Come over to the consoles, we shall buy your games, it'll be better for all of us.
PC gamers are all freeloaders........10 years ago, I was one so I know.
For that I appologise but i've bought 100s and 100s of xbox and 360 games in that time.Please find my sins repent.
My 450+ game Steam account gives you the big middle finger.
Also, the original Witcher sold well over a million copies on the PC. If you build a good PC game, it will sell big numbers. Piracy is an issue everywhere, there's a reason why Sony is constantly releasing firmware updates for the PS3, Microsoft changed the entire way a disc is pressed for the 360, and Nintendo Wii games don't sell for crap. Piracy is a problem on all platforms.
You say that like all things are equal. It's a far, FAR larger problem on the PC. The guy you're responding to is correct despite your "450 Steam games" and your middle finger. Come to the consoles - it's better for all of us.
The average suburban kiddie looking to steal games will take one look at the process required to play pirated games on the 360 (especially now) and say forget it. With the PC you download a game, generate a key and/or apply a modification to the game, and you're done.
I would counter that if a developer/publisher isn't making enough money on the PC to warrant a PC version of their games, then they should definitely move over to consoles, or, you know, make better games. Putting all PC gamers in the same category as the "average suburban kiddie" is definitely a mistake, given that PC game sales have risen around $5 billion in the last 2-3 years while console sales have flatlined in a lot of cases.
As a PC and console gamer, I encourage you to continue to solely enjoy the platform where publishers will randomly pull server support on games just to sell you a newer version of that game and you get to enjoy hardware that's already obsolete by PC standards when the first console rolls off of the assembly line. I will in the meantime enjoy graphically and performance superior versions of most games on the PC, where I will pay for them until publishers stop taking my money for the PC versions of their games.
