hi guys. iv been reading and it seems the trend is for game company's to stop developing for the PC. and focus on the game consoles. i have to thank all you/us gamers for my new computer sitting on my desk. you see in the early days before the Xbox... Sony play station 2. computers is were the die hard gamers roamed.. i can remember going to several kegger/lan partys during my university days. and we all had to have the latest and great pc's. gamers really did push the video card market.. i can remember my vodoo card.. woohoo. anyhow. computers are still expensive for a teen.. so a xbox, or play station 3 makes total sense. but i just wonder as games slowly go away from the pc.. will computers slow down in there speed, gpus. ( yeah they will keep developing, technology will go forward.. but will the prices go up etc.. right now for 1500.00 i built a kick ass computer.. and i thank all gamers for this.. i can remember my first real computer was a P166 32 megs of ram, 8meg video card and 4gig hard drive. was a great gaming machine back in like 1993-95 ( i do not remember what year the 166 chip set came out). expensive tho i paid like 4 grand for that bad boy ). the money was there for the hardware guys needing to buy the latest and great to play that new game.. now every so many years you will need a new console. what do you think is the future of gaming hardware? do you think its dead for the pc? where do you think consoles are gonna go.. ? hell maybe hardware's future is in hand held.. chris.
