2005: PC Gaming's Not Dead YetActually, yes it is.
The most superficial analysis of the PC gaming market [in 2005] - i.e., the NPD summary of retail sales - showed yet another year-on-year tumble. Analysts (both professional and amateur) lined up to declare the platform dead. But there was a more sophisticated analysis to be made, and it pointed to continuing opportunity in the PC space.While I would never question the success of Steam, which is a wonderful tool through which I've made several PC game purchases, this is a terribly uninsightful article. Facts are facts: The PC game market is slowing, and the consoles are kicking ass. Game over, sorry. [ Posted at 9:07 AM | Permalink ]
