PC gaming isn’t dead, but it is in disarray as some people put it. Initiatives like Steam and SteamWorks are solid attempts in making things easier for developers, but one company can only do so much. Have no fear. The PC Gaming Alliance is here to save PC gaming.
The alliance consists of Nvidia, AMD, Acer, Alienware, Intel, Dell, Gateway, Activision, Microsoft, Epic and hopefully more by the end of the year. With both major hardware and software manufacturers on board, the PCGA is hoping to raise awareness concerning PC gaming’s health, standardize minimum system requirements for games, address piracy issues and even improved distribution models.
Things look promising, but until I start seeing results: I’ll be cautiously optimistic.
