Anyone know if Need for Speed fanbase on PC is as big as the 360 or ps3's?

Yes I'm willing to bet it's pretty small.

NFS is garbage

don't play it for the community or multiplayer, play them for the racing experience

I'd have to wager small.

Might want to check around forums.

This, need for speed turned into terrible games from what they used to be.

BTW, PC community will be dead faster than the consoles because not-even-average arcade 'racing' games don't have a notable fanbase from PC gamers in the first place.

Biggest reason being that console gamers tend to migrate to the latest and 'greatest'. PC users play games that spread over decades. Communities are usually smaller on pc but more dedicated (for good games). NFS isn't one of those good games in the eyes of most pc gamers. The community will be good for a couple months at most I'm sure.

I say 2 months on PC at best. 5 or so months on Consoles.

But that's just my prediction.
