Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski Says New Devs Should Make For PC

Epic’s Cliffy “Cliffy B” Bleszinski B just told a huge crowd of developers at 2012′s GDC that when starting up a developer, forget Xbox Live, PSN, iOS, Android and Windows phones, and instead make games for PC. Condemning the way Microsoft and Sony treat indies, and dismissing mobile gaming, the Unreal developer said that the PC was the only place to start. (Cliffy B, Dev, Game Developers Conference, PC)

Problem with psn/xbl for indies is the price to publish. PC/Android/ios is dirt cheap to get your game out there.

I agree with Cliff on this one. 100%

PC is OPEN SOURCE and INDIE DEV friendly!

Put your game on STEAM and you will GET PAID!

Just Do it!

I also agree even being a console only player. Rather they release a game with a couple problems and be able to patch it all up. Instead of releasing a game with problems that never get patched cause they can't afford the $40,000 or however much it was.

Sure cliffy, and after you've milked all the PC gamers for all their worth, turn your backs on those who made you who you are today by badmouthing the PC platform saying that we're all pirates, and then sell-out to the console mouthbreathers.

Thanks cliffy.

Awww, no need to be mean it's only video games.

Now he is coming back saying were coming back to PC. Likely means Epic is done with exclusive games. At least that is my theory.

Its a PR game for the company. Epic had a long running Gears trilogy exclusive to Xbox 360. Now that is over or at least the trilogy part. Its possible another game might be made without that infringement.

everyone who was making exclusive games for the 360 or had some sort of exclusive deals with microsoft (dlc counts), were dissing pc...

Epic just announced an exclusive Ipad game, so your theory fails right there.
Epic's main business is the unreal engine. They want as many PC indie devs on it as possible

Did this dog just bite the hand that feeds?
kevnb  +   856d ago
ya, you almost have to be in the top 5% of well known devs to make a buck on consoles.

less restrictions/fees
