I've been gaming on PC for 20 years or more and I've never had such issues. I have waited 3 hours on painstakingly slow updates and patches on my PS3 games though, and I've played plenty of console games that ran poorly, had choppy framerates, glitching textures and massive pop-in issues. I haven't upgraded any of my hardware either for about 4 years now.

Purchasing, installing and playing games on Steam is no more difficult than purchasing, installing and using apps on a smart device; it just has a smaller audience. This whole fallacy that you have to be a tech wizard to game on PC's and that console games are simply pop the disc in and play, is getting old. Have you ever purchased a digital copy of a game on a console? Why are there digital stores at all, they are so difficult and should be of no interest to console gamers. Mainstream games sell less on PC as a rule, and there are several reasons for this, the PC being a clunky tool that people is too difficult to use is not one of them.

PS: Who would buy a game first and then check to see if they meet the hardware requirements later? If someone is that stupid; their PC is not the problem.

That is more than likely BS. I have a gaming desktop with an Nvidia card and a gaming laptop with an AMD card and have had issues out of both. I have a college degree in computer networking and am a A+ Certified computer technician and I have had issues but oddly enough PC gamers never have issues. Yeah.... I do not buy it

 

I like playing games on my PCs (probably about 15% of my gaming time is on PC) but to argue it is as easy to get into as consoles is nonsense


No offense, but in the tech industry referencing an A+ cert is like telling everyone you are clueless. Its an entry level certification thats required for entry level work. Its also a test that people can easily brain dump.

Second, an associate in Computer Networking is a good start -- but its also worthless unless you have the CCNA (No ... not the CCENT). The CCNA is about a magnitude of 100x better than the A+ for Networking, and the CCNP is about 10x better than that (with the CCNE another 10x better than the CCNP).

Nintendo Isn't Making a Comeback... at least not on this Gen...



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

All will be as it is.

3 consoles caa survive at the same time.



Switch!!!

Considering the fact that the Wii had virtually no impact on the competition I'm going to guess yes, Sony and Microsoft would do just fine.

last gen wii decimated sales charts for most of its life, ps3 and 360 did just fine.
even if the wiiu pulled a miracle 360 and suddenly became the best selling console of all time, xbo and ps4 would be fine.

Last gen was inflated.

LOL, I am not going into the networking field so I am not worried about the CCNA. (I choose a bad major). Yes the A+ is an entry level cert but I am just saying I am WAAAAAAAY above the average PC user and I have had issues.

 

For the record I am the head PC tech for my company in my area and I oversee 11 stores.

Just because you're the head, doesn't mean that you're automatically above everybody else. 

Your tone is kind of condescending.

Anyway, on topic. IMO the reason only 2 consoles can survive before PSWii360 era is because gaming is not as popular as it is now. 3 consoles can coexist and have healthy sales, even if not as much as GEN 7 sales.

It used to be the case that PC games were hard to get playing right but that was during the 90s.  Hell, I remember having trouble playing Diablo 1 even though my CPU met the required specs.  My parents had to have someone from church over to finally sort things out on why it wasn't working.  The only problem I have now is trying to install old games like Diablo 1 on my current PC.  The graphics are messed up or the videos don't play right in game.  Never had a problem with a Steam game though.  So he was right about PC being a pain in the ass but that was about two decades ago.

PC > Steam

I lost 14 hours on Sims 4, b/c of a crash when I forgot to save.

Sounds more of a user or game fault not enabling autosave while using main saves.  The crash was probably due to the game and not directly with Steam.  I'm surprised EA has games on Steam considering they try and push Origin.
