On PC Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Eidos Montreal is co-developing the PC edition of Deus Ex: Human Revolution with Nixxes Software, the Netherlands-based developer that has assisted on ports of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, and Tomb Raider Underworld, reports Shacknews. They learned this as part of an interview they will publish soon discussing the upcoming action/RPG prequel with Jean-François Dugas, who explains the Windows edition "was done in-house, but with a partnership." Dugas, who says he is currently playing the game exclusively on the PC, explains the reason for the collaboration: "It was more of a logistical problem more than anything else and having enough people to make sure it's all on the same level, all the time. So, yeah. It was more about manpower and logistics."

Yes, consoles have limitations, but they ain't the cause of everything that is bad in this world.

No but they are more often than not the cause of streamlined games seeking stupid audiences to attempt to replicate the success of the Wii and Halo.

I prefer to look at that as the fault of mainstream gamers and the booming market of gaming over the last 8-10 years. Yes, for the last 10 years those more mainstream gamers chose to play on consoles, but that's because they are easier to use. Over the next 10 years I bet they choose phones and browser services, because those are even easier (and cheaper).

I guess what I am trying to say is don't blame the hardware, blame the market. Also don't blame companies, blame the market. The people I look at with my eyes all squinty for dumbing-down my games are all the gamers who started Morrowind and were like "I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO GO HELP ME!"
