MS Gaming Shakeup?

On the heels of a rumor that J Allard is leaving Microsoft, the Wall Street Journal (subscription required) reports on plans for a shake-up at Microsoft's Entertainment & Devices Division "as early as this week." Word is: "Microsoft Corp. is expected to shake up the management of its division focused on videogames, mobile phones and other devices, in the wake of increasingly bruising competition from Apple Inc. and Google Inc. in the market for consumer devices, according to people familiar with the matter." Thanks Kotaku.

Right, like they care about PC gaming anymore NIN. Its all about the mobile and console market, that's where the bucks are. AS for PC gaming it is fucking gone. Just look at the sales numbers of games like Bad Company 2.

100 to 1 Console sales vs. PC> Its over man, game fucking over.

If the next console happens to have a keyboard and mouse, goodbye PC and why they haven't done this earlier is beyond me.

If I recall, a couple of consoles support kb and mouse. It just never took off.

I dont think PC gaming will ever entirely disapear until the need to develop anything is no longer needed to be done on a "Personal Computer". As long as geeks are using high end machines of some kind, to develop all these programs and games for anything.. a PC will always exist, and I would guess many of those users would drive a smaller PC game market. Im just making wild assumptions of the future though. Anything could happen.
