Uther (continued): The PC industry has plans to climb up from where we are right now, be sure. I’m not so sure they are even down by that much. Heck PCI’s are starting to challenge AGP’s again.
We live in a tail chasing world.
Stormtrooper: I agree, I was thinking the same thing. For example Novalogic released Blackhawk Down for PS2 and Xbox. Instead of reviewing just the PC version we blend in the consoles also. Only real sims of course. I don’t think Air Combat 5 qualifies. At least not the one I played.
Joe: I think the focus should be high quality and high fidelity sims. There is no rule that those sims have to be PC releases, just the fact that up until now they have been. If a sim meeting those requirements comes out on a console, then I see no reason to ignore it just because it’s on a console.
A sim is a sim, regardless of platform.
