    hmm I didn't read the first interview which these comments came from, but it sounds like these guys might have been misunderstood. I mean I love PC gaming much more than console (except for my love for every single Nintendo creation... mmm snes scope) but I could list a whole load of problems that face PC gaming.

    I think a few people have leaned on him a bit and told that he need to clear those up.

    I get the feeling that he'd say pretty much anything if it looked like there was a chance of 15 minutes of fame (or some cash)...

    Well of course Epic still loves the PC. I remember when they said Gears was going to be exclusive to the 360, and then before you know it, there's a PC release.

    Also what's all this about ruining UT3? Is the game bad?

    Rein's not all wrong though. Lots of people buy laptops instead of desktops now and 90% of those laptop have onboard intel crap when a desktop of similar price would at least come with mid to lower range video cards.

    I love UT3... its just as good as the original.

    Mark probably just saw the EU sales of UT3 and Gears and realized that Epic is making a ton on PC software.

    It is a different soundbite every week with people like this. They should just keep quiet and get on with making games. No one cares whether a developer thinks a platform is dead or not, it just makes them sound bitter when their game flunks.

    ut3: should't have bothered with singleplayer, all ut maps with vehicles suck, characters shrinking and getting wider and what the hell was that menu all about? Oh yeah and gamespy never scores brownie points

    I also love UT3, although in my opinion you can never ever beat great originals. :)

    the most profitable and the best selling games where PC exclusives (world of warcraft, and sims respectively) sims later got ported to consoles, but I think it would be a far cry that you could make WoW sell aswell on consoles. I don't think Pc gaming is going anywhere there's certain genre's FPS, RTS, MMORPG that seem to work better on PC
