I'm a real fan of the PC, but yes, consoles are definitely stealing a lot of hardcore gamers from the PC. When Call of Duty 4 came out, I heard some of our guys sitting around talking about the great game they'd had last night and I'm like, 'Hey guys, what server are you playing on? I'd love to come and join you,' and they said, 'Just send us a friends request,' It was at that point I realized they were all playing it on console. Plus, the sales of the console versions are something like ten times the sales of the PC versions.

:retard:

didn't PC titles make up 14%(don't know if that includes online sales and digital distribution) of the revanue in the gaming industry last year?

wonder where he got the... "consoles sell 10x more" figure from. What do you expect, there are multiple platforms :retard:

show me one console game that has made more money or is more popular than WoW :lol:

Mark Rein is just upset that pc gamers didn't eat up the **** he tried to pass off as a good game called UT3.

He must be joking console gaming scene is DEAD every hardcore gamer play CoD4 on PC. My friend sold his Xbox 360, he was in CoD4 clan and he said that it suck. He is now building new rig and starting playing CoD4 on PC because in my country there is BIG CoD scene a lot of lan partys a lot of gamers. Sorry but CoD4 multi on PC is for me better. More players on servers, a lot of ladders, a lot of lan partys.

Console games selling better but where are those hardcore gamers on Live? sorry I didin't seen them less people bought CoD4 on PC but theres more players online.

He is bit*h boy do waht other do lets buy console don't think what you prefer just do what others do. Epic is retired they want do casual games on consoles and get cash.

There are 3 different consoles. So that means they have to make 3 different verisons of one game. But with pc theres only one. It takes 3 consoles to take 1 pc. hmmm I'll stay with pc.

I understand that it does not have anything important to say or it does not want to answer.

Why do you even ask that question ? I told you that i dont agree with what he said,that i think he is a retard and that HE made that claim not me.Dont make this thread into something it wasnt intended to be,it was intended to show that Mark Rein is a moron who would sell his mother if someone paid enough.If you want to have a PC vs Consoles thread there's other threads you can post in,i will not participate.

well what does he expect... UT3 was the biggest let down of the year... so is unreal engine 3

I wouldn't say that. It took PC games a while to catch up to Gears of War on the 360, as Unreal Engine 3 is a phenomenal engine, but now in 2008, it's simply good, but nothing extraordinary, however, Epic has been at work on Unreal Engine 4 since 2005.

Agreed, all the hype did not equate. Bad graphics and bad gameplay to boot!

Yeah, I know man... it's not like he knows what he's talking about when it comes to gaming as a business! What the heck do these company executives think they know? Obviously we as the consumers know more about the business aspect than some suits!

Well, he and his friends did turn a garage-business into a multi-million dollar company, that now purchases other companies.

Console versions sell more because gaming is getting more and more mainstream and consoles sell better with casual consumers. It's sort of a "no duh" thing.

It doesn't mean PC gaming is dying... we still get ports of almost every worthwhile release, and several good exclusives a year, and I don't think that would be the case if it weren't for PC gaming being a lucrative market.
