Wow. I have a PC hooked to my TV and frequently play with a 360 controller or ps3 controller as much as with M/K. I seriously think people overplay PC piracy. While PC piracy is a problem, there is also piracy for the other consoles and I feel like used console game sales make a huge dent in publisher earnings that are comparable to PC Piracy issues if not worse.

This. Used game sales are far worse for the publishers bottom line than the bogey man they try to make out of piracy. Publishers also see a much higher percentage of profits through digital downloads as well which is how the majority of PC games are sold.

No, PC will take over; when dumb uneducated poor people seize to exist which is never.


So painfully hypocritical....


Is it an insult or sarcasm?


It has something to do with "seize" and "cease" not being the same word.

My favorite video, very spot on and does actually speak the true about PC gamers at the least.

Why does Pachter get so much hate? He's an industry analyst, not Nostradamus. Plus he gets paid to do what he does while you b**** about games on forums.
