    the consols like to have exclusive games and thus tend to write contracts to prevent other versions being released.

    thats one of the reasons

    It is a bit of a shame some more of the "other" genre games (you know, other than FPS/RTS/RPG) can't also see release on the PC, but whenever I get a press release sent across about a new game coming out, I'm actually a little surprised about how many are aimed for a PC release.

    It's not a huge amount, but when I'm posting news on TTGamer about a new game coming out, I'm often pleasently surprised about how many times I find myself typing "coming for release on PS3, 360 and PC".

    In any case, you have to consider that for any game that will struggle to sell well on a console, it will only struggle a lot more on PC in most cases. When you combine this with what Kheldar said about exclusivity (which literally sells consoles), then I think that explains a lot of the reason why.

    Emulator's never work well and they never allow you to properly play a game. Besides, consoles do run games better for the most part. Us PC gamers need our heads examined for trying to keep these things powerful enough to play the latest releases on.......

    Agree with that! I have an NES emulator (I got an NES but I left it behind) and some games hang. I got also a PSX emulator (ePSXe) but it sucked so I purchased a Sony PSone. (I like Spyro!)

    On Best Buy, I tried playing a PS3 and it rocks, totally. And $1800+ for a PS3 and a 50" plasma vs. $10000 for The Slayer? No contest there.

    OMG there are too many good games coming to the PC...

    Oh and GTA4 won't be out till 2nd quarter 2008.

    The Settlers 6 and Crysis are the two I'm looking forward to most of all. Playing Bioshock right now and it's fantastic. I'll be picking up MOH: Airborne soon as well as the demo was ****. There are a butt load of games coming out by Christmas...too many for me to deal with really....oh and the new GuildWars too...too many new games and soooo little time to play..

    Yeah the PC released ahead are insane - Crysis, HL2 EP2, Sup Comm expansion, as well as a lot of other smaller but equally as good looking releases not to mention just out titles like BioShock. Pretty good year for the PC really, and we haven't even moved over to DX10 fully yet.

    Hmm... Bioshock...

    I'll be staying far away from that game (PC version, of course) until they release a version that does not contain a root kit.

    I just foolishly made the jump to DX10 and hope I don't get too disappointed. As for games that do intrusive things to my PC, I use a separate OS install for gaming anyways so that I can keep it lean and mean.
