CliffyB recently pissed off a huge portion of the gaming community buy basically saying PC’s suck. Sorry Cliffy, but Gears blew. It sold a lot of copies on hype. Halo 2 sold plenty of copies and it sucked. Gears just sucked slightly less.
“I think people would rather make a game that sells 4.5 million copies than a million and “Gears” is at 4.5 million right now on the 360. I think the PC is just in disarray… what’s driving the PC right now is ‘Sims’-type games and ‘WoW‘ and a lot of stuff that’s in a web-based interface. You just click on it and play it. That’s the direction PC is evolving into So for me, the PC is kind of the secondary part of what we’re doing. It’s important for us, but right now making AAA games on consoles is where we’re at.”
