PC gaming "in disarray", says Cliffy B

"Right now making AAA games on consoles is where we're at," says Gears of War man

Uh-oh, Epic superstar Cliff 'Cliffy B' Bleszinski is at it again, this time speaking about what used to be his company's biggest baby; PC gaming.

Speaking to MTV's multiplayer blog, the Gears of War man says that the current state of PC gaming is in "disarray," and explains why right now he'd rather be making games on consoles (and yes, it has something to do with money).

"I think people would rather make a game that sells 4.5 million copies than a million and Gears is at 4.5 million right now on the 360," he said.

"I think the PC is just in disarray... What's driving the PC right now is Sims-type games and WoW and a lot of stuff that's in a web-based interface. You just click on it and play it. That's the direction PC is evolving into. So for me, the PC is kind of the secondary part of what we're doing. It's important for us, but right now making AAA games on consoles is where we're at."

Can't argue with him on the sales, but I wonder what Mark Rein has to say about PC's "secondary" part in Epic's plans?
