Consoles will never die because companies would still want closed hardware to be sure games won't be pirated at least two years from console release so they can get money from games.
And custom hardware doesn't mean much. If it's cheaper to produce x86 closed machines, industry will produce them.

Intel/AMD, nVidia/ATI shitposting would intensify tenfold.
>>
The opposite will be what happens, since you pcfaggots only pirate games or buy them when they are at a insultingly low price (to the dev) and with tablets and smartphones taking over the space that PCs had in most people's life (browsing internet, games etc). PC will become a platform for small devs to make a name for themselves mostly, it already started with CDPR, Mojang, etc.

In a decade or two PCs will literally only have indies, every dev that actually wants to make money will release games on consoles only. In fact in a decade or two PCs won't even be a common household item I bet, it will return to its old status of being a machine for working.

>>323045740
If you made pies, that you know are worth $8 or at the least $5 (a fair discount) wouldn't you feel insulted that to be able to sell a pie that you made specially for a segment of the people in your area you need to sell it at $1 in even though it cost the same to make as the $8 pie that everyone else bought. And no one else can buy this $1 pie because it's some niche pie that needs a special fork or whatever make this part up yourself.

You still lower the price $1 because $1>0 and you need money, but sooner or later you'll probably stop making that pie especially when less and less people have that special fork

Now see, if the game were multi-plat, it would be judged actively as the game itself and no by what it's on. As is, nobody except rich fags and people with bad priorities can play it.
And that's all they get to play.

It would be fucking awful. The strength of PC is the elitism. We still get niche quality shit instead of watered down generic garbage like the consolefags do. We can pirate which forces user friendliness. If a game comes out missing half its content we know day 1, why do you think Destiny never made it to PC?

Consoles are for children, them having them keeps those children off our platform.

It's not a food analogy, its a business analogy I just picked pies because I thought you fatsos might better understand the point.

>>323046093
>>323046071
I already made an analogy for that but whatever that wasn't even my biggest point, my biggest point was that PCs are in their way to disappear from the household, and believe it or not lots of casuals also play on PC even if they don't have the specs to run the game well. About 3 or 4 of my friends bought FO4 for PC and they run it on lowest settings with sub 20 fps. Why? Don't fucking ask me but they do, and more than half the people that use Steam don't have rigs much better than what my friends have.

AAA studios have to get funded somehow. Console manufacturers are able to give them a lot of money, in exchange for having exclusive content/games on their console, which is good for the console manufacturers because they make a little bit of money off of each game that's sold.

Though, if PC gaming did take over, we might see instead of console manufacturers funding studios, it's done by API designers and other software developers. So maybe Epic games might fund a studio to make their game with UE4, but every game that uses UE4 has to pay a small royalty to Epic(That's actually how it works currently, though I don't know if Epic have ever funded any AAA games). So I guess it could work the same way if PC were the only platform.

>>323047278
Did you even read the OP? If consoles died and there was only PC, there wouldn't need to be multiplats in the first place.
>>
>>323048267
This is would be true of more people owned gaming PCs, but there are far more consoles out there than gaming PCs.

>>323049257
Oh please, don't speak of console as one big platform. The "proprietary fork" argument works so well against consoles because of how stratified it is. Want to play that old game from 5 years ago? Too bad, Gamestop doesn't stock them anymore. Want to play this other game? Too bad it's exclusive for that console.

>I seriously hope you enjoy indie games, that's all you'll get
I, for one, welcome the return of the AA development scene. The right balance of high enough budget for beautiful games and high enough passion for great games.

There's lots of room for innovation, but the majority of non-sustenance money transfer is for education and entertainment. There are over 19M fresh internet users per month. There's plenty of room for both.

What's the point of consoles even existing anymore if a console is just a fucking PC anyway?

It was different ages ago when your SNES could do SuperFX and Mode 7 and shit like that which your 386 rig couldn't dream of, but now every plastic box, whether it's a PS4, PC or Xbone has practically the exact same godamn hardware in it.

Yeah I'd love to live in a world where all gaming is dictated by Valve via Steam. They practically have a monopoly on PC gaming as it is, and you wish they were bigger? As in, literally the only place anyone buys games?

I'm sorry, I like PC gaming as well as console, but it has its own huge, glaring issues that you all seem to ignore while constantly spouting its up sides in relation to gaming on console.

>all games would become digital, you never have a physical disc with the game on it in your possession again, just the license
>Steam becomes absurdly more powerful and thus even more capable of abusing its user base, paid mods come back to stay, EULA changes and doesn't even try to be reasonable
>all those projects that could only have existed with console manufacturers picking up the bill never get off the ground
>without publishers really being a factor, AAA games cease to exist, which may sound good at first, but then
>indie survival Greenlight games become the new law, everything is indie, everything appeals to what gets sold the most via early access

The loss of console exclusive games would hurt the most. You tards don't ever think about it, but most of the greatest games ever made where paid for by console manufacturers looking for something to be exclusive to their shitbox. All those beloved SEGA titles, JRPGs, Nintendo games, ect wouldn't have existed had PC been the only platform from the beginning. Nintendo, Sony, and to a lesser extent, Microsoft, have given a lot of studios the chance to make the games they would never have been able to otherwise, because the console wars are a source of competition.

You think "without consoles, devs would just compete directly on PC, no hardware wars". You're very wrong. Look at how games "compete" on Steam as it is. Look at the kinds of garbage that wins. If anything this industry needs MORE, heated competition, more good exclusives across all systems, and more than a race for fucking second against Sony.
