Just remember the days when you were young, at that time gaming referred to only PC and nothing because at that time PC was the only platform where we could play high end games. The head of Electronic Arts John Riccitiello believes that the future of gaming is in the PC market. This was true a decade ago but then with the rise of gaming console the trend changed but again the future seem to be in PC. Even newer trends began to grow in the industry.
In an interview with CNBC, Riccitiello said, “The fastest growing platform for video games today is the PC, but it’s growing through subscriptions, through micro transactions and through downloads.” That is to say, the PC game market has managed to have a comeback through the issue of convenience. You can now start playing a PC game, subscribe to an MMO, get everything on your computer, and even gain access to new expansions and add-ons without ever leaving your desk at home.
This you can also do on your consoles like a PS3 or Xbox 360 but the difference is on the PC, all the above is happening more and more to players who don’t even pay a dime. It’s through things like premium DLC and premium subscription fees that PC games are starting to turn a profit, and this is a business model that remains unproven on consoles. Riccitiello described it as “the culture of building something like a broadway play where you go on every night instead of a canned television performance that’s done once and it’s done.”
Apart from that consoles becomes outdated after a couple of years there is no such provision for up gradation but you can do that in a PC.
