    Is it bad that I thought of porn when I read "too exotic"?

    Eh. Doesn't bother me in the slightest - Gimme a PC version any day.

    so are all RTS.

    but don't tell me, EA, that 64bit Vista is also too exotic. come on, do some testing and support it.

    Who would play an RTS on a PS3 anyway. id say they weighted up the cost of porgramming it for the PS3 and they decided it wouldnt be worth it

    Agreed.. EA could be arsed to port the Orange Box to the PS3 (for Valve)... Why not this (for themselves)?

    So RTS aren't for consoles, I guess that means FPS too, right?

    I'd say FPSes work much better on consoles than RTSes...

    But, of course, FPS is best on PC.

    well, some people is used to auto-aiming, while us PC games insist on using a mouse with full control. it depends on the player.
    but real professional gaming is still on PC. Halo 3 isn't as professional as CSS, Halo is just fun.

    Is RA3 not gonna be supported on Vista X64? If so thats a bit of a bugger.
    I agree with "kenco_uk" about "Too exotic = can't be arsed" but tbh most PS3 users who like RA will get it on PC anyway.

    Exactly.. playing console FPSes is for having a bit of fun around a mate's house or with mates online.. Not serious gaming.

    I love the way that all you PC fan boys need to convince your selves that if its not on a PC it isn't serious or professional. Who here makes a living out of being a gamer, a professional gamer. Not many I'm willing to bet. And as for being a serious gamer, surely that's down to your own opinion on your gaming style. I play games on my PC and my 360, and its about having fun with the game. Just because you find it hard to go from a mouse to a controller or vice versa, doesn't mean that certain games don't belong on certain platforms. I remeber playing C&C on the Playstation and thinking how brilliant it was that I could get this without the need for a PC.

    The brilliant thing about this generation of gaming is we are getting closer and closer to everyone having access to the gaming experience they want without as much of a need for multiple platforms.

    tell me then, are you a professional gamer? have you been to any professional gaming events? have you look at the professional gaming footage?

    look at the gaming footage's difference, you'd see PC is much more professional with a lot better timing and training, while likings of Halo are mostly depending on autoaim to get headshots.

    i can asy for fair certainty that if console gaming require pin-point accuracy and no auto-aiming, controllers will never catch up

    Halo 3 definitely has auto aim.. Have you not noticed that when you look at an enemy player/character your cross hair begins to loosely follow them?

    It's not pinpoint "just fire your weapon and you're guaranteed a headshot" accurate auto aiming.. but it is assisted aiming, at the very least.

    I'm not saying that gaming on consoles can't be serious.. But PC pro gaming does seem more so.. and I think the fact that most casual gamers are console gamers (who don't really take an interest in games beyond Fifa, and Halo for example) and wouldn't touch a PC game with a ten-foot barge pole* doesn't exactly help the console gaming scene's image.

    * because of the added complexity of having a system which is designed to perform so many different tasks beyond gaming and entertainment and therefore requires a lot more maintenance and in depth knowledge to get it to work properly.
