    I say boycott time then. If Tim Sweeny cannot remember his roots, it's time for those roots to crack his foundation...

    So can someone here explain to me how boycotting a major player in the PC gaming industry is going to help anyone out?

    Less games sales overall are going to confirm exactly what they're saying, PC gaming IS in a decline, you can blame who or what you want (pirates, developers, consumers, hardware) whatever, the simple fact still remains that there are better profit margins available for developing console games.

    Put yourself in their shoes!

    Picture this, you're a kid who's trying to earn money by mowing lawns, it's Sunday afternoon and you have the choice of two lawns to mow, one is a 10m square without any trees or plants to avoid and the owner will pay you £20 and is very reliable. The other lawn is a 20m square with several intricate plant beds to navigate around, a few big trees in the way and some of the garden is on a 45 degree slope. The owner says he will pay you £10 but he is a drunk and last time you mowed his lawn he didn't pay you.

    What would you chose?

    Whalemeister, i agree with your analogy, but boycotting a console exclusive wont show that PC gaming is in decline....
