Blizzard's PC Stance

Computer and Video Games quotes Blizzard's Mike Ryder on the company's PC commitment. "Its [sic] certainly not written off by us. PC development has a number of unique challenges that console developers don't face, but Blizzard is one of the few companies that is there making great PC games," he said, admitting that console development would be easier. "We've spent a lot of time in development focussing on scalablity, on new PC hardware and old. If you were just designing for a console it would be a much easier task." Thanks joao.

And seeing the Playstation 3 only has 256mb of ram and people can still produce games like Crysis 2, kinda nullifies your argument now doesnt it?

Thats HALF the ram and MORE storage than we are touting around...

and I am sure nearly every GOOD coder will disagree with you.. As I said it has NOTHING to do with Tech Demos, I gave that as an EXAMPLE of what can be done with limitations. There are awesome games one the Nintendo DS, Awesome games on the iPod Touch.. ALL have less storage and limits than we are touting... Again you are missing the point, and on why I called you on those two points you gave on your list. They have NOTHING to do with better games or game development.

The other 3 points you came up with, RIGHT on the money.. I just dont agree with the 2 we are debating about.
