John Carmack says PC has lost its glory

Posted on Sunday, October 16 2011 @ 22:30:34 CEST by

id Software's John Carmack stated in an interview that he no longer sees the PC as the leading platform for games. The statement reflects the poor quality of the PC version of Rage, which is basically a port with better graphics.
Even though personal computers forever changed the video game industry back in the early nineties, they are not the leading platforms for games anymore, according to John Carmack, a legendary game designer whose Doom and Wolfenstein revolutionized the industry. Game consoles are much more popular devices used for video gaming and therefore id Software's latest Rage title was tailored for Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3.

"We do not see the PC as the leading platform for games. That statement will enrage some people, but it is hard to characterize it otherwise; both console [Rage] versions will have larger audiences than the PC version," said John Carmack, the lead programmer at id Software, in an interview with IndustryGamers web-site.
