Is PC Gaming Doomed?

So asks Windows guru Paul Thurrott in a good article here.  My own view is that no it won’t be given the sheer number of PCs available in the world. But it will become a niche area of gaming especially for flight sims, strategy games and games like Armed Assault. It’s very expensive to build a PC only game with little guarantee of a good return on investment. Good developers like Battlefront and Eagle Dynamics known their respective areas of wargaming and flight sims and that’s what they will stick with. It’s the likes of EA who would abandon PCs if there is no return for them. Microsoft hasn’t helped with the closure of it’s flight sim division.
