Fuck that PC gaming doesn't make bucks jab too. PC constantly has people who are upgrading their systems and buying games they were interested in earlier, but didn't get a chance to play. PC games sell steady (all be it lower numbers) for a lot longer than consoles. This alone makes it a smart move for Capcom.
I'm glad to. It means we PC people get to have the best of both worlds with the addition of community created mods and such. That means we win twice while consolers lose.

Very true. Console gamers buy whats new on the shelves and forget older titles. PC gamers buy stuff over time. Its a proven fact in marketting research.

Heres a cool statistic,, 2007 Wii sold around 31mill games. PC sold 35mill. Wii is a success yet PC gaming is dead.

oh serious?
i guess PC gaming is alive and well - regardless of the piracy...

but i guess when it comes to consoles, there are 3 choices, so "console sales" vs "pc sales" is abit unfair...

Its massively unfair. But noone actually realises they're pitting 3 consoles against 1 pc. All seperate markets, doesnt matter if they are labelled as consoles. A nintendo whore isnt going to go out and buy an xbox.
