PC Gaming Alliance Interview

The PC Gaming Alliance Interview on bit-gamer.net talks with Intel's Matt Ployhar, the new president of this trade group. They discuss the organization's goals, how much it costs to be a member, DRM, and more. One answer discusses changes planned under the PCGA's new regime: "Several things actually. The biggest is setting a level of expectations. We’re in a marathon, not a sprint, and there are no instant fixes for some of the things we’d like to tackle next. PC gaming is an extremely dynamic ecosystem, and there’s a definite need to update the definitions of what a PC is, and who PC gamers are. We’ll be a lot more transparent moving forward. I believe we’ve been holding our cards a bit too closely, and frankly that doesn’t serve us or the ecosystem very well. It also seems to spool off into all sorts of speculation." Thanks Ant via Slashdot.

"The truth is, we just don't do shit. I don't really know how else to say it. We're made up of a group of developers who genuinely don't give two flying fucks about the PC platform, but who somehow feel that being part of the PC Gaming Alliance makes them look like badass rockstars, which is vitally important to their community of eleven year old fans.

"In the future, we plan to support PC Gaming by not releasing any demos on the platform, by releasing shitty ports, providing no customer support, doing no QA testing whatever, and deleting all posts on our forums where the idiots, I'm sorry, I mean, our valued PC customers complain when our shit doesn't work.

"Of course, this is just for all you old PC Gamers. We're focused on the Real(tm) PC Gamers. So while I'm at it, let me explain to you what a Real(tm) PC Gamer is: You're a Real(tm)PC Gamer when you own an Xbox360, buy all your games on there, and love it when they're shorter than four hours long for 60 bucks.

"It's a great time to be a Real(tm) PC Gamer!"
