Only that isnt the case with BF3 now is it? And it hasnt been the case for long, last 3 years or so. Software vendors are also coming back around to the fact that the PC gaming industry is not in fact dead as reported by fan boys. They just need to make good games.Honestly with games being made for consoles and ported to PC, there's really no special reason to buy it on a PC anymore.
Don't get me wrong, I love PC gaming... but there's really no benefit to playing on the PC anymore if they keep making ports.
Look, your console failure time is coming, I predict it in the next year or so. Why? Because we are at the end of the console systems cycle and it takes quite a while for the new crowd of games to be made well for the next console. Gaming resources will shift to the next XBOX, PS3, and it will take time like the last generation for them to catch on. Consoles are fortunately for PC gamers cyclical and rise and fall like clock work. Console fanboys (not saying you are one) arent old enough to know this already and are doomed to repeat it.
Other problems with this port to consoles crap is the limited field of gaming that can be done on the consoles. PC's are more capable platforms as far as flexibility. Consoles gaming tends to be very linear, release an FPS, release an FPS, sprinkle with an RPG, release an FPS, release a driving simulator, redo the driving simulator, release an FPS, sprinkle another RPG, rinse repeat.
I am not a fanboy, just aware of the superior platform for the game I want to play. If I want a driving simulator, I will play Forza 4 (unfortunately I prefer the real thing and race at the track). If I want to rock out with my friends, I fire up Rock Band. If I want to play an FPS, sorry buddy, but PC is where it is at. RTS, sorry PC wins this again with a mouse and keyboard. Dance simulation, well an XBOX with motion sensor surely (not a huge fan either. Each platform has its merit.
Just getting tired of console junkies telling me the console is the best for FPS, it just isnt.
