Do you love playing your favorite games on your PC or you prefer playing them on your tablets, phones?
There seem to be fewer games nowadays that you can play using a keyboard and mouse. It’s definitely a big change from a few years ago when there was a complete wall of PC games. People prefer playing games on consoles mentioning that it has better graphics, but of course, HDTV can help! Nowadays, most games are not developed using PC gamers in mind instead consoles are used for a lot of games.
So what about the future of PC gaming?
Of course, PC will always stay as an important gaming platform. Despite the fact that newer consoles are originating the limits of technology and obscuring the difference between PCs and consoles, the personal computer still allows gamers a chance to try something new. Obviously, the PC game is not seen dying, but it is taking a back seat to consoles, particularly with games delivering first to the consoles, probably to sell hardware. Now a long time PC developer is focused on console game development.
The past two-three years have had a cellular boom. During this time, mobile devices and their performance have grown exponentially faster. One of the causes for the decrease in PC gaming is the cost of the PC. At the price of $350 and $400 the consoles are far cheaper than a PC and they’ve got loads of good stuff under the hood. People think that they’re not going to be able to play more comfortably with less work associated with a laptop or PC.
But PC gaming won’t be dying in the foreseeable future unless something else supersedes it. It’s much like this supposed post-PC era we are in killing personal computing. Sure, people are buying computers less frequently, but not because of consoles or mobiles and tablets, but because people just don’t need to update to a newer computer as often as they used to. There are more people, including a hardcore gamer or a casual gamer who understand that their PC is a better gaming platform.
And Remember, that is said and done that the next generation consoles are PC’s, they’re just running different software, and the hardware is locked down tighter.
