    Theres this new guy at work, and he claims hes a "hardcore PC gamer for life" :rofl: He absolutely hates consoles, and the other day he told me how console gaming is bombing right now because of the economy recession and that there most likely wont be anymore home consoles after this gen. :ugh: And that games prices are going up to the $100+ range (COD:MW2 limited $130?):ugh: and the current home consoles will go up $100 by the end of the year.

    :wtf:

    Isnt it PC gaming thats on the downhill?

    PC gaming isnt going anywhere and neither are consoles. Game prices will go up as high as the publishers think they can push them.

    pc gaming is in rapid decline (barring WoW), everything going to console. serious talk among blizz big wigs to port all their games (including WoW) to console - that will be the death knell for pc gaming.

    They are dieing and I will tell you why. They are simply becoming one and the same. Pcs are getting more user friendly like consoles and consoles are becoming more like pcs.

    Neither are dying at all, but you could probably say that developers are being more "careful" about what they put out and are less willing to take risks about innovation, in turn just putting out stuff they know will sell. Microsoft is probably the worst offender of this and jacks everyones shit.

    And some genres are just better on console or PC and I think this is starting to become universally accepted.

    pc game sales in 2008 were 780 million. down 14% from 2007. the trend will continue that way, with a steady decline.

    console game sales in 2008 were 10.96 BILLION. up 26% over 2007.


    yeah, consoles are dying and pc is reigning :hsugh:

    Fanboys are fanboys, no matter what console they defend.... including PC. And fanboyism is always illogical/retarded.

    project natal could be used for shouting out magic spells to get you into character

    although that could get old quickly
