Sweeney: “PCs are good for anything, just not games.”

Tuesday, 11th March 2008 06:59 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Epic really needs to sort its message out. Tim Sweeney, the developer’s tech boss, has gone on the record to say that PC gaming has been outpaced by consoles.

“Consoles have definitely left PC games behind,” he said, adding, “PCs are good for anything, just not games.”

His comments echo Gears of War designer CliffyB’s assertion that PC gaming is in disarray, an outburst that VP Mark Rein was quick to
smack down.

Take a look at the rest of that interview. We somehow doubt Rein will be calling Sweeny an “idiot” any time soon.

    there’s no link to the rest of the interview, and the Mark Rein link is broken.

    he is entirely correct though. There is no excuse for new PCs to have no 3D capabilities these days.
