Epic VP: Intel is killing PC gaming! Ars Not really is an article offering an alternate opinion, which is probably not the last editorial that will be written on this topic. During his keynote address Rein also had an episode about episodic gaming, calling it "a broken business." According to the report, Rein's remarks met with some heckling from the audience, accusing him of being a "dinosaur" and "self-serving."

Did Sony just screw over their PS1 user base by introducing the PS2, and soon the PS3?
Each of Sony's two released consoles has gotten at least five years of attention by game developers whereas even a three year old PC which hasn't been substantially upgraded is persona non grata when it comes to newly released PC games.

PC game developers make PC's become obsolete much more quickly as a game platform than game consoles do, and there is really no need for it other than game developers like to play with the latest toys and video card manufacturers love to sell new products so they seed PC game developers with the latest and greatest cards to get them to exploit those features at the expense of the larger market. There is nothing wrong with having some games which require cutting edge hardware, but the problem is that there are not enough games for sale especially in all genres that cater to the wide audience of older PC's. And, that is compounded by the fact that the PC game industry does such an abyssmal job as a whole of keeping its older titles available for sale on store shelves.
