Idd, for the love of god put a sock in it mailman, it's getting VERY old. I play PC games every day but i also own both PS3 and xbox 360. I use the pc a lot more but there's TONS of good games for all 3 formats so why deprive yourself of some fun ?

No one wants them, in fact there is a such a surplus of used ones at places like Gamestop due to people trading them in for 360's for lack of trust in Sony after this.

I'd love to see them go by the wayside - I don't think it will happen immediately but with console devs dying to get some DX11 hardware, the only way to do that is with the PC. Or they can wait 3-4 more years for the consoles to catch up ... and that's if they can offer a 100% secured network to do that.

PC fanboys are worse than any console fanboy heres your proof. Yeah it would be so great for the gaming market if the only people who play games had to have $2000 PCs, that would just be great!!!!111oneone. You know what would happen then rocket scientist? The gaming industry would crash down to nothing again, and you would have about one tenth or less of the games you have now, and they'd be one tenth the quality. Because PCs never get hacked, right? Lets measure the number of hacked identities on PCs vs consoles... Well, until the PSN thing, they were all on PC, so I'm guessing PC has been more hacked by about 10 to 1. People like you are why PC gaming sucks, you want it all to be exclusive to your high end once a year updated PC that 90% of the market cant afford, if developers felt the way you did, there would be only console games, because they wouldn't bother developing for PC because the "best platform" profit wise is a simple console. Good thing developers arent as dumb and arrogant as you.

Because playing console games with a controller is mostly sh*t, not matter how good you think you are at FPS games.

And also, who wants to play consoles on a non HD TV now days ?

Listen dude. The gaming industry made lots of money on the PC platform, other wise it wouldn't invest so much in consoles now. Also, stop saying "people like you", it's like your blaming PC fans and think they actually have a hand in this sort of thing. Game developers making money doesn't give us better ports of games, if It did, Counter Strike and Half-life 2 wouldn't be the best and most played games still.

Now STFU and go play your expensive console games sucker.

lmao. You guys are so funny... I didn't write the article nor was I the guy answering the questions. Hooker??? Sounds like you guys need to quit getting off on your R_Rod boxes already...

I hate consoles because I hate the garbage PC ports, I want PC developed games back that work out of the box. Its time for PC gaming to make a comeback and exactly what Chris Taylor is saying in the article.

$2000 for a gaming PC - you are WAAAAAY outta touch with reality.. thus the need to buy a $500 console. Good for you... it fits.

Vin and Doc are obviously console gamers, they wouldn't defend it like that if they weren't. Whats the matter did we hurt your feelings??? Back to your basements boys!!

I hate (bad) console ports too, but PC games that I liked were just as rare before consoles exploded on the scene as after.
