Why do publishers delay the PC version of their games?Why do publishers delay the PC version of their games?

the irony here is that a delayed PC release means i wait for bargin bin instead of dayone'ing it.


i was going to get ASSCRED 4, now its a month late, so i will wait for it to hit 10 USD.


at least X rebirth is coming out soon :D

I often do that as well. I'm willing to wait a year for all the games I want to be £10 or less.

It's currently me :) I look forward to seeing if there are any performance increases. I hope more developers take advantage of Mantle if there are considerable performance enhancements.

I wouldn't worry, if you messed up so did the rest of the internet.

Cool video, I just hope they can maintain that art style in game itself.

Valve announce SteamOS, a linux-based operating system built specifically for living room machinesValve announce SteamOS, a linux-based operating system built specifically for living room machines

I interpreted it as being able to run a smaller selection of simpler games, i.e. whatever the hardware can run within the Linux library. Which is nice, but not a deal-breaker, and secondary to the streaming.


Incidentally, my wife's reaction to this news first was "you're not taking over the TV on a friday and saturday night" and then "oh, we could play Plants Vs Zombies!"

I think it will all depend on the specs of the computer and which Linux compatible games are released for it.


I imagine the OS itself can run games natively if correctly programmed and stream Windows games.
