Mark Rein Knocks Intel, Episodes

Epic's Mark Rein Intel is killing PC Gaming on Joystiq reflects the opinion the Epic VP expressed to the Develop Conference in Brighton that moves by Intel, in particular the promotion of integrated graphics on the motherboard, are hurting PC gaming. 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."

Some of Marc's statements in the past have been off the wall, but he is right about episodic content. Valve can get away with that crap because of its enormous fan sycophant base, but other developers, hell no.

Isn't it a little too early to be knocking episodic content? Only HL2 Ep. 1 and Sin: Emergence have been released as episodes, most buyers seem happy with at least HL2: ep.1.

As for Intel killing gaming... maybe. But I think its more because of their over-priced/under-performing (compared to AMD) CPUs.

Funny that a company who's main product is UT2k3/UT2k4/UT2k7 is knocking episodic content...
Anyone who thinks that UT, UT2003, UT2004, and UT2007 are "episodic content" is an imbecile. Read Marc's entire statement, and you will see to what type of games he is referring.

Exactly...

Mark, I think you're right. I'll skip UT2007 just for you.
