The reality is that everybody is targeting console market because them moneyz and all ur ultra rigs, without mods, would be generally useless. Everybody remembers the famous " it's PC only nobody cares"line.Well, Xbox allows M+K, also there are mid gen upgrades, so only this 30FPS point stands, but still, with latest Samsung Game Motion Plus mode, there will be a great help for it.

Basically this is the answer why there is no PC AAA exclusives besides niche genres and indies. There is no need.

What is a fun game for you is your thing, Sony's games are scoring GoTy and got universal praise for their graphics/tech.

The PC is an absolutely massive platform. I wouldn't be so eager to discount it.


Does anyone want to let him know that consoles aren't the biggest market for revenue and profitability?, especially in terms of player size as well.

Also I fail to see how "ultra rigs" are made "worthless", that seems entirely baseless and more of a desired wish.

"it's PC, nobody cares", was one line found in a Ubisoft games text file, but that was about it, and even then it was hardly "world" infamous.

I like how it's just "30fps point stands, everything else is moot".

Thing is, it's not even a founded, objective "answer" as to why the title even exists.

"what is a fun game is your thing", which sounds awfully close to "your opinion on a game doesn't matter", especially when followed up by X console scoring meta reviews = being objectively better than anything in the known universe, kind of logic. 

I wouldn't be so eager to discount it myself, but here we are, one guy discounting it at every turn, no matter what, and he thinks he's objectively right. Either he's bad ad admitting defeat, or he's actually living up to his title name, and well, if it's the latter, that's not good.

 The PC market is quite healthy. Games don't exist because of consoles, consoles exist because of games. 

Consoles will never deliver the same experience as PC because the platform holders don't want it to do that, which is why all of these attempts to deliver slightly more power and freedom are only half assed.

Maybe there is a problem if even the most critically acclaimed games cannot sway PC fans to play on console.

Maybe it's because consoles can't even clear the lowest of lowest bar for choice in gaming. The restrictiveness of consoles is basically what fuels the PC market.  

Well, it depends what games we are talking about. Of course there is a bulk of PC only games, let's say MMOs, and you can not experience them elsewhere. This is fine. 

From bussines POV, multiplats aim for consoles, heck even Witcher 3 sold 70/30. That is why a new generation of consoles is like an earthquake for every gamer,developer and publisher. There is no escape. It's good that PC is pushing new tech of course, but it changes next to nothing, the consoles are a true change, like Bluray, HDR, and stuff. Because they are the mainstream.

Maybe this is a problem, I just wanted to highlight one thing -  despite lack of pure power, they can still deviler THE games and THE tech.

Most of PC fans, I guess, plays some freebie online game with a shitton of microtransactions, what is the biggest engine for the market. Browser games are 15% of the market, not the high  tech quality exclusives.



No dev would spend millions on a game for a tiny public that can afford the most powerful processor/GPU on the market. PC multiplat games are already a much better experience than the console counterparts for those who can afford the specs needed. It is more than enough. Currently, the 10 biggest games for PC when it comes to money making are F2P games that can run on cheaper specs, with the only exception being WoW which is P2P.
