Oh my god. This whole time I didn't realize this amazing, beautiful creation was being locked down into some idiot console! That is fucked!

Same. Can we take back E3 awards? Sort of like Miss America crowns?

There are quite a few little things that they can do which they steadfastly refuse to do.

They do not have to do anything. For them there is no money in pc gaming.

In console gaming on the other hand they have their greedy hand in everything from hardware to software, royalty fee after every single copy of game sold, annual fee for mp gaming, buying new hardware, or any kind of accesory for your console, controllers, etc.
They make money on all those things, while not a dime on the PC.
It is pretty obvious why they don't give a flying fuck about pcgamers and they would love to see everyone with a PC gaming rig to migrate to the bone instead.
That's where all the hardcore XxXgamerzXxX are anyways.

But when you are putting out more than you are getting back, that isn't making money either. Consoles.

TIL more of the damages that the Target breach triggered.

Most of the time we worry about or CC#'s/Identity being stolen. But I was at a customer that does reoccurring orders, 4 times per year. So they use the cc on file to charge once per quarter. Well since the Target issue, so many people have been reissued new CC #'s, that when time came to charge for the next shipment 20% of all orders were rejected vs 3-4% usually. When they call back to get new CC #'s the say they lose about 50% of their customers at that time as they use it as a get out opportunity. Think of all the business that is lost when you have to do mass CC reissues.

I wouldn’t give the Asians too much credit for those chips. Yes, they make them for us, but all of that tech was built and designed by us. I seriously doubt the Russian Chips are very good or reliable compared to Intel and AMD who have been making them for decades now. The Russians will be playing catch up for a very long time.

They've decided they want to repeat history.

I like to imagine a scenario where Microsoft realizes the error of its ways and rebuilds its PC gaming image and helps lend more credibility to the industry for AAA releases. Plus I'm just a positive person

Is that positive or something else?

One can make a strong argument that keeping GFWL is against supporting PC's.

Awesome. Now it needs updated. 2014 - "We Are Continuing to Support the GFWL Service"

Pisses everyone off, we assumed it was dead. Dev's spend to get another service working with their online game and then the switch-a-roo.

Them darn pirates!!!!!

not surprised. They've never even made a game that I would consider anything more than above average. And it's not like they've ever blown the roof off in selling the decent ones.

$60 million stretch goal. Cloud Imperium buys Crytek.

Crytek's games always seemed like glorified tech demos. The problem is that they could never sell their engine for any decent game, as the market is essentially build your own engine or use Unreal(with a few rare instances of Source or id). Monolith ran into the same problem with Lithtech after FEAR played itself out.

And Unity. There is no denying they have made a massive dent.

Star Citizen will save them.

I am going to believe that these new found insights from UBI are based solely from them reading our comments within yesterdays UBI thread. They have seen the light and have taken them to heart. Yes I'm going to live in that world assuming that is why this happened. Hi Mr. Unicorn, I'll meet you at the rainbow for our picnic today.

And once again it will be killed by Harry Reid and the Democrats in the Senate. If the Republicans take the Senate back later this year Obama will simply veto any future bill. The best part is if they win the presidency in 2016 and retain the House and Senate I guarantee they will do nothing about the NSA.

Really? How very strange? Hrm, not let's do a reality check here. As someone pointed out on the Ars forums....

"There is still a distinction, even in the numbers. Republicans voted 135-94, so 41% were in opposition. Democrats voted 158-29, with just 16% in opposition."

But that can't be right! I mean you just said Democrats were the problem. I mean, it's not like you could be severely deluded about this...and everything else is it? I mean sure you and your fellow Tea Baggers are wrong virtually all the time about almost everything, but what does that really mean anyway.

Yeah no shit, this is about control and one party wants more control, they say less gov't so their corps can take over control. They want deregulation because they don't like being told what to do, things are regulated because they cut corners. No one's an angel, here but there are different degrees of suck going on.

I like the history of the Republican's, they'd be out of business without the South. The only reason the South became republican was because of desegregation, meaning they change from Demo's to Repub's over race and we sit here and beat the shit out of Sterling when we have a whole region that changed voting habits because white didn't want to go to school, sit next to, share buildings with blacks. Sad panda.

"We develop on PC primarily, which is actually unusual. With Assassin’s Creed, we develop on console,"

OMG. I'd jump off a cliff trying to type a whole game with a game-pad. No wonder games get delayed.

True, but isn't their fear that a full 2 days with a sub par game with zero word of mouth will get zero sales? Or maybe 1,000 sales is enough for them to pay for the bandwidth? I dunno. I just don't see many sales from this a 6v6 console game on pc seems like a waste....

2 full days are nice, but I could live with a lot less than that in most games for a preview.

Snowden is being justified. More hero than villain, these actions are proving it and these actions speak louder than words.

I wonder how much pressure they were under to say that? MS/Sony saying... we're losing this console generation and you sell more games on the console than the pc... DO SOMETHING! Perhaps we won't be seeing PC versions of brands we've used to.

Meh, some of us prefer to become actual space combat badasses rather than have it handed to us on a silver platter, but to each their own I guess.

Do we know that? It sounds like all space sims so far have been handed to us on a silver platter.
