Default PC Gaming Alliance - Name Change & Mobile Games

Yesterday, 04:35
Well you know the PC is dead when the agency that was supposed to revive PC gaming called the PC Gaming Alliance changes it's name to the Open Gaming Alliance.

The reason they give is mobile games are the future.

The PC Gaming Alliance was founded in 2009 with the purpose of advocating the growth and standardization of games on PC. Now, the non-profit’s mission becomes broader.

The group announced this week that it is changing its name to Open Gaming Alliance, or "OGA."

The name change comes after shipments in the traditional PC market fell nearly 10 percent in 2013, according to a March report from market research firm IDC.

OGA noted the need to recognize the rise of mobile games and how "the PC is no longer the dominant gaming form factor."

The group said its mission is to "keep the gaming ecosystem 'open'" and profitable for platforms including traditional desktop computers, laptops, tablets and 2-in-1s.

OGA president and Intel analyst Matt Ployhar said, "Most of the current and future members of the OGA will design their products to be increasingly cross platform, and the definition of 'Personal Computer' also continues to evolve."

OGA members listed on the group’s website include Alienware, Capcom, Intel, Logitech, and Razer.

The OGA also provides research on the video game market, and has an indie developer program.
Hint: (PC Gaming is not dead.)

What is the only nonquestionable difference between humans and animals?
The art.

Yay, we're humans because we're creative! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

What is the only unquestionable difference between PC gaming and othergadget gaming?
Modding. God help me but it's - modding.
And with modding, you go creative.

That "alliance" can change name into anything they want. Creativitiy will still be present only on PC.
Do you want your kid go creative? Buy him/her PC!
Oh you want him/her not to be? Plenty of consoles/phones out there to get. Don't buy one, buy all! You don't want your kid to miss some exclusive.
