>They sell so well, they ditch pachinko and return to game development

When have you EVER heard of a console port selling so well it revived a company?

Do consolefags actually like vidya anymore?

>Agatsuma ports Umihara Kawase trilogy on PC
>It sells so poorly the company goes under and the games get removed from storefronts

>Any multiplat gets a PC port
>Gets about 10% of overall sales

Don't delude yourself, you didn't buy shit. That's why PC gaming is dead.

They're innovators going against the grain and refusing to follow their competition. They're visionaries.

That post purchase rationalisation though

When will the Pachinko meme die?
In 2014 Konami only released PES 2014, Lords of Shadow 2 and Ground Zeroes, and those 3 games managed to make almost 3 times more than their Pachinko division.

>Sega & SNK port a few ancient games to PC
>They work on the toasters 90% of Steam users have, so they sell well enough the devs are considering porting even more ancient garbage

PC gaming is alive, as long as you release old ass games or retropixel indieshit that can run on masterracer's prebuilt shitboxes.
>>
>>322335171
SNK haven't done anything worthwhile since Garou, though. Post-99 KoF and all those half-assed compilation fighters like NGBC and SvC Chaos were terrible.

>>322337541
Mad as fuck consolecuckie, I see.

>>322337912
Why should I be mad? I'm not signing a petition every time I want to play an actual game.

Perfect

>>322337990
Yup, mad as fuck consolecuckie.
Thanks for keeping Yakuza long enough to let it come to PC.

>>322335171
Hopefully SNK prospers now that they're back to game development. And hopefully we get a new Metal Slug.
>>
>>322337912
>>322337994
It's not wrong. Unless the game is a modder's delight and you can run it on low graphix ala Skyrimsexdungeon, or it's so assold or asspixels that PC users shitboxes can actually run it, if neither of those are true then the PC market share is super low. The percentage of PCs that can actually run new games at glorious 60fps1080p is so astronomically low its barely worth mention.

>>322338256
>And hopefully we get a new Metal Slug
Please no.

>>322337994
Wow, at last your PC can run a PS3 game, what an achievement.

>>322338085
Wishful thinking and a lack of source doesn't bend reality. But go on, delude yourself that soon you will be finally playing some games.
>>
>>322337541
So just like the current console market?
>>
>>322338393
>already in denial
Don't worry, we will keep SNK alive, seeing as how you consolecucks were too busy playing CoD to care about actual good developers.
>>
>>322338312
those users were never part of the market in the first place, dummy. downloading bejeweled from steam doesn't make you a gamer

Let me rephrase that. Get a good not rushed one.

Just like you kept these guys alive, huh.
And no, buying a game months later 90% off doesn't qualify as caring about developers.

lol

>>322335171
Yes, they do.
It's just that the WiiU and the PS4 are both extremely unattractive for Japan.
And no, it's not mobile's fault, just look at the 3DS.
Just wait for their next platforms, I'm sure they'll do much much better.
>>
>>322338927
>makes obscure bizarre game, goes bankrupt
No shit, steam is already full of shit games. You either stand out or get shit sales.
>>
>>322335997
Agatsuma went down because they were always extremely retarded.
What broke them was the extremely pointless Sayonara Umihara Kawase Vita port that sold absolutely nothing and left a bad aftertaste on the Umihara fanbase that supported the 3DS game, all this over the already bad rep not updating CoP Japanese release gave them.
The Steam ports were too late and not advertised in any way.
They were simply a terrible publisher.
There are much smaller ones on Japan, some consisting of just a couple people, but are much more clever and actually know how to do well.

>I don't know this game, so it's obscure and bizarre
I sure hope not every PC gamer is as retarded as you are

No thats just the twitch, trying to find miracles that dont exist, before the rope tightens around their neck.

The PS4 is so dead in Japan and the PS5 is obviously very far away.
Only the NX can save console gaming there.
