Strange Quote of the Day

Talking Kinect With Kudo on GameInformer.com includes a wacky quote, as pointed out by Computer and Video Games, as Kinect creator Kudo Tsunoda says: "hardly anyone plays first person shooters on the PC anymore." Here's more of the quote:

Halo did an awesome job of building a first-person shooter exclusively for the console, and now hardly anyone plays first person shooters on the PC anymore. Itís all about the console. And I feel it is the same with Kinect stuff. If you are constantly trying to take something that is made for a controller and port it over to Kinect, itís not going to be a good experience because it is made for a controller. If you take the time to build it for Kinect from the ground up, however, you can make something that is a very new experience, but lots of times even more fun than it was before.

Truth be told, there are way more people playing FPS games on consoles these days. Well, new ones. Factor in CS and maybe that's not true.

Percentage wise, too, way more people play FPS on consoles relative to other console games. Of course, that's because the vast majority of PC gamers play casual games, but if you factor those people in the installed user base of PC gamers is infinitely larger than consoles. Which is why you don't count those people.


Bottom line, though, more people are playing FPS games on consoles. But FPS games remain the most profitable non-casual games on PCs for a reason - they still sell pretty damn well.

Although, thinking back, how many have we had in 2010? I think Metro 2033 is the only one that led on the PC.

Thank you for illustrating exactly how people come up with these jackass ideas: They make them up. Without one shred of evidence you ASSume your train of thought is correct.
