Blame Microsoft, they take formally PC exclusive companies and make them make 360 exclusives games lol. Thus is why 360 has many PC converts.

you mean Crytek right

No I mean Ensemble.

Epic are still an independent studio and only partner with Microsoft. They can still make PC exclusive games if they want.
It's not any fault of Microsoft, the developers see the install base of the consoles, and they see that all the money is made there.

Never played any of Epic's games, I should sometime.

You've never played Gears or Unreal, damn you've missed out on some quality games.

I don't get why people say "missed out" when the game is still on store shelves.

Anyway, I was considering purchasing them.

The campaign alone is worth a purchase of Gears.

Agreed, Gears 1 and 2 are both great gaming experiences. I think its on the list for a must play for 360 owners.

Sigh... if one thing pc gaming is heading to it is success
playing oblivion on Ps3 or xbox is NOTHING compared to the Pc oblivion
i jjust downloaded fable TLC to my pc and hey!
fable TLC is by far my Fav fable so far
and it works better, faster and you can mod it Surprised
seriously modding is more famous then ever that is why TES and fallout are appealing
to gamers they are awsome to begin with
and you can make 'em more awsome

Pc will always be my fav however console gaming are more how to put it relaxing and fun sometimes

Right, just like GTA IV on PC was nothing compared to the consoles. The difference was that the console versions actually worked.

i know why pc gaming is dying

- because all 360 / PC games are almost always better on pc (not controllers however)
- because Pc gaming is cheap
- because people play all online games like WoW and such
- Because almost 75 % likes pc more then consoles

---------------

now i like 360 because of
Halo and other 360 exclusive only
and i never play FPS on my pc

consoles are for
Some RPGs
FPS
3rdP shooters

I love gaming on my PC. I can use my Saitek Ps 2700 PS3/USB controller which even offers the ability to change the location of the left analog and D-pad to an Xbox controllers positions. For Sony fans you can experience a number of the Xbox's games without having to buy another console.

Since most households have a computer nowadays PC gaming is fairly cheap and a logical choice for most people on a budget. If PC gaming is dying its cause of the lack of support for the developers through pirating.

Something cannot die if it is a billion dollar industry. That's like saying the pizza restaurant across the street is going out of business because there is a KFC restaruant right next to it.

People have been saying PC gaming has been dying for the past ten years but it's simply not true:

Starcraft 2 sold 1.8 million units on day one and that is excluding Korea where the franchise is almost a damn nation sport (if you don't believe me google it, people win hundreds of thousands of dollars in these compos)

PC games sell well despite what NPD tells you, because NPD does not count Steam sales, the PCs biggest platform for buying games

I regularly see 2.5 million to 3 million people logged into steam every day

The Witcher 2 has had just over 250,000 preorders on Steam alone, this does not count retail or Good Old Games service

they are just numbers, just because PC is a small show in retail when you go into gamestop/Gamestation/Game ect.... is because Steam was so successful in converting people from buying boxed copies, less demand means less copies made.

Not only that, but there are TONS of other places on the net to buy games for cheap prices. Sometimes the Developers or Publishers will run a crazy sale on their own site, Impulse is a great place to find deals, and so is CD Key Warehouse. There are some other places, but their names escape me.

I was just generalizing, see NPD never counts digital downloads so the PCs biggest market in terms of pure sales is not counted which is a fatal flaw and makes it look like PC gaming has a non exsistant fan base

Just because PC gaming is "great" doesnt mean the industry itself cant be dying(dying does not mean dead btw).

If PC gamers keep continue to pirate games than yes, the industry is dying.
