[justify]Alright, Game Companies. It's time to get your heads OUT OF YOUR ASSES. You seeing these console announcements? You notice an upsetting trend? Yeah. No backwards compatibility. And we're not just talking about reading discs anymore either. We're talking about digital releases. All those games you've been pushing out on XBLA and PSN? Completely USELESS next gen. Wii-U manages to be an exception only because they included a Wii emulator.[/justify]

[justify]So tell me something, Game Companies. How much longer are you going to hold out on PC releases? Yes, you're slowly warming up to the subject, announcing PC versions of games like Metal Gear Revengeance and Mortal Kombat... but there's still quite a ways to go. Don't you find it upsetting that within 2 years, a game like Battleblock Theater will cease to sell while Peter Molyneux continues to profit from MAGIC CARPET??



This isn't about touting around PC's superiority. It's simply about pointing out the PC's advantage over consoles. It is a FACT that PC games will see a longer life cycle than console equivalents. Plus, the PC community mods games for additional content that stretches that life cycle even further. People STILL get Just Cause 2 just for the multiplayer hack. People go back into Sonic Generations just to play the modded daytime levels from Sonic Unleashed. And don't get me started Day Z, a game that requires $30 worth of games just to play. Also note how NONE of these things work well unless you own a full version of the game.



So please. Let's stop this stupidity. It's only going to happen AGAIN when we get to the Xbox One 2 and PS5. Just release PC versions of your games alongside the console releases. It'll benefit you in the long run.[/justify]
