PC Gaming! PC Gaming! PC Gaming! I guess that was the 100th time that we mentioned it within the last 5-6 weeks and againwe will say that PC Gaming is still rising higher and higher, especially after a disappointing start to the consoles as compared to the last generation of consoles. And it’s just not just because of the better hardware, not because of the E-Sports, not because of the cost, rather it is simply because there is huge amount of games, most of which have been put in the PC line-up in 2016.


Talking about games which were previously going to be available for the PC, we can see that there were already huge titles like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, Homefront: The Revolution, XCOM 2 and Dark Souls 3 were some of the multiplatformers making it to PC. Coming to the PC exclusives, there were creative games like Fortnite, Law Breakers, Mount & Blade 2 etc making it into the 2016 release calendar. Another game that was previously a PC exclusive which was later announced for PS4 as well was Kingdom Come: Deliverance. The most anticipated PC exclusive though is Star Citizen which is going to be the new benchmark in terms of graphics fidelity, according to the developers. Being the most crowd funded game ever, many people are expecting it to be the best game when it releases and if Roberts Space Industries delivers on what it promised, we could definitely have the game of the decade at least.


Coming to the console part of the discussion, Xbox One is the ‘ONE’ who has made the most aggressive moves. With Microsoft trying to make the PC and Xbox ecosystem into one, most of the all the previously Xbox One Exclusives will be coming to the PC as well. With major Titles like Recore, Scalebound and Quantum Break, all gamers might just jump aboard the PC community because the only thing that PCs lacked till now were major single player exclusives.


Also No Man’s Sky, which was previously a PS4 exclusive title is coming to PC as well. Another game that was later announced for the PC was Hellblade, a game by Ninja Theory, the developers of the reboot of Devil May Cry. Some other games are there which are limited to PS4 and PC. If you have a look at all the games coming out this year, you’ll notice that PC is getting a majority of titles which are either not in the Xbox camp or not in the PS4 camp, making PC a common platform.




Now that PC has so many games coming out this year, and all of the Xbox One games coming to PC, there is only very little choice between which gaming system to choose. What do you think about the games coming out on PC? Are you happy with the quality of games coming out. Let us know in the comments below.

    but don’t worry little pc INDIAN MUHAMEED BOOOM guy, PC still has one exclusive game, it’s called, NO GAMES LMAO

    1. lol, as if the exclusives are what matters. There are far more cross platform games and they are almost always superior on PC..

      1. AND those “superior” multipatform games on PC, sell at least 2 times more on CONSOLES so there you go

        1. Could you send a link to the stats. Or examples at least. (Not counting Arkham Knight, because it was all Rocksteady’s fault)

          1. my pleasure, and remember, consoles don’t even include digital sales

            GTAV – over 10 times more on consoles
            PC 4.3 million copies sold http://steamspy.com/app/271590
            Consoles 52.3 million copies sold http://www.vgchartz.com/gamedb/?name=grand+theft+auto+v&publisher=&platform=&genre=&minSales=0&results=200

            Fallout 4 – over 3 times more on consoles
            PC 3.1 million copies sold http://steamspy.com/app/377160
            Consoles 10.1 million copies sold http://www.vgchartz.com/gamedb/?name=fallout+4

            The Witcher 3 70% of the sales were on consoles https://www.reddit.com/r/witcher/comments/3m3vzp/witcher_3_70_copies_sold_on_consoles_30_on_pc/

            Metal Gear Solid 5 – more than 5 times on consoles
            PC 900k copies sold http://steamspy.com/app/287700
            Consoles 4.61 million copies sold http://www.vgchartz.com/gamedb/?name=metal+gear+solid+v

          2. GTA V has such a huge number, just due to the fact that it released on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and XBox One and also, these numbers include games that Steam sold, and not the ones that were bought physically. Also again all of those sales are divided over 2 platforms and the percentage of PS4 to Xbox owners is roughly 65% to 35%. And considering that the prev gen had sold 79 mn units of both consoles included, all this data become irrelevant unless you want to do a Console (Including PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360) vs PC, because practically it’s 4 v 1. I agree that games sell less on PC due to piracy, but not by much, considering individual platforms.

          3. consoles are consoles, pcs ar pcs, like there are 100 kinds of pcs, there are 4 kinds of consoles, and those 4 consoles DESTROYED those 100 types of pcs combined, physical sales for pc are 1 million, 1 million physical + 5 million digital, 6 million total wooptie dooo, 54 million on consoles, that don’t include digital console sales, so yeah , pc gamers don’t buy games, that’s why all the big games that you mentioned that were on pc first, are now on consoles and sell a lot more there and have a lot more players there, console gamers are buying $60 games day one, pc gamers are waiting 4 years for a $4 steam sale, that’s a fact

          4. PC as a whole is considered one platform. Do you see anywhere PC games being ‘Alienware’ exclusive or something? You can’t deny that overall PC platform is one and each of the consoles are separate. For many people who were looking to buy the PC version back in 2013, couldn’t get it and this way Rockstar strongarmed GTA fans to buy the game on the sub par consoles. So you can deny however you want, but that does not change the fact that PC had a disadvantage when it came to GTA V.

            Also GTA V hit PC more than one and half years after the consoles, and GTA V has been topping Steam Charts till as late as January this year. Let’s see how many total sales on the PC version happen by the end of the year. It won’t be much far off from the consoles by the time it’s finished.

          5. yes i see games being exclusive on dx12 pc hardware, quantum break, etc. you can’t play Quantum break on a pc that doesn’t have dx12 support in the hardware same as you can’t play uncharted 4 on xbox one, there are a lot of pc variants for gtav and only 4 console variants at the moment for gta v

          6. There are no GTA V PC variants lol. And QB for the most part is Microsoft’s own game and that was going to be XB Exclusive. And they are Windows exclusive not PC excluive. If you have Windows 10 you’ll be able to run it. And if you did have Win 7 or 8, you get a free update to Windows 10 and if you’re buying a new PC, rather go for Win 10. So your point goes invalid again.

          7. yes there are wtf are you talking about, you can have a pc with a gtx 970 and I5 cpu, you can have two 980ti sli and i7 extreme and the experience is much different, the ps4 is the same for 40 million people, a pc is not the same for the 135 million steam users, 65% of steam users are playing at UNDER 1080P, only 0.04% of steam users are playing at 4k, etc.

          8. You know what, you seriously need to get your mind checked up. Yeah we get GTA V which runs exclusively on GTX 970 and we get GTA V which runs exclusively on an SLi GTX 980. We also have special versions for the Titan and special versions for each and every damn processor. Wanna hear more, we have GTA V which are exclusive to SSDs as well. Also we have GTA V which run on 8GB RAm, 16 GB RAM and 32 GB RAM. We have thousands of different exclusives for all kinds of GPUs and CPUs. So yeah, we do get prority over consoles, since they have to only develop for 4 machines of sub par performance and work for us PC users without holding back on quality.

          9. GTA V 60 million copies sold on consoles without digital/bundle copies, 6 million copis sold on pc including everything LMAO


          11. Just remind me, when was the PS3 version released? And when was the PC version released

          12. just remind me, how much more has gta v sold on consoles than pc? 10 times?

      2. exclusives do matter, when you are picking the platform you are going to be using. If you are a Halo fan you would gravitate towards Xbox One. If you like Uncharted, you will go for Playstation. Its all about the games you dont want to miss out on.

    2. Final Fantasy, both XV and VII(Remake) are making it to PC, Persona (Not much into JRPGS) don’t care, Unchartered 4 OK and a majority of the other games I’ve seen are not interesting. Gravity Rush interests me, Yakuza 6 somewhat, but there are rumours that Yakuza 6 will make it to PC because Sega is pushing on the PC side, by porting older titles and is saying that they will add their games to PC libraries. Overall even though PS4 has exclusives, there are equally good exclusives on PC. And No Man’s Sky was the only game I was most excited about on the PS4 exclusives list, but when it was announced for PC I was more than elated.
