That's only true if gaming PC hardware was only governed by the likes of Dell, HP and Lenovo. In truth it's the likes of Nvidia, Intel, AMD, Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, ASRock and about a million peripheral manufacturers, independent system integrators and etailers who are proving the robust health of the PC hardware market.
The fact those traditional business suppliers are now having to follow suit with Dell and are creating gaming specific brands(Lenovo Legion and HP Omen) shows they're having to embrace the gamers, because that's where the PC money is, instead of just treating them as the brats of the people they're aiming their 'real' office products at.
No-one's implying that declining office use is providing better gaming ability, it's just that gaming and office use have long been separate entities in PC land and it's about time they were recognised as such and not just lumped together under one convenient header.
I like to do both.
XCOM and The Banner Saga are both fantastic on PC. I often wish I could play Fire Emblem on PC, with a real gamepad.
Agreed. But I've had the chance to test a Hololens and my lasting impression (and that of other people who tried) was that it was very cool but not very game-y. It's got massive potential for engineering or other very technically demanding production or construction tasks but entertainment is definitely just a side thing.
It's not just sunglasses replacing a smartphone though - I mean you could, but it would be a horribly wasteful use of the potential. The Hololens is more for a specialized worker who can access a fully detailed 3d blueprint without having to step away from the point of conflict in their production.
You are right... TODAY. HoloLens has a nasty FOV issue. when we solve the issue of horizontal AND vertical peripheral vision, and can extend the AR/VR experience in the the periphery, THEN we will have a game changing technology.
Aah back when Monolith made great games (Blood 2 was my favorite). I actually have friend that propably has NOLFs and SHOGO in his top 10.
NOLFs were solid but I liked SHOGO: MAD more.
