[QUOTE="Decon116"]I hope us gamers come together and unite.Yes everyone loves to rip on Microsoft, but they are doing some good things as well. I hope cross platform takes off. Maybe then it wont be a question of PC vs. Console, but rather all gamers will be content with whatever system they choose to play on. Call me a sellout or whatever, but once Vista is worth a damn, I'll get it and I'll pay for crossplatform, cause thats how i want the gaming community run. In the end its about having fun... blowing up people on consoles who think they are better ;)Deihmos

Yep it's all about having fun and that is all i ever cared about.

I agree. There is no reason to hate on each other. We all play games and we should all be supportive of the platforms in any shape:console or PC. Anything that moves and matures our hobby/industry can't be a bad thing. PC gamers should love the consoles because they've brought people who wouldn't normally play games into it. Console gamers should love the PC because they still offer different experiences that the consoles are just starting to get into. It is a cycle. Get along and stop trying to justify your purchases with some arbitrary feature. Every platform has its advantages and disadvantages. The most inportant thing here is just to understand that we are all here for one reason: to game.

You know if I was to use the percentages I would say that 55% isn't a bad chunk of the industry. But then if you look at it 45% isn't too bad either. If I was to say why everyone is saying that PC gaming is dieing, using just the numbers you've provided to start this forum, itis because, since consolegaming has become more mainstreamits numbershave grown noticeably. Seeing that the PC market has always been there, and seems to be kind of stagnating, people see this as a decline. In actuality themarketfocus has shifted not necessarily that any one platform is dieing or is a "step child."

[QUOTE="SKOPY291"]Hey man... you forgot the price of Vista. I'd also factor in the convenience charge of having a console, for some people constantly upgrading their computer to get the most out of their gaming and then making sure everything works properly just isn't something they want, nor have the time to learn how to do. And as I said if you're upgrading your PC at least once a year to keep up with the changing suggested specs you're dumping more into a system which isn't an option for most PC gamers. Personally, I believe that you'll eventually spend more on a computer and that's okay because you can get a lot out of a computer. makemeweak

You wouldn't need Vista to match the graphics of console games, just XP or Linux. Also, you wouldn't need to upgrade to keep on the same playing field as consoles, only if you wanted something that could do better. I believe TC's point is that console quality graphics don't require a huge investment, not that PC gaming isn't expensive to upgrade.

I did miss that part about console graphics... I still believe it is a valid point... perhaps not as much for this board as I originally thought

Hey folks, I was just playing Resistance and just noticed something very sad... I only have 2 buddies on my list and they both live 4 time zones away from me. Neither of these friends I've ever personally met but I'd like to think of them as "buddies." It's so much harder to get friends on Xbox then PS3 becauseI know more people who can afford the former.I onlyhave two questions for all of you:

1) How many buddies do you have on your PS3 buddy list?

2) And will anyone be friends with me?

If you will send a buddy request to Kopy, you would really help a guy out if you could be my friend.

People don't seem to understand that consoles cost a lot more in territories outside of the US. In NZ it's much better to just build a gaming PC. In the US, it's cheaper and more convenient to buy a console for most people.Coldplay07

This is a good point... I wish I would have had the foresight to make a comment about that. I still believe that in the same time as a console cycle you could still end up paying more updating your computer to keep up then you would in a console. It all depends how much you're willing to spend in half a decades time
