PC gamers are an odd lot. They prefer playing on a computer to playing on a TV, and that makes little sense to me.
Computer: Work and porno.
TV: Entertainment and porno.
That formula works for me, and apparently EA agrees, as in a recent blog post, EA Sports president Peter Moore dropped the bomb that Madden ’09, the latest in the very popular series of football video games, would be console only.
He says it’s business and business only, and we believe him, the PC games marketplace is shrinking while the console market is growing rapidly.
Will games on PCs ever go totally away? Nope, but you can bet that game makers will bet the vast majority of their fortunes on the living room and not the home office.
