While gamers show general interest in next-gen hardware from Sony and Microsoft this holiday season, Nvidia’s Matt Wright believes that PC is “superior” to both machines, especially with its forthcoming line-up of smaller, living room-friendly units.
Speaking with MCV, Matt Wright from Nvidia stated, “We are proposing small form-factor PCs to be a viable alternative to the next-gen consoles. Enthusiast players want the ultimate games system and that is the PC.”
“The PC platform is far superior to any console when it comes to gaming, plus you get all the extra functionality that a computer brings,” he continued. “Steam now has more users than Xbox Live…there’s a huge community who love playing their games on PC.” Games like Minecraft and World of Tanks have certainly snared a fair share of PC users over the last few years, with the numbers continuously growing.
Nvidia should reveal its latest line-up of hardware next month at the CES show in Las Vegas, Nevada, and that may include some reference designs for small form-factor PCs. Last year at CES Nvidia surprised everybody by introducing the Shield handheld console — could they have another surprise in store for CES 2014
