That’s what I actually meant, but I typed the wrong thing and did not realize it or proof-read my post until now.
Yeah, oops, I meant million.
Again, PC gaming market is not the same as the PC market. The PC market is shrinking, which is bad for Nvidia because that is the hardware they deal in. The PC gaming market refers to the games. Steam alone has over six billion people on right now, and that is hardly a small number.
The PC market and PC GAMING market are not the same markets. This is a fallacy perpetrated by those that do not realize that there is a difference between the two. The PC gaming market has actually grown by over a third of what it was in the last two or three months.
So far I have yet to see one thing a console does that a PC can’t do though.
If a person doesn’t want to play ANY of the many exclusive PC titles that are available to them they have some problems.
Also, old man yells at windmill. News at 11.
I don’t mind that, but when console gamers attack the PC with “facts” that are actually just lies based on their own ignorance it seems like I should return the favor by correcting them. I have never, ever, said anybody should only game on a PC. I didn’t even come to this thread to argue that particular point, but reading through the comments feels like a reading the thoughts of a bunch of indoctrinated console gamers.
You pretty much summed up how I feel about the industry right now.
You must being buying eMachines to game on.
For one, I’m glad that AMD is getting some business. I think a world where Nvidia is the only GPU maker would suck a lot of balls for everyone.
A PC doesn’t have apps because it has programs, which are far superior to apps. Also, there is this thing called a web browser that allows you access to even more content than a console app will ever allow.
I can remember the last time a major update bricked my PC like it was yesterday… Wait, no, that never happened.
PC upgrades do have to happen, but making a point about it as if it’s a huge deal is a bit off the mark. The reality is that, while one does have to upgrade their PC, it usually still lasts longer than a console. If one has a good base PC all they should really have to upgrade is their graphics card, and even that will only have to happen once every three to five years, because console gaming holds back graphics advancement as it is. Even if one doesn’t upgrade their graphics card they don’t have to miss out on much since there are a lot of VERY good games that are not even that graphically intensive.
I would not call it glaring, but it is definitely something that should be pointed out.
It always amazes me how people blatantly lie and expect to not be called out on it. First off, graphics updates are not required, they are a very good idea but they are not required. Second, even IF your game is being anal and actually requires a driver update for some unknown reason, these updates take about a minute to download and install total, if that. Third, if you only buy three games in ten years you are missing out on a metric ass load of good games from developers that are not big enough yet to get the attention of the likes of Activision or EA. Mostly this just means that these huge publishers will not ruin a very good game and water it down for the console. If you are not lying about your experience with PC you are very, very, ignorant. Which I find a worse offense in most cases since you are willfully ignoring the huge advantages of the platform in order to make your own point look better.
Also there is this list: link
You obviously have no idea what you are talking about. Or are you trying to tell me you can play the Witcher on console without waiting years to get it? Not the Witcher 2, the Witcher. This is not the only game either, there are many new games that are only available on PC, both right now and in the future. Here’s a link of upcoming games if you don’t believe me.
OOHH YEEEEAAH! I am the Macho Gamer Randy Savage! Dig it!
Some crappy video that does a bad job of making any relevant points sums this up for you?
First off, this should be a given. Second, seeing as Nvidia has a large amount of money wrapped up in PC gaming and none in consoles for this generation, I find this statement highly suspect.
This reminds me of one of those really terribly produced public access shows that used to infest television.
OOOOOH YEEEEEAAAAAH! DIG IT!
I think this is why all the arguing fanboys irritate the crap out of me right now. I really wish people would just choose a system and leave the rest of us lone to form our own opinions.
