PCGA: PC Gaming Resurgence

PC Retail Industry hears from the PC Gaming Alliance on the topic of PC gaming, who say the platform is undergoing a resurgence (thanks MCV). Here's word:

“The spotlight has absolutely shifted back to PC gaming,” said Matt Ployhar, PCGA president and Intel graphics planner. “I don’t believe this phenomenon is going to slow down. A good portion of the companies that are flush with cash right now are coming from abroad, which largely ties in with my postulation about globalization spilling over into the PC gaming ecosystem.”

“Investment dollars are also shifting back largely in favour of PC gaming for a variety of reasons. Most of this is tied to the profitability margins largely favouring PC gaming for the game developers themselves. For example, ‘free to play’ and micro transactions, practically no secondary sales market, and the shift to digital distribution to name just a few.”

Just as long as the Soviet Bloc developers keep putting out awesome shit, I don't care. Companies like Epic, Zenimax/id, etc put out meh PC games these days.

As far as resurgence, PCs completely outclass consoles in hardware capabilities currently. The gaming devs I know like to stay on the cutting edge, and that cutting edge is currently on the PC, particularly if the dev values freedom and (as mentioned) flexible ways to get customers.
