I dont care if PC got over 400 games this year and consoles 100. I only buy like 12games in a year and the best/most games is on consoles imo. You cant say best exclusives is on PC it is only an opinion.

It will take many many years before 4k is standard resolution and i wont change my 1080p tv anytime soon. PC may have many games but most of them is simple indie trash anyway...

You literally just wrote that the pc has 4x as many games as consoles, then in the very next sentence claimed that the most games are on consoles. Let me guess, you're a console kid? That was a rhetorical question...

imo=in my opinion= games i am interested in

devs preference for making pc games

laugh out loud

Yeah that graph is totally accurate look at how 7.47% of developers would make games on Vita,and only 1.90% on 3DS,lol so the vita has 3+ times more developers than the 3DS.?

1440p isn't 4k.hahhahaahaa

Your numbers are fake. Newzoo is not even trustful source. They said PS4 is more powerful PC

You lost

You don't need to know about technology to know about finances,so you don't need to know which GPU is the strongest,when your expertise is knowing which is making more profits and which has higher market value.

To make a Hamburger you don't need to know how stoves work..lol

LOL i love pc gamers, the air of self delusion and self superiority is completely off the scale.

You may have more power than the new consoles but show a me a single pc game that completely and fully takes advantage of every single feature of your new $500 graphics card....

PC gaming will always be led by the consoles whether you like it or not, so while u all sit there feeling smug and superior us console gamers are all laughin at u for having all of this potential but only using it at console level.

You mean, the lowest common denominator is led by budget consoles? no kidding batman... welcome to pretty much any industry out there.

Still doesn't change the facts though. PC Gaming is bigger, better and dominating.

http://www.technobuffalo.com/2014/06/26/minecraft-on-consoles-outsells-pc-version-54-million-sold-to-date/

Just PS3 xbox 360 is not even on wii,on a game that barely release on PS3 and what for years first on 360,imagine if the game was on PS3 and wii since day 1 for how much more it would have outsold the PC version.

Piracy ruins PC and is the reason why more and more developers are making the jump to consoles,and 4k PC are a huge huge minority on PC,hell by steam stats 32% which is the biggest by far play on 1080p,and a good 24% after that on 1366x768...lol few gamers go for 4k dude very few,the problem with PC is that people like you want to pretend that every one owns a powerful rig is a joke call me when 50% of steam reach at least 1080p before even talking about 4k.

I like how the article left out price... which is the most important factor.

I switch from PC gaming about 3 years ago. I was sick of having to keep up to date and upgrade at least one component a year (around £300 minimum PER YEAR) just to keep ontop of that ever breaking wave of games.

PC gaming has its fedelity and yes its impressive (BF4 on PC is an entirely different beast to PS4) but the drawback of PC are massive and cannot be ignored

Personally... i'm happy i shifted to console. Spent what i would have in a single year on hardware for one product which will keep me happily gaming for the next 5 years at least. I'll use the other £1200 MINIMUM saved on somthing more worth while. This is the major issue. Who has that much money just to throw around.... and any hermit who banters on about PC superiority and doesn't recognise this fact is either an ignorant bellend with lots of money, or are just trolling. So can we put this topic to sleep again for the 500th time?

Price is not the most important factor. The most important factor in gaming is... well...gaming. If the price were important for our hobbies, then people wouldn´t buy quality stuff like sport cars, Fender's guitars, 5-star restaurant food etc. Everybody would drive Hondas and eat in McDonalds.

Jump to console? Look at Crytek at the moment and please the pc version version outsold the xbox360 one for a long time it wasn't until a release from the ps3 combines that was able to surpass sales. I like how console fanboys act like their prefer console are so different from one another but than go around including sales from the other to try and make a point against pc.

Yeah i guess that is why the PS3 won the generation,because price is not important,i guess that is why only a miserable 12% of gamers on steam have GPU stronger than the PS4 when those GPU exist since 2010,and i guess that is why every one own dual TItan GPU with Intel i7 extreme editions,because price isn't important.lol

Funny one of the reason why store like McDonalds i so successful is because it serves cheap food fast,so does Burger King and those fast food that outnumber fancy expensive restaurant by what like 1,000 to 1.?

Price is always important as is the reason not every one drives a damn Ferrari dude stop grasping.

But surpass it PC are many with different spec and all are accounted in the same category so are consoles,also Crysis came years first on PC latter on xbox 360.

Oh and COD each year sell better on consoles,hell MW2 sold 290k copies on PC by the years end when it was out,and was downloaded illegally 4 million times,the 360 version was download 1 million times and still the xbox 360 version alone destroyed what MW2 sold on PC,if you joined the PS3 version the beating was even more abysmal.

I didn't know upgrading every 4-5 years is "often" and $80 dollars to upgrade something as simple as a GPU is a "higher price"

12% of 75 million is 9 million so that;s more than the PS4 userbase so I wouldn't say miserable. And again Steam users is not all of the PC gamers I wish you would understand that.

That is barely more than the PS4 which had 7 million by early April and now should be on those same 9 millions.

By the way 9 million users with stronger hardware than the PS4 when GPU stronger than the PS4 exist since 2010 is a joke,that is what 2.25 million stronger than PS4 GPU sold by year.? The PS4 has barely 8 months and already is basically tied with that number,and by this year end should be at 13 or 15 million sold surpassing those who own a stronger than PS4 GPU quite easy.

This. For all we know those numbers just come from like 20 million steam users that do the survey with every computer they own, instead of the around 75 million total users. We don't even know if those 75 million steam users represent all of PC gaming.

Depends on the game. Sony exclusives usually are. It took 5 years for the first hacker to show up on the legendary Killzone 2.

Gaming online on PC is full of hackers, people running on different framerate, and different peripherals. Consoles its so much more even, much less hacks, same framerate... ect.

You don't need a huge percentage of steam users participating in the survey to get an accurate representation.

Also the average steam using pc gamer has a better pc than the average non steam using pc gamer. WoW and LoL are the most popular non steam games and have very low reqs.

because nobody gives a shit about PC gaming. the only reason why it makes those crazy figures when looking at it is because of mmos and mobas, which i guarantee you pretty much no console gamer could give a rats ass about even if they were commonplace on them.

and debating open hardware that's different for everyone and constantly improving if you have the money is pointless and only those with self esteem issues would do it.

I distinctly remember last console generation (from the release of the Xbox 360 to the release of the Wii U) that the PC had more high-rated exclusives than all three console platforms combined.

millions and millions playing games nobody on consoles would care about and devs making small time games nobody has even heard of. you can get anal over what I mean when I say "nobody" but it's pretty clear.
