News Comments > PC Player Dominance Killed Cross-Platform Gaming?
9. Re: PC Player Dominance Killed Cross-Platform Gaming? Jul 22, 2010, 12:48 maddog
 
I predict the next Microsoft console will include some sort of wireless keyboard and mouse.

The more I see the development of the XBOX, the more I see MS wanting a single "device" future.

A device that could be both a console and a computer. We are already seeing net based content coming to the 360. It's only a matter of time before we get email, an app store etc etc.

People love the seemingly simplistic nature of a console and want that in a PC. Imagine a box that could connect to your TV for games, movies and the same box (albeit a second box), connected to a PC LCD screen for email, photo\video editing, email ,web etc.

I wouldn't put it past MS that the next console from Redmond runs a stub of the Windows 8 OS.

Cutter,

You are such a jack a$$. I've been on board with the system since I signed up months back and was given the free game. Used my coupon code for Just Cause 2 and it's been great. Speed is the same as it is playing on my local machine. Not thrilled about the fuzzy graphics but it's still early.

My connection is okay. Basic cable service from Cox here in San Diego. Nice service but as others stated, the pricing model will be tough to work through.

I'd love to see a flat monthly fee for all the games.

I think his "witty counter attack" was right on. Sadly, your over-generalization of PC gamers is pretty far off the mark.

I've been a PC gamer since Kings Quest and I really don't care to hack my game files in order to play the game. Regardless of whether or not I have the skills to do so.

The other PC gamers in my family will also not be tackling this "Easy" fix.

Another sad day for PC gaming. Never thought I'd see the day when a UT3 game did not have bots, I digress.

Anyways, no dedicated server or LAN play. Must be logged in with an online account to play or host a MP game. Fail, for me at least. Meh, at least it was only 39 and not 59.

Is Valve the only one who can get PC MP right?

@ Verno,

Can you confirm or deny AI bots in multiplayer? I'd love to be able to take on some bots with a couple buddies. With it being UT3, I am hoping for bots.

Thanks,

MD

The time is 8am pac time, will unlock from Steam in 1 hour. Looks like I'll have to take a sick day.

Right. I see more and more games coming out for consoles and not PC's and this really makes me sad being a lifetime PC gamer since the days of Zork.

If this is a service that will bring games to me that would have otherwise been on console only (killzone, Gears of Wars, Halo etc etc) and I can play with a keyboard\mouse , then great!!

Yup, posted the same info over at VE3d. The kids wanted feedback so I left it. Sorry. Going back to playing my free Just Cause 2.

I am a pre-registered user. Downloaded and installed the client, no problem, choose my free game, Just Cause 2, applied my coupon code. Free game!

Game started playing in under 10 seconds. AWESOME.

Looks fine for me on my 23 inch Samsung. JC2 ran without issues or lag.

I am in San Diego CA running standard Cox cable internet.

Sorry to you who think the service is a joke. For me, I like being able to run a game without worrying about drivers, CPU speed, Windows version etc etc.

I find the merging of consoles and PCs to be a welcome one.

The 1950's sounding robot for the commander was driving me crazy. Did anyone else have the enemy targets run to the ocean, jump in then try to swim to the island? Bizarre.

Is this a better game on the whole versus their Wings over Europe:Cold War turned Hot?

I can't tell from the website but do either product contain a quick mission generator? That's the one thing that keeps pulling me into Janes Fighters Anthology is the amazingly simple quick mission generator.

Thank you gentlemen.

Can't wait for this. I loved High Seas Trader back in the 90's and this looks like a similar concept. I want trading, pirates and naval combat without all the city building and management.

Hope it gets good reviews.

Hope they can do PC games as well. I'd love to pick up some older titles and know that the money is going to a good cause and not GameStop.

Loving the AIX mod as well. Check it out here to play BF2 the way it should have been from the start. The enhanced bot AI is amazing.

Similar to what Mechanik (sorry for spelling) outlined below, great summary btw, I wish ammo was hard to come by. I don't like that the pistol has unlimited ammo. I wish that ammo was in boxes and such and hidden around the map. There are lots of little areas to explore, closets, rooms, bathrooms etc that they could hide ammo in and make it worthwhile to explore more.

I wish there melee weapons like baseball bats, crowbars and even the occasional chainsaw. Would make it nice to balance out the loss of ammo for one of your weapons.

Really enjoying the demo. Everyone is hovering around my PC at work as I blast zombies. Fast pace and furious fun. Normal level seems fairly easy.

No crashes at all but I have only played SP. Looking forward to some coop LAN action.

Hmm, not really seeing that. I dumped BF2 for QW and love every minute of it.

It's even better when a buddy and I want to play some LAN coop against some bots.

Nice to hear the team is working on a patch and actively working with Nvidia to increase performance.

I wish we could get COOP with this patch or perhaps MP bots but I realize that is moot by now.

All in all, I have been very happy with Crytek and this release. Too bad I can't say the same about Epic and their seemingly disastrous Gears of War release.

This is what hellgate should have been like. Fast moving, sorta like Diablo, sorta like a FPS. Fast and furious.
