PCs Projected to Outpace Consoles in Revenue Next Year (INFOGRAPHIC)

Man I love infographics. Especially those with lots of cool information. Like this one, packed full of analysis of the video game industry, divided into the only two camps that matter: PC and console. And according to this data and it’s beautiful representation, PC is now winning.

It wasn’t so long ago that the media and developers were decrying the death of the PC medium. As you might guess, this infographic, from ExtremeTech, tells a different story. Click it for a bigger version.

Good! Now think about all the pirates out there…If it didnt exist, PC gaming would have never left the top since the 386 days. If you dont know what a 286 or 386 is, you were never a hardcore pc gamer! :)

My Commadore64′s hardcore gamer cred scoffs at your 386.

pc gaming Revenue is up and will continue to grow because of mobile and social gaming.

Social gaming on facebook is and could very well be the savior of pc gaming, all those teenage girls playing those hard games on facebook, you pc gamers must be soooo proud ;)

8 hours on a PC, of course don’t a majority of people spend 8 hours on a pc 5 days a week for work ?

Processing power doesn’t mean anything these days, PS3 still can handle any game that the devs through at it and still they haven’t really pushed the limits.

How come no stats on how reliable a pc is?

@Brice: Pirates aren’t gamers. They’re leeches, who try to suck the life out of PC gaming.

@Josh: Your an idiot,id software had to downgrade RAGE,s texture resolution for consoles including the PS3, then you bring up reliability,pfft consoles these days are unrealiable,for the 360 you got the red ring of death,for the PS3 there,s security issues such as what happened with PSN. Which brings to another point,multiplayer gaming. Console gamers dont have much control of it,eg:If Sony decides to shutdown PSN thats it,you cant do anything about it,with the 360 you have to pay to play multiplayer which is FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE on the PC.

What do you know about pressing the turbo button on your PC tower?

Oh yea, I used to press that to go from 11mhz to 33mhz. Step back!


Reliability is the last thing you should be talking about when defending consoles. Unless you’re talking about a Wii.
