In a recent episode of Pach Attack on Gametrailers, Michael Pachter had some harsh words to say about PC gaming.
One fan asked him why Red Dead Redemption wasn’t released on PC. He said that publishers have abandoned PC gaming for console-games because of piracy and that’s one reason why the game hasn’t come on the platform.
“Publishers have abandoned PC as a platform for most console-games because of piracy,” he said.
I personally feel this is a very harsh thing to say, because the platform is far from dead and the market demographics have just changed. There’s money to be made to be platform if handled properly.
We mostly see most third party games hitting the PC platform nowadays, and even Max Payne 3 was a great port on PC. It’s mostly some Japanese games like Dragon’s Dogma that haven’t been released on the system, but that could change.
