But PC is getting everything
>>
>>259580610
Because 1 billion is on toasters and yet anothe .1 billion is on computers from the 90ies or earlier.

Unable to run the NEXT GEN GAYMS that are currently released.
>>
Because M$ have abandoned Windows.
>>
That's blown out of proportion because those aren't all PC gamers. But you already knew that.

But your point isn't false, either. There's this false illusion that just because there are more pirates on PC, that you should keep your game off it. Which just isn't true. I buy every PC game and just emulate the ones from PS2, GameCube, and earlier.

If they actually re-released them on PC, then I'd buy them again.

Because consoles are guaranteed sales.

Problems with releasing for PC:

>Piracy
>Higher expectations that the PC crowd usually has
>More difficult marketing
>Kids would rather play it on console even if they own a PC

They just get fucking paid to release them on consoles. They also want consoles to sell good.

That's why they eat shit called unfinished alpha games and even pay money for it.

My sides.

Also looking at PC fanbase on /v/ I would say that kids play only on PC.
>>
>Console companies are consistently losing money
What will happen when they will no longer afford to pay for exclusives?
>>
>>259581115
No Man's Sky and Tomb Raider are confirmed timed exclusives, Silent Hills isn't confirmed yet but it's on the same engine as MGV V, so maybe.
>>
>>259580610
because most people didn't buy a pc to play games on, and most people's pc can't even handle last gen level games

exclusives will stop getting made

Lots of steamtard kids from /v/ play on PC, but they're not representative of the overall PC crowd. Vast majority of the PC gaming crowd is non-American and pirates their games.

And how many own a PC with a GPU to match Xbone/PS4? Geniunelly interested.

Considering they are better than 90% of PC's and very small percentage of PCfags can match them, no.
>>
>>259580610
Because just owning a PC doesn't mean it's capable of running a game.

>Proving him wrong

Well ain't that cute, considering:
>We've already got a large-scale hardware survey of PC gamers
>The survey has been dissected to reflect what percentage of users have a setup more capable than consoles
>The dissection of the survey is presented in pic related.

About 34% of Steam users have a PC more capable than consoles, with about 13% having one more capable than PS4, but this is for the -present-.

As the years go by, new generations of CPUs/GPUs will be released, since pricepoints are the same for identical budget models, you know what will happen?

Yeah that percentage will go up, slowly and surely, once consoles are halfways into their lifespan you'll probably see about 50-60% of PC users being on a more performant setup.

I don't see how this discussion is fucking relevant anyway as "most users" is a terrible metric, I'm on a setup that completely rapes the PS4 and Xbone, so I couldn't give less of a shit about others.
>>
>>259583794
About 38% and 18%*

Looked at the old version then uploaded the new, what are the odds?

Better than the consoles seeing any new gens.
>>
>>259583794
>you know what will happen?
Even less PCfags will have PC comperable to PS4 because console sales are growing quickly?
>>
>>259583194
That's kindergarten level answer. You are proving that PC fanbase is full of toddlers.
>>
>>259584808
Ok.

>>259580610
Because 10 million sales > 1.2 billion pirates.
>>
>>259584447
Someone doesn't know that the traction of cumulative revenue takes form sooner or later and stagnates; and again it doesn't matter, you're having a discussion with me right now, not others, I'm on a setup that completely rapes the PS4, any additional sales doesn't suddenly make the PS4 hardware better.

Then again I'm talking with a kid who's pulling stats. out his ass, so to save myself another reply:

Consolefags BTFO

I don't give a shit about this because:
1.We are talking about PC gaming community as whole not only you.

every one of those 1.2 billion PCs can max out the witcher 3 amirite? :)

Because out of that 1.2 billion maybe 5 million actually have computers even half as good as current gen consoles. And that's ignoring the fact that probably half of that 1.2 billion is work computers that are about on par with a middle-tier build in 2006.

Piratism and constantly changing specs. For consoles, you make the game fit consoles powers, which means less working and optimizing in long term.

>In before consoles have piratism too.
Yes, but overall PC is fucking flooded with piratism while consoles are not.
>>
Because PC owners are too busy making threads on /v/ with biased pictures and shitting "facts" at each other on forums.

Also where the fuck do you get your numbers from?
