    Well, I for one, have never had any console at all. And honestly, I couldn't care less about what's behind the scenes if they weren't always RANTING about below-expected sales and such (as if they didn't have enough money...) - where does all the passion for creating an experience goes to and why, once someone makes a name for themselves?
    Piracy? **** it, try NOT to overprice the freakin' games AND try NOT to make gamers' lives hell with so-called "anti-piracy" methods - I bet anything they'd see such a steep increase in sales they'd get a heart attack.

    to be blunt. Gears of war was buggy pos that struggled to install on any vista based machine. And still to this day isnt 100% correct. The pc port was still better than the orginal on the 360 was ( got the orginal for £8 from a 2nd hand stall)

    Cheeky bugger how dare he suggest that all PC gamers are tarred with the piracy brush just because we spend our hard earned cash on buying modern games. I can honestly say that I have never pirated a game, or a DVD for that matter, and I never will.

    I wish I live in USA so I can sue his a** out his nose.
    Any way, the console gaming will die sooner or later any way :)

    I love laughing at this tactic that Epic (apparently in the PCGA) are taking against the biggest of issues in PC Gaming, piracy. Fear not PC gamers, Epic will deliver us all from the evil of piracy, by not bothering to make games at all. It stands to reason, how can you pirate games for a platform that doesn't exist? Mwahahahaha!

    ID? Where did you get it? They were always talking about piracy yet they were always supportive towards PC gaming. They never resorted to any form of intrusive DRM. And they always release SDK for their games. Who would push evolution of PC gaming(technology) forward if not Johny Carmack & iD? Whining Crytek? .......

    On topic - if Epic were focusing on PC as primary platform they wouldn't have suffered that much(GoW). Console ports are in 90% beggars limited by poor controls, graphics or something else due lack of proper testing or insufficient effort...(opposite to this is Valve's port to PS3 aka "Waste of everyone's time")

    The guy is a PR disaster area. Epic slowly but surely built a successfull company off of the back of PCs and PC gamers, releasing endless iterations of Unreal which are bought by their loyal fan base. Surely they must be aware that without PCs and PC gamers they wouldnt exist, Cliffy B's defining moment would probably be a subroutine in some piece of accountancy software no one has ever heard of. Instead of paying tribute to the platform and people that brought him everything he has and has allowed him to have what im pretty sure is a 'dream job' he basically accuses everyone with a high end PC of being a software pirate and declares repeatedly that the PC is a dead platform. Im sure cliff knows his way around a PC so does he place himself in that demographic of PC literate software pirates or is that just something us lower people who havn't made millions off of an industry we are now trying to shoot down in flames do? The man is a greedy ungratefull weasel that cant resist the bright lights of consoleville with £50 a pop games.

    Where you been, ID have said they will no longer focus on PC, and their gamnes will be console focused with Pc being nehind nintendo as a focus, maybe because ID has not made a good game in over a decade they don't sell well? Another dev whining about PC when the Real issue is there are simp,y better devs and games available. Average games sell well on console (Force unleashed, Assassins Creed), PC gamers have higher standards. Id and Epic are using piracy and the Pc platform as a scapegoat.

    high end pc to play games? for what reason?

    a E7200, a radeon 4850, a p35 board and 2 GB ddr2 dont even come close to high end and are allready more than enough for every game except crysis.

    no pc version due to piracy? what a logic, zero percent piracy on the pc version of gow2, we won, oh wait, we didnt make a single cent either as we didnt sell it.

    and no, I'd never buy a console, the day there are no more pc games i'll simply quit gaming.

    Can you post link to back up this statement?
    So far, I know they're planning Doom4, hiring another developers and that Linux ports of their future games are low priority. Not a single word about consoles...

    Epic will never get a single penny out of my wallet!

    in fact, i will make sure i pirate ALL Unreal Engine games whenever possible, and i'll try to provide my friends around me, pirated Epic related games. i'll also be sure to create lots copy of xbox360 GoW2 from turrents when that's released. console games can be just as easily pirated.

    their behaviour is unacceptable, makes me wonder why they are still in the PC gaming alliance. im going to buy myself a second copy of Solar Empire to support StarDock.

    TBH, I think Epic lost the way when they released ut2004...

    It was a mediocre increment to ut2003, and imo broke a lot of the feel of the game - the movement dynamics changed, so you could no longer do some of the more outrageous jumps.

    I played ut2007 at a lan once, and it just didn't feel the same. :(

    Guess that means that UT3 was the last game I ever bought from epic. I remember when epic was one of my favorite companies. I miss the good ole' days.

    TG: Is id planning any console exclusives?

    JOHN CARMACK: We certainly expect Rage and the Doom project on the PC. We're contractually obligated to have Rage on the PC, and I would be stunned if we did not do Doom 4 for the PC. It would just be wrong. Even if it was a marginal business case, we would still do it because it's the right thing to do.

    ...doesn't sound like they don't care about PC gamming to me.

    Amm, getting console ports is not what we want from ID, they have totally switched focus from Pc first to console first and PC after, whcih means we get the lowest common denominator console ports. Bug difference. They state Console is the focus, there will be a PC version, but it will be a console conversion. Yawn.

    PC gaming is everything. Not consoles you idiots epic workers. and yeah GOW1 was bull **** on pc. I had to restart after I play it. and was pain in the ass to install.

    Download games? lol. I download the game to try it. if I like it I buy it. if not I don't, do they think that money come easy ? ****ing retarded.
