Scott Miller on the Xbox

Scott Miller of 3DRealms has posted up his feelings about the Xbox. To make a long story short, he thinks it’s going to be a flop. Here is a little bit of what he had to say.

It’s hard to imagine that any hardcore PC game players will buy the X-Box. People with PCs will stick with PCs because PCs are by far the better game playing machine (assuming the PC has a generally equal CPU and 3D graphics card, and PCs for sale when the X-Box comes out should easily exceed the X-Box’s CPU power, and be close to equal with the 3D graphics card), because they easily support the mouse (you’re setting at a desk!), and the monitor is capable of displaying text that’s readable in something wider than a 50 column mode! Also, the PC has many other applications, and it has a keyboard (imagine trying to play a FPS without a mouse and a keyboard--and think about all those keyboard shortcut keys for so many other games), making it the best all-in-one solution for most people. Quite simply, few people with a PC, I think, will switch to the X-Box to play games when it’s easier to stay put on the PC.
