They are all focused on casual gamers right now thats the industry focus. Plus Sweeney comes from the camp of making tings easier to develop which can be true if you only have to build for specific consoles.
My problem is that you just cannot get the networking capabilities out of console games that you can out of PC games. Secondly, I want to use a fricking keyboard and mouse. How hard is it to build in that support on console games?. Lastly, dedicated servers and mods.
PC gaming is where most game enthusiasts reside. Thats a market that is totally being ignored by many. Fortunately some of the best developers support PC gaming (love you Valve). And I think the caliber of the games and their gameplay show it. Which is more popular Unreal 3 or a little extra feature of a game called Team Fortress?
Unreal 3 was an ultimate example of console FPS mindset. Lots of eye candy, millions of machines and guns crappy gameplay and UI. This comment was edited on Mar 10, 21:39.
