As expected, the PC Gaming Alliance
have officially unveiled themselves at the GDC in San Francisco this week, formed by a group of major players in PC gaming, including developers, hardware manufacturers and software publishers.
Microsoft, Dell, AMD, Activision, Intel, Nvidia, Razer, Acer and Epic have all joined forces
in order to “promote the PC gaming industry and the PC as a gaming platform” and will serve as a unified voice to combat the lack of reliable PC sales data, widespread piracy, and perhaps most importantly, standardize minimum system requirements.
This nonprofit organization has noble intentions, but other pointing out that many current games have incredibly high system requirements and a vague suggestion that it may be time to consider free-to-play models to combat piracy, there are still no specific details on how the alliance will champion PC gaming. We’ll have to wait and see how this develops.
