According to the San Jose Mercury News, a group of major PC gaming firms – namely Intel, Microsoft, nVidia and AMD, as well as “a number of computer companies – is going to announce “a consortium dubbed the PC Gaming Alliance” at GDC.

The group is being set up, apparently, in the face of the fact that console gaming has “stolen the excitement”, the point of the venture being to keep “PC gaming alive”.

There’s no detail on how they’re actually going to do it, but this is heartening nonetheless. Go PC gaming.
