Dell and Sony DADC drop out of PC Gaming Alliance

Sunday, 20th March 2011 23:12 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The PC Gaming Alliance has suffered another blow as two more prominent members cut back their involvement.

Big Download reports top-level member Sony DADC – developers of SecuROM and associated technologies – has ended its membership entirely.

Dell, one of the organisation’s founding members, has reduced its association from “promoter” to “contributor”.

Epic and Intel are now the only founding members to hold promoter membership within the PCGA, along with latecomers Capcom and Razer.

Both Microsoft and nVidia parted ways with the organisation recently.

The PC gaming Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote PC gaming, combat piracy, develop new business models, and assist developers in creating PC games. Its members include software and middleware developers, hardware manufacturers, and retailers.

    I wonder why this fell apart all of the sudden??? It would be interesting to know what caused all the drop outs.

    @2 That just about sums it up. Considering the rates it charges for doing nothing for the last 3 years, it’s more of a ponzi scheme.

    With companies like Valve, Blizzard, Microsoft and EA missing entirely from PCGA they don’t really have much say regarding PC gaming at all.
