@GamerKillance said in pc beta?:
That isn't delusion. You're making a claim consoles are dying and the sales show otherwise. I never once denied that PC gaming wasn't on the rise, but consoles still outsell them due to costs alone. Even the link you posted shows no numbers to back up its claim.
I find it fascinating you used a very biased blog rather than sales numbers like I did. Is there a reason you arent posting the outright numbers for PC?
do you even know how a pc works? consoles CANT outsell them. you would have to count every pc sold + every gpu sold in a given year and compare those numbers to console sales IN THE SAME YEAR to get even close to relevant, but the truth is some people are gaming on pc that havent bought any new hardware in several years.
it doesnt matter what source i use you are going to be the console fanboy and call it biased anyways.
just like nintendo fanboys pretend the switch is a valid "console". its not, its grossly underpowered as a console and its real competition is mobile, which means its getting absolutely destroyed by android and ios.
RIGHT NOW i can play ALL xbox exclusives on my pc and alot of playstation exclusives on my pc (gamepass+ playstation now) god of war, halo, persona, crapdown 3, horizon zero dawn.. whatever. SO the logic that "a console is cheaper than a pc" has officially flown out the window because now you have to compare the price of a pc to the cost of BOTH consoles. it doesnt end there though, you also have to replace controllers, charging stations, headsets, etc. with the new console.. meanwhile i can use ANY controller i want on pc, even the 20+ year old ones. pc also has things like ea access premier, uplay+, and humble monthly.. i mean when we arent paying atleast 20% less for games at launch anyways.
so why own a console? its not like you cant connect a pc to a tv, the games we are paying less for are of MUCH higher quality than their console counterparts (and we can use mods), and we have backwards compatibility dating back to the 70s!
why own a console? ignorance.
mobile is eating away at consoles, it doesnt eat away at pc though.
