Think the PC is dying and console gaming is king? It's actually going the other way
Def becoming a PC gamer next year!
I'll become a PC gamer once I get a job as there are some games on the PC that I really want to play. PSVITAlitysensor I can't say that I'm interested in any current Nintendo consoles. I liked the Gamecube and Gameboy but have never owned any others, I think the Wii is crap.
Do PC gaming, but always buy Nintendo consoles.
Just get this through your head already. PC gaming as far as graphics concerned will NOT move till next Gen consoles arrive! Most PC games today are just shinier version of consoles games in full HD. The jump from god of war 2 to 3 is next Gen. The jump from gta III to gta IV is next Gen. A maxed out version of a current Gen game is NOT! The hardware on PCs is truly capable of next Gen graphics, but the games today aren't too much demanding and made with consoles in mind, and it won't move till the lowest common denominator get upgraded (consoles) And yet a I raise The question that nobody answered: If today's PC games look next Gen then give me only ONE game on the PC in the Xbox/ps2 era that looks better than today's games.
The article has nothing to do with graphics. The writer is criticizing the focus on big budget mega-franchises at the expense of a more creative and less risk-averse small-budget gaming scene.
LMAO, ur entire comment is about graphics..yet there is nothing about graphics in my comment. I want to have the ability to modify my games and play them how I want to play them..which is my primary reason for wanting to be a PC gamer. Talk about not reading the article before posting...theres NOTHING in it about graphics.
How can I assume that when everybody is raving about "get next Gen NAW with PC!"
@LOGICWINS You'll miss out on new Yakuza games. Edit:@Outside_ofthe_Box Thats what I was thinking, glad I was wrong as Logic is a Yakuza fan and we need them in the west.
"You'll miss out on new Yakuza games." LOOOOOL...who said I wasn't getting next-gen consoles as well? Another person who only sees the world in black in white. Since when does saying that your going to become a PC gamer mean that you forgo the opportunity to be a console gamer?
@MrDead- You def misunderstood what I said. No harm, no foul. Btw, where did you hear that Yakuza games are already being developed for next-gen? Thats great!
"Since when does saying that your going to become a PC gamer mean that you forgo the opportunity to be a console gamer?" When you say it in a "Why the next generation of consoles might be nothing but a reason to SWITCH to PC gaming instead" article.
Neither console gaming or PC gaming isn't going anywhere. No matter how much your inner fanboy wants it to.
Current High End PC = Next Gen
haha so true
DERKADER you're right but current high end pc hardware will unlike right now on pc actually take full advantage of next gen consoles with engines optimised for those consoles since developers will push everything they possibly can out of that hardware new pc technology will almost never be utilised beyond a small part of that hardware sadly so for console gamers pc gaming shouldn't matter whatsoever..
DERKADER you're wrong... current High End PC= Next, Next,Next Gen
Next Gen will look better than current high end PC's.
I'll take PC and console gaming thanks.
You tell em Moss, why limit yourself to one system? I enjoy my PS3 games just as much as my PC's, I'm playing Resistance 3 on my PS3 (Which is one of the best FPS I’ve played in a very long time) and Grim Fandango on my PC, if I didn't have both these systems I would be missing out as a gamer.
This is very true Wintersun616. I have just passed on my playstation 3 to my little sister after having some good times with it since the buigging of the s3 ive had 2x 60gb models and 1x 250gb slim i have upgradeed the drives and ive had a blast. But my son is 3 hes growing all hands on so my system has been clogged with dvd's EERRGGHH. I have now resorted back to PC gaming were i started with a keyboard zx 48k now im ending on my PC i have seen it all but to be honist i think thats it weve seen all there is to see on all consoles this gen. more and more matchmaking less and less servers dediacated So now i have been gaming solid on my pc for past 3 months i have gone back tryed the ps3 but to be honist my eyes cant adapt without being picky fussy. maybe im a graphics nut. so i cant wait for ps4 to see what that can bring us even next xbox or nintendo but ultimatly PC has always been there we have our own exclusives we have most of all the 3rd party titles, Ill miss new god of war if they do mak one on ps3 but thats how it is for me. but one thing i did take away from console gaming for past 8 years from moving from pc gaming is im not using 360 controller on pc lol, yes its a disadvantage but relaxing too that being said i maybe after this. http://store.razerzone.com/... http://www.youtube.com/watc... as i loved my move setup.
Does PC have God of War? Gran Turismo? Mario? Uncharted? LittleBigPlanet? Halo? No, No and No. I'll stick to consoles thank you very much.
I have Halo 1 & 2 on my PC
Do consoles have endless mods, Diablo, DotA, Starcraft, ARMA, Counter Strike, Total War, Witcher 2, Stalker, non-buggy Half Life games, Red Orchestra, Civilization, and the hundreds of indie games that come out all the time? No, No, and No. I'll stick with PC and consoles thank you very much.
The witcher 2 and counter strike Go are both coming to consoles...
^Well, you know what I'm trying to say :)
hope next gen diablo 3 comes to wii U :DDDDD and other pc exclusive games thanks to the touch screen. :DDD
I guess you miss understood me or ignorant GraveLord. I put in hundreds of hours in gt5 thankyou very much i have kept my logitech gt force wheel from gt5 for pc. Ive had every single uncharted gow 3 is one of my if not my most favord game on ps3. You missing that im not hating the ps3 i loved it still love the way sony is supporting there supporters. But im a old time gamer i know when a cnsole has reached its peak doesnt mean to say its crap great new ip's comming.. Just as stated things in my life changed bit now guess you dont have kids and wife..? Not only that i had 30plus games all move stuff to boot i would had around 60 or more but i did alot of selling to buy new games ect. I didnt sell my ps3 lightly well sold good price to my sister hell part me hates that i did it but time has come i seen it was for me not possible.. maybe one day you own a pc trust ke once you get that BUG that all pc gamers has youll see why. Sorry you feel like that but as for sony hey im still a fan of sony cos the way they support inovate give back. Also there starting to work with pc side things.
I don't enjoy dedicating myself to just one platform. That's why I have Steam, 360, PS3 and Wii. That way I miss out on nothing.
I agree that consoles are being taken over by the call of duties. But the reality is that we are peaking on the cost of development. The next generation should be nothing more than a much more powerful versions of the same consoles. The movement will be in the number of cores and the amount of RAM. Of course there will be new technology involved with the machines, like additional threads and bigger caches. But it will be basically the same chip and therefore will have very slight learning curves. Graphics can only go so far. Too much realistic blood and they won't be allowed. So the future is AI, destruction and more physics. With the addition of new control systems like the Wii U pad and Kinect, consoles will be on a level that will fit the majority of the publics need without the heavy price of PCs.
I think the reason why he said that is because, PC parts like CPU and GPU for example are getting more cheaper and cheaper every year, so it's really enticing to buy or assemble a PC instead of buying a console. Plus mid-range PC visual owned consoles by 10x, therefore, by the time x720 and ps4 arrives, it will probably dead-on-arrival because PC willk be affordable even though you only put 1st or 2nd generation CPU or 2009-ish GPU, you can enjoy a photo-realistic visuals. @4k resolution @60fps
Next Gen? Take your pick! In one corner of the PC gaming club we have Battlefield 3. Graphically it's a powerhouse that looks better than any game I have ever played and has superb sound. But what matters more than that is it has the most superbly designed and massively details maps I have ever seen in a multiplayer game. Notice how current generation consoles cannot handle said maps and how they have been significantly shrunk down in additons to a smaller maximum player cap added. In the other corner we have games like minecraft that might look like crap but encourage creativity that is not possible with any consoles game. In fact the only thing that comes close is maybe Little big planet. That's just two reasons.
