Editorial A few years ago I wrote on OSNews several articles (1,2) about workstations. After three years I had to stop, because there were no workstations left on the market, they became legacy and were not sold any more. Now with the rise of mobile devices with touchscreen and wireless network connectivity virtually everywhere, the question becomes valid, what will happen with the desktop computers, are they still needed, or will they follow the workstations on their way to computer museums?

Yea but this time the pc is really getting slapped around. Last gen the pc was able to attract more developers by having significantly better graphics and network play. Now that consoles are in HD and have network access the difference isn't as significant. Developers are fine with current tech and like how console owners are far less likely to pirate.

NVIDIA and ATI keep adding advancements to their cards but game developers don't care. The gamer with the $300 video card just isn't worth targeting.

This was true three years ago, when the actual console generation was new; today any PC which is just a little above average can do the same. This year we will see a lot of new, interesting games on the PC, that have been already announced.

And this was true for the previous console generation, when it was new.

And this was true for the previous generation of the previous generation.

And so on...
