I guess some companies would rather cater to the console idiots and lose money for the first few years. Sounds like a great business model to me...
Which is why their profits are razor thin right LOL! Or is someone making up their financial reports?

If you don't like the way they do business then start your own company.

Not always actually. If you look at Civ5, the textures look more detailed in DX10 mode.

I think these two mother ****ers have done more harm than good to PC gaming. People wonder why console games are winning the war and the hardcore PC gaming crowd is losing it.
I didn't realise there was a war !

If that is the case then who is the war between ? I do agree though that the PC platform does need more premium quality exclusives. However, I also believe the only time for me to upgrade from my GTX285 is maybe when the next gen consoles are out...at least then the ports will look somewhat decent rather than the last gen crap we get now.

No, it just means we can play the console ports in very high fidelity. PC wins unless it's an extremely bad port.

In most cases, the PC gets a higher score than the console version anyway, plus we have modders to make the game better.

No...I am a pissed of PC gamer that has seen the truth and what these two mother ****ers have done to PC gaming. It's becoming a joke! They keep burlbing how "uber" direct x11 is but where are the games?Where is all that billions of dollars they make going? Let me guess? Most of the crap is probably going to an overpaid CEO!

The platform war has been on for ages! It's why consoles are more popular than PCs!

Consoles are more popular because they're more an all round entertainment item for the household. That's why Microsoft are investing in it and Microsoft cannot grow in the PC market.

For the love of God, STFU you worthless troll. We don't care if you're pissed off about your store bought computer that can't run anything.

Next time tell Mommy to let someone who knows what they're doing build one for you.
