PC gamers often get the shit end of the stick when it comes to gaming. They have been told for decades now that "PC gaming is losing relevance" by larger hordes of console gamers who tout their Xbox 360s, PS3s, and Wii, all which ironically are outdated with 4-5 year old technology. They have to put up with ridiculous digital rights management software, put up by companies to deter pirates, but has shown relatively little success in doing so. What's worse is that many large publishers have decided to pander to console gamers and thus PC gamers often get shoddy console ports, when their hardware is capable of handling much better.

Unfortunately, Activision is one of these publishers. And they seem to be leaning more and more heavily in favor of their console customers over their PC gaming customers.

The issues first started with the PC launch of Black Ops, which was plagued with so many issues that some players couldn't even get the game to start up.

Now, Activision is stating that their Call of Duty: Elite service, which is meant to revolutionize the "social aspect" of gaming in the Call of Duty series, is going to be released much later for PC gamers. Elite is already ready for 360 users, and will be sometime this summer for PS3 users. Unfortunately, PC gamers are going to have to wait until Fall, giving them much less testing time for the service as Elite is slated to be officially released with Modern Warfare 3.

Revolution my ass.
"Upon the skies of darkness I saw it coming. With the speed only rivaled by light as it presented itself in the eyes of an avarage man, so called New Era Samaritan, as it described itself. But the transparency of it could not decive this avarage man as it tried desperately to hide and blind the world behind it. And all I had to say was: I saw you coming, I saw you try, I saw you as Brother Silver."

Activision and Microsoft (console side at the least) are assholes, working together to get everything for cod out on 360 first (and 360 not working with anything that isn't microsoft for the most part).  It's hardly revolutionary. >>

Also, I hardly think the pc gaming community is dying.  PC gaming tends to be more "revolutionary" than console imo, and pc games still have unique and good games coming out.  I like console and all, but there are less and less games coming out that I want on the consoles, it's all the same shit.

I wholeheartedly agree. I am just really quite sick of hearing people saying that PC gaming is dying. People have been saying that for a decade. Is this true? Hell no!

PC hardware is blowing console hardware out of the water.
