So now what, we have a PCGA that is suppose to help bring back pc gaming. Yet they I havent heard of any problems or solutions to the problems in improving PC gaming. So Ill list a few possible problems and the solutions to them.
1. Quality. Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft all have quality control of the games from third party publishers and developers. They dont allow just anyone and everyone to make a game to help avoid putting too many sloppy made games that would drive customers awat from buying their consoles. PC gaming have no such quality control. We have seen time and time again of poorly made games with poor control handling and bad optimizing.
2. Exclusives. There isnt a whole lot of exclusives for the PC. Last year highlight for the PC was Crysis. Anyone console gamer who have heard of Crysis would know of one thing, PC. PC gaming need more exclusives that would encourage people buy or build a gaming pc.
3. Education and marketing the gaming PC. Mike Sweeney from Epic games not too long ago commented how poorly Best buy and all the big retail stores in marketing pcs that would play games. PCGA should educate people about the gaming pc. Coming to sites like Gamespot, IGN, Games for Windows website and retail stores in providing fast and quick information about the PC someone should get to play the games they want. Listing various amounts of hardware specs of a low end gaming pc, medium range, high end, and ultra high end pc specs along with the price.
4. Price. Alienware, Dell, HP, FalconNW and other brand name computers market up their pcs way way too high. Someone who want to get a decent computer that would last a few years would have to spend over $3000. This might be a sticker shock for someone who isnt ready on how expensive pc gaming is. PCGA should encourage PC manufactuers in keeping the price down to help grow the PC gaming market. Yeah maybe everyone should build their own computer, but if someone is new at pc gaming then there is no way from them to know how to build a computer. There best source for a computer would be from a prebuilt manufactuer like Dell and HP.
