The articleOur PC guy steps away from playing his MMO betas to talk about why the consoles are taking away all the good exclusives, and why it shouldn't bother PC gamers.
The predictions that PC gaming is on the way out seem to be fairly common these days. It's an argument that's easy to support with a seemingly endless stream of statistics showing console ownership on the rise and a shrinking number of PC exclusive A-list titles. Hell, this morning 360 owners are already playing the Bioshock demo, and us PC gamers are hoping they haven't forgotten about us.
Somewhat relevant to Miktars posting of the ESA reports. The report says $6.46 billion went to consoles and $0.97 to PC gaming. Which is confusing when you see the thousands of PC gamers piling into Rage. I'm sure a smaller percentage of console gamers would make the effort to join a thousand plus other console gamers to LAN. The markets are quite different though. In the US there is more access to broadband, why go out when you can stay in and network. Console to PC gaming ratio is probably very different in more developed countries than in SA.
