It makes sense to me that it's not out yet. It's still selling huge numbers on consoles. PC games tend to be cheaper, go on sale faster and get pirated more. The longer they hold out the more console versions they will sell at full price. Once sales level off we'll see a PC or possibly new gen port.

I think the biggest problem is how young the medium is and our familiarity with the other mediums. Anyone who plays video games today lived their entire life in a world where television and movies have been the most pervasive and dominant medium of entertainment. Audio logs and written texts are also more common forms of storytelling in games than actual interaction is. As we start to figure out the strengths of the medium we will be able to get more meaningful stories from games.
It's going to take a lot of trying new things and failing at them to figure out what works and what doesn't. An obvious example of a failure here is Homefront's press X to hide in mass grave moment. It was trying to be an interactive moment with meaningful actions, but it missed the point completely.
@believer258: I was talking about the original Xbox, which is why I said Xbox. The 360 was ATI.
It's probably because of a series of good business decisions and diversification. Besides PC graphics cards they also did graphics for the Xbox and PS3, they own the PhysX software which is used in a lot of games, they make cell phone processors which are used in most android devices and they're starting to move into the automotive computer sector. If you've got a product in every Audi, Android phone and Playstation 3 then you've got a lot of customers.
I have spent over $150 on games before and I will likely do it again in the future. I say spend as much money as you feel the game is worth.
Just because the people behind this have produced some less than quality works in the past doesn't mean their future stuff won't be quality. The folks at devolver digital were also the folks behind Gamecock after all. They made such hits as Hail to the Chimp, Velvet Assassin and Section 8.
Pretty sure it was GTAV sine I haven't played anything brand new since then. It's hard to judge though. On any given night I could go to bed at anytime between 11 and 3, depending on how far west my sports teams are travelling or how much progress I'm making in a game. Nothing has been 4 or 5 AM gaming since GTAV though.
I've been like that for probably three years. Sometimes a game will come along and I'll suddenly lose three days to it, but most of the time it's "I've got all these games and no interest in playing any of them."
I was thinking about this recently as well. It seems impractical to have every console hooked up to the TV. You can have them all out and ready to be hooked up but having them all plugged in would require a lot of power outlets and TV connections. So you need to set up the room in such a way that it isn't a hassle to get to the back of the TV. Of course the TV also needs to be positioned so that glare isn't an issue. You need to account for both windows and the lighting in the room.
I'd also say make sure the internet situation is under control. Either have some ethernet outlets or make sure you are within range of wifi.
Depending on how big your physical collection is and how much larger it's going to get you could look into getting some custom shelving built.
@pinner458: Offsides in soccer is actually pretty simple to explain and a common occurrence over the course of a game, while the infield fly rule is a bit complex and pertains to a very specific situation that doesn't always happen. It's more comparable to en passant in chess, or a rouge in Canadian football.
