The PC Gaming Alliance today welcome two new members into the fold, as publisher Capcom and Southern Methodist University's Guildhall program signed up to help defend the PC market against "oh, it's dying" allegations.

The Guildhall (already a member, but who are now joining the group's board) is one of America's biggest and best game development education providers, while Capcom...well, you know Capcom. Seeing as they're one of the longest-serving champions of the PC port (from Devil May Cry to Bionic Commando), we're actually slightly surprised Capcom weren't onboard from the get-go.

isn't that alliance some useless whining thing then? maybe I'm mistaken, but I haven't seen any difference before AND after it existed.

The only case in which I saw a clear decrease of pc titles was when the ~oh-so-pc-oriented~ microsoft launched their xbox.

Capcom Joins PC Gaming Alliance
Everyone is fighting for the good of PC gaming

Capcom will help PC Gaming

The gaming industry is forever changing, with trends appearing and disappearing in a relatively short time frame. As opposed to a few years ago, when the PC was the primary target for a lot of game developers and publishers, now, because of the growing phenomenon of piracy on it, a lot of companies are turning their heads towards consoles, like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which are almost pirate-proof and are much more easy to make a game on, due to their unique configuration.

But although a lot of analysts and industry representatives have claimed for quite some time that PC gaming will eventually die, a lot of companies directly involved in it have formed an alliance in which they can invest as a whole in projects that will benefit this platform. Made up of hardware manufacturers, like Intel or AMD, and developers such as Epic Games or Microsoft, the PC Gaming Alliance has implemented a lot of measures in order to make the PC an attractive platform for other corporations.

But the Alliance is ever growing, and has just announced that popular Japanese game developer and publisher Capcom and the Guildhall at Southern Methodist University, one of the most popular graduate video game education programs currently employed in the United States, have joined its board of directors. The two entities have expressed their opinion that only with the help of a lot of companies can PC Gaming become a bigger threat to consoles.

“Capcom believes strongly in the value and strength of the PC gaming market as a global platform for our entertainment brands,” said Christian Svensson, vice president, business development and strategic planning. “Our participation in the PCGA’s activities over the past year has greatly improved our understanding of the market, provided us great business opportunities and allowed us to participate in improving the field of PC gaming. We’re pleased to have a representative on the board in order to directly help shape the future of the PC gaming environment.”

Capcom was already doing its part to help PC gaming as, in the past, it brought titles made exclusively for consoles such as the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 to this platform, like the Devil May Cry series or the recent Bionic Commando remake. Let's hope that companies will begin to take more interest in the PC so that we can enjoy great games on this platform.

ah yes....lovely Capcom...the same people who decided to add a few new weapons and a multiplayer mode into Lost Planet, and decided to create a whole new game with a new-game pricetag....don't forget about publishing a casual shovelware game based on Neopets and charging 30 bucks for it (not to mention the laughable system requirements for a simple 2D puzzle game)

Their consistency is lacking, to say the least.

Yeah, I was playing Devil May Cry 4 today and it's been a lot of fun, I finally survived the 3rd stage, yeah I suck as it, but the lesbian frost demons oO and giant toad demon :???: did me in, :dead: still I liked it enough to prepurchase Street Fighter 4 for the PC, I hope I'm making a wise investment.

Lesbian frost demons oO

Pics or it didn't happen. They should put that stuff in the demo and say "More to come..." in the end of it. That'll boost sales. Hell it'll save PC gaming from going down.

Yes her thighs are entirely too big. Bigger is certainly NOT better in this case.
