i cant see any commercial shmup developers really supporting the pc due to piracy
you do realize that piracy isn't nearly as big of a deal as it's made out to be
I was about to say this. More people pirate on consoles than on PCs. Just because its easy to do, doesn't mean everyone knows how to do it. You'd be surprised how many people find bit torrent hard. Let alone usenet or irc.
*edit wow this is an old thread. Nevermind.
Hehe I didnt notice it was a old thread until I saw my own posts. But you are correct about many PC / console users been lazy or just not tech savey to bother with pirating themselves, many would rather just pay someother guy to do all the work.
There is quite a number of friends and acquaintances that have got themselves a PC but have no intrest in learning to use it, even for the most basic of tasks including virus security. Its common that im asked to help them fix their PC or get something set up on it. I wouldnt mind if they activly took an intrest in what I was doing so they could fix the problem themselves next time it happens. Generally nowadays if they arnt prepared to learn then I cant be bothered helping them. I just tell them to google the problem, its only basic stuff anyway.
its been awhile since i went to an arcade but those cabs in that picture are bloody massive for a 1p game
God know why I thought that, since the screens look an average size to me atm. Maybe I was looking at the first photo where the screen looks bigger
