Is PC Gaming Dead?
Many people thought PC gaming was on the way out and would be dead soon. Apparently, that’s not the case at all. The hay day of PC gaming may be in the past as far as sales go, but it’s still doing just fine. According to 1Up, PC games made up 14% of 2007 game sales. Only one PC game cracked a million in sales during 2007, but I don’t think we should worry too much about this format going away anytime soon.
Check out the 1Up article below that explores the sales figures and discusses how piracy may have something to do with the lower sales for some PC games. Personally, I believe that PC gaming will be around and going strong as long as they have titles like World of Warcraft. I doubt we’ll ever see PC gaming with sales on the same levels as consoles ever again, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for them.
