Does anyone remember when couple of months ago Phil Spencer promised increased focus on PC Gaming? http://www.gamespot.com/articles/microsoft-we-need-to-do-more-for-pc-gaming/1100-6420024/ So do you think this is a good or bad thing from perspective of an XB1 owner if more XB1 exclusives make their way to PC ? Ryse and Dead Rising 3 are already in and Halo MCC coming to PC is a strong possibility if Phil's words are to be believed.This is all very good for a PC owner who does not own Xbox but what do XB1 owners have feel about this ? Do you feel that this makes owning XB1 pointless and should just sell off the XB1 and go PC/PS4 ?
[conspiracy mode activated] MS did terribly with their focus on the X1's games (their core audience). Lack of games at the reveal, it was all TVTVTV, Kinect bundle and then backtracking on their "it's integral to the X1 vision", higher price point with weaker hardware etc then having "exclusives" saying things like this:
And then they say they're going to focus more/do more for PC gaming, are releasing dx12 (low level API which will benefit PCs more) and are releasing previous exclusives that "won't come to PC". That's a little bit strange. [conspiracy mode deactivated]

Developers/publishers in general need to do more for pc gaming. Not every game needs to be released on pc but the ones that do need to be more than rushed ports just to cash in.
By that logic even Nintendo and PC aren't competing but imagine if Nintendo games like Mario,Zelda,etc started being ported to PC wouldn't that affect Nintendo hardware sales ?
Not really. Nintendo's main target are younger kids and parents will buy them a Nintendo before they'd buy them a pc. Even if the parents already own a gaming pc it's unlikely they would be allowed to play on it. You might lose some older gamers but the core audience would be largely unchanged. Not only that but they would pick up sales from people who won't buy a console but want to play those games.
