Why do PC gamers feel so entitled to have all games published on PC?

Lol the writer of the last article says that piracy is horrible and yet used games sales are fine and that used game sales are actually GOOD for the industry

He then also basically says that a pirated copy=a lost sale which is completely bulls***

All credibility lost.

And a few months later---

As long as PC games doesn't sell as much as consoles not all games will be released, or will not be optimized like Tomb rider which will look better on PS4 and Xbone since developers are making an optimized version and not a port like they did with pc

I don't think you know what "port" means.

The "infinite number of hardware configurations" argument is just stupid; the whole reason we have APIs in place to negate that ever being an issue as long as the video card manufacturer is competent with the driver support.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

Piracy is just as rampant on consoles. Hear about gta5? You sound ignorant

Piracy is also present on consoles, but you're just foolishly deluding yourself if you think it's anywhere near as easy or rampant as on PC.
