the reason you even have game in the first place
is the console
You don't know sh*t about gaming industry
nor video entertainement business
you really need to get off your computer to understand
why Devs can make games to begin with
Despite all the performances of a computer,
the cost of it, the complexity of the machine
would have never appealed to a massive market
so it would have NEVER build a strong targeted market (Especially when it concerns a part of the population
that is young and can't afford expensive stuff themselves)
(understand it's not only the price of a pc,
But Also how, a young and massive audience, could approach the complexity of an contineously evolved technology
no common kid would like to spend time fixing new GPU on his PC, he wants to play.)
Hence, it would have never generated this kind of money. Never. and Gaming would be reserved for an elit
Consoles might be outdated, might be responsible for the slowness of gaming those last years
But AT THE VERY SAME TIME
they are the reason why Publishers, Editors can spend millions on AAA Games, and Dev Teams
to make games that you would like
gaming industry would have never got this big without the console
it's all about the market.
Constant evolving expensive complex computer, would have never built an equal market for gaming
Indeed, Pc gamers are still outnumbered,
And PC Gamers love to play games on their computers that were intended for CONSOLES!
(yes with better graphics...)
but in fact, you pleasure actually depend on the console market
(don't bring that WOW, Diablo sh*t... it's not the core audience)
POINT BLANK PERIOD.
If you are a computer player
you should be glad there are consoles
or you wouldn't have High Class games with incredible budget (not always great i agree)
even if it's slowing down the evolution.
Thank you for attenting this lesson.
No but at the very same time the console wouldnt become so big if there wasnt no PC. So what you say is a load of bullsh*t. I never said anything about consoles holding down SALES. But it is holding down the GAMES IT SELF.
PC gaming is not for everyone, but console gaming is also not for everyone. And it bugs me that people are really ignorant about pc, when they dont know sh*t about it. Try it for once.
