and Bethesda games, which aren't all that great these days.
You're not a PC gamer, are you?
@Geralt He clearly isn't.Which reminds me I have to pick up The Witcher 2 for PC and my bro will pick up Dragon Age 2 for PC as well.Clearly because they are multiplayer games /sarcasm Also I have to pick up Darkspore which is a MMO?...nope Cross platform FPS?...no blizzard game?...Not even close
What he said. You don't own a gaming PC do you? Besides, what you just described sounds more like the current console scene minus a few kinect or move titles. PC gaming has everything, it is what you make it these days.
I have yet to see anyone mention any decent PC titles, so whatever.
I am a PC gamer, and there are a few gems like the Witcher and it's sequel (sequel is cross platform which is why I didn't mention it) but when it comes down to it, the games available for PC boil down to what I've mentioned. I'm not interested in experimental spinoff games like Darkspore, I want real games like what was available in the golden age of PC gaming, games that you just won't ever see anymore.
"sequel is cross platform which is why I didn't mention it" You just blew your cover. Anyone in the PC gaming scene knows that Witcher 2 is still an exclusive as far as we know :P
Not really. http://www.made2game.com/xb...
Dude PC gaming has nearly every game and genre ever made... enough said. I am not going to list of games when we can all clearly see that your original statement was wrong and only your opinion not fact.
This is 2011, and there are barely any decent PC recent exclusive titles, which is to my understanding, the point of this discussion.
@Kharhaz Only console kiddies count the exclusives, they will even go ahead play the exclusives even if the exclusive is garbage. 90% of games out today are multiplat thats a fact. All of us know which platform those run better on. Its also not about running better PC versions offer Mods, which increases the replayability of the game.
@Ranshak "Only console kiddies count the exclusives." 'Well said' bubble vote added.
MMOs are not "games" until they come out for the PS3, amirite?
There are more PCs out there than ever before its just most o them are getting dated in terms of playing games.
when was the last time that was brought up? also love that something positive is always followed by something negative. "pc gaming is not dying" "yea the ps3 sucks"
When people say, "PC gaming is dying", it's a subjective term. In what sense? I can think of several scenarios in which PC gaming appears to be dying (relative to where it once was) and other instances which PC game is alive and well. Just depends WHAT you look at (exclusives, market share, quality, technological advance, etc...) and how much value you put on that aspect, whether or not PC gaming is "dying". I personally am happy to finally start seeing PC games show a glimpse of what next gen games will be like!
It's not dead by any means but it could be so much better if it weren't for dam hackers/pirates. I hate them with a passion. Even if its just Valve and Blizzard the PC gaming scene would still be alright
DICE I Support YOU!!!!!!!
Of course its bullshit. Steam ALONE makes billions in revenue.
Funny story of a student that lives a few doors next from me, he's always a consoler type of gamer aka "PC gaming is dead". Well funny how in philosophy class he has his Acer notebook on playing Solitaire during lecture. :P
