Many developers are being lured away from PC and Mobile platforms in favor of the PS4 and Xbox One according to the 2014 Toolbox Report from UK gaming industry group TIGA.

Bla bla bla They sad same about Pc is die and what happen?? Another stupid story...

Oh, PC is definitely not dying. It just looks like the new consoles are actually being effective at drawing some devs away. Mostly indies at this point. All it would take to bring them back would be some Steam adjustments.

PC gaming can't ever die really, and is stronger now than it has been in a long time. The article just says that some devs are moving away for a little while.

Consoles aren't taking away indies. More indies are just also developing for console, that's all. It doesn't mean PC is losing anything.

Article actually says it's because there's less competition on the new consoles lol

Yeah PC will never die as long as there are Steam sales and Humble bundles. I have at least 30 games I haven't touched yet.

Hate mobil gaming, so great

As long as I can get an optimized version of a current-gen console game, then I wouldnt care where the devs go. But there really arent too many AAA that are exclusive to PC. Star Citizen and Divinity aside, most of my wishlist consists of console ports.

from mobile thats awesome, from PC I think thats not good.

We need a gaming combination of PC and consoles to maintain in good health this game industry

You mean something like...dunno...a PC with the form factor of a console? That has a dedicated Gamepad and a UI that can be handled easily via TV and Controller? I heard legends about something glorious called Steam Machine maybe that is the savior of the gaming industry...
