FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

E3: PC or rather about the lack of it
Posted on Saturday, June 15 2013 @ 10:55:09 Eastern

This member blog post was promoted to the GameRevolution homepage.


E3 2013 has been very silent for me. There's tons of media, but most of it buzzes past my ears without them catching the important keyword that my ears are fine tuned to receive: "PC" or "Personal Computer". Microsoft, Sony, EA and Ubisoft have all shown their cards and none of those cards have anything for my platform of choice.

I say (or sing) "Hey! What's going on?". Where's the    ... Excuse me, i meant to say P . What the... What I want to say is that where is the Personal Co       ... **** it.

The answer is actually very simple: Sony and Microsoft have both banned the         from E3 for a very simple reason. They want to advertise their new consoles. They probably hope that by announcing all the new entertainment products for their consoles (even if a ton of them are coming to other platforms) they can increase their sales. Likely the pre-orders will flare up for Xbox One and Playstation 4 because gamers want to play their beloved games and they want to be sure they can play them, so it makes sense to get the platform for the games they want as soon as possible.

Probably a couple of months later when E3 buzz has died down, they make announcements for other "less desirable" platforms such as         or Wii U. Or heck, even PS3 and Xbox 360.

Meanwhile, I'm one sad Personal Co-... Personal... Calculator? gamer.
