Microsoft stole a high-end AMD Radeon GPU right from under PC gamers' nosesMicrosoft stole a high-end AMD Radeon GPU right from under PC gamers' noses
Dr0s4n Avatar
Where are the consumers of the brand? Where are AMD Fans that do not manifest themselves, such as a total boycott of branded products, due to the lack of news and investment in the Computer, CPU and GPU sectors, which made this company what it is

AMD has left a market that has grown (Computer and PC Gaming) to venture into the console market that over time has made businesses go bankrupt.

The gain in the Consoles market is minimal, a market that is stagnated for 7 years without any innovation and change.

The PC and Gaming PC market is different, in a cycle of 6 months and 12 months, new technologies arise, R & D are essential because PCs and PC Gamer has always been synonymous with cutting-edge technology, even because the PC maintains this heated and live market, not only creating the Softwares as Technologies and innovations as Genres, Services like Kickstarter sectors like the Indies Market and so on.

Annually, the Preconfigured PC market can sell in 12 Months, 400 Million new Computers, 400 million in 365 days, where is an AMD? Where are your past partnerships with the OEM industry?

Last year, in 2017, the PC Hardware market (nVidia, Intel and AMD) hit a new record, surpassing $ 30 billion dollars.

It was recently revealed that AMD and nVidia in 3 months for PC Gamer market sell around 30 Million units of CHIPs Graphics!

Meanwhile the archaic consoles market is stagnant, so far from 2013 to 2018 it has not sold more than 100 million units sold (M $ + $ ONY + Nintendo), repeating in 5 years, a market where AMD delivers a PC Technologies as x86-64 at a banana price, with an extremely low gain (AMD's SoC market, which encompasses Xbox and PlayStation in those 5 years did not exceed 500 Million Revenue for AMD) a joke.

I find it funny how they like to use the PC market to save other markets, like Microsoft with Xbox, and AMD recently. Because without access to the technologies and innovations created by the PC over time, this without doubt would be the bottom of the well for this generation of Consoles. Remember Sony with CELL.Reply

Well, I own a Freesync monitor and I sure am not planning on buying a new display for a good few years yet. So, here's one AMD "fanboy" - by screen choice anyway!


With Ryzen deemed a great success though at least we have hope for AMD's future. :)

I agree. Microsoft's only concern is strengthening the Xbox userbase. I think their plan is that if PC players have access to Xbox games and servers (even in just some games), it'll make Sony's servers look like trash.


Well, I don't care how many players they have on either system. I just want to play a game and I want to do it on PC. I'm sick of consoles, I'm sick of bad ports and I'm sick of restrictive DRM. There is no way I'm going back to consoles now, I greatly prefer PC and I'll always recommend others do the same.

You right, all this move is about Xbox, not PC.


Microsoft after Bill Gates shutdown, don't care about PC. The new team, and this since 2000 is only interested in using the PC as a way to keep that Xbox brand alive.


Microsoft need be attentive, since Windows 8 and now 10 (with this complicated and pathetic UI) you main product is becoming less and less relevant, Let's see how long Microsoft will survive in the marketplace, with revenue and profits of the insignificant console market.

Oh, REALLY ?

First step is, on PC Gaming Events, stop say worlds, XBOX, XBOX and XBOX.

Every 10 words that Microsoft talks about PC, 8 are related to Xbox. Do you think we're stupid? Do you think we've erased from memory, phrases like 'PC Gaming is Dead - By Microsoft'

All this Microsoft move is related that this Xbox brand is going to hole, in 4 Years Console has not even sold 30 million. As PC Gaming year after year grows more and more, today alone it surpasses with pleasure the market of Consoles represented by 3 different manufacturers!

Do not be stupid, this proximity has nothing to do with PC Gaming, but rather with Xbox and what steps they are trying to take to save the brand!Reply

This is Microsoft, its strategy is obvious, demean the PC as Platform, so that attention turns to Xbox and Windows Phone! The same as it said a decade ago, that PC Gaming was DEAD. Microsoft supposedly claims to be supporting the PC, with GamePlayAnywere, when in fact its intention is to take a good part of the billions of players who play on the PC to go play also in the dead Xbox One. Xbox One in almost 5 years does not even have a base Of 30 Million Units Sold. Just look, the prebuild PC market in crisis, annually sells 300 million new PCs, it seems a joke compare it to Xbox One in 5 years not sold 30 million units. Microsoft after the departure of Bill Gates, sought at all costs to kill PC Gaming, focused on bringing them to Xbox One, something she failed, but still did not give up doing, CEO of Epic Games warned about this!

Funny, the value of PC Gaming today is $ 35bn, while the Xbox is even worth $ 7bn, so Sony and Microsoft are copying absolutely everything they can from the PC because they know their markets are going to hole!

The most hilarious thing about it, is to see PC Gaming Websites, which should be collaborating with the platform, creating news to inform us about new technologies and games, including daily reviews of hundreds PC games release every month, and after sending them to Metacritic, GameRankings and others, They prefer to dedicate our space to talk about PlayStation and Xbox. Take look on Metacritic, and see that in one month, in the more than 300 Titles that PC received, only 5 or 10 received analysis!

Go there to see if Sony left the DEV talks about PC, NO IT DONT, what do they do ? It imposes on the contract a restriction for anyone of studio talk about PC (giving the impression that they are exclusive games), as we see in the recent statement of Sean Murray of NMS!

Here we do not want to know about Polystation, Shitbox and other consoles, we are here to know, read and inform us about PC, Exclusively on PC!

Yes just watch Cities Skylines, a PC Game coming to Consoles.


But the magic of PC is, while one Studio goes off PC focus, 100 others are born instead!

Forget Cities Skylines. Just look at the difference between Hearts of Iron 3 and 4. The first one was a complete game released for 20 euros which recieived massive patching (for free_ and all expansiosn added a ton of content for 10 euros. Meanwhile 4 was released as bare-bones game, most patches are meant for the dlc and barely fix the vanilla and you get 40 euro expansions which only make superficial changes to how the game is played

There’s no PC release date for Friday the 13th because of console certification holding it backThere’s no PC release date for Friday the 13th because of console certification holding it back

For smaller (non-AAA titles) you get more press coverage if you release on all of your mediums at once. They'd be rolling a dice based on PC sales and reviews. If the game was unsuccessful on PC then console sales would be truly abysmal.


By delaying the PC release they also get more time to try and patch out any remaining bugs (they will be waiting for MS and Sony to get back to them on what did and didn't work). It's better for everyone to have a bit of patience in this situation. Whilst it's upsetting that the game is being delayed due to console's. This is still the best option.

Dr0s4n Avatar

No it's not the best option.


Consoles limit the market, accept it.


Games like No Man's Sky, could have avoided any bad repercussion, if the Developers were free to put this game in Steam EA.


But Sony paid for them not to do this, even banned the Developer himself from talking about the PC version, until the day of the OFFICIAL Launch.

Nothing news here, if you don't know, as again, a Consoles Manufactuer paid for it, paid for this Perm-Exclusive or Timed-Exclusive.

But is not a problem, the real problem is a PC Gaming sites such PCGamesN ignore it, ignore that these Manufacturers such Sony tried all life to kill and ruin a PC Gaming Market.

Especially, these PC Gaming websites, do not talk about PC games like XCOM, Torment, Wasteland be casualized because Consoles.

I'm curious how a guy called yourself as PC Gamer, and write for a PC Gamer Websites even make free advertising for these ridiculous platforms called Consoles.

Most probably these "PC Gaming Websites" working in farvor of Consoles. One of this evidence is these Websites ignore important topics such, a Casualized factor, poor mechanics, poor History of these games above because the Studio decide Release it for Console too!

Lie, the reason is because Sony don't like this idea.

Why would I buy a PS4, if I can play the game with people of PS4 on a PC or Xbox One!

As already said, these 'Console' companies are competitor of the PC Gaming, so stay tuned for possible propaganadas and advertising which manages some kind of benefit to them!

She did not do it willingly, she was obliged to do, since the Sony platform, had not not even 5% of the player base that the PC versions, without the base players of PC, these titles such FFXI of Console never would remain this market, Sony platforms no had niche for this market.


Crossplatform was not a choice aimed at players, but a business strategy, the only way out to make those games stay alive on these platforms, is with the help of the PC itself!

Sony were the first firm to do cross play with PC and forced MS to do it to keep up, but pitting an open system that has people using third party programs to mod and cheat against a group who can't is just forcing the problems of another format on one that doesn't have those problems.
