Voodoo PC Founder Says Gaming PC’s Doomed
http://www.rahulsood.com/2008/12/gaming-pc-as-we-know-it-is-doomed.html I have publicly called on AMD and Nvidia to bring more value to their offerings, because quite frankly I cannot justify buying three $500 video cards just to play a game.
Here?s the bottom line: The glory days of wicked-stupid hardware requirements are pretty much gone. Game developers are in the business of making money, and thus want to distribute their games to the widest possible audience. This doesn?t mean current games don?t scale, because we all know that games on the PC scale well if designed properly. You can buy a game that delivers a half-decent experience on a mainstream computer and a killer experience on a higher-end PC. The question is, just how high-end does one need to go in terms of hardware before he blows his brains out?
