I think there are many PC gamers and Steam users who have low powered PCs aswell, or are mainly interested in a narrow band of PC RTS / MMO games etc.
There are def a lot of PC gamers with lower end systems, but look at Steam stats and even the lowest systems were more powerful than XB1 and PS4, with the 1060 being the most used card last gen, a card that matxched, and slightly exceeded, the most powerful console last gen in the OneX. Give it a couple more years (assuming the world gets back to normal and we can buy new PC tech soon lol) 'low end' systems will probably be matching XSX and PS5.
Thats just the way it is, and always has been, with PC gaming.

Whoa, didn't know FM4 is THAT popular. That explains the continuous support, and the lack of for FM7, sadly.
Its an amazing game to hop into even once a month just to check out some new races an free new cars. XSX version is sexy.

It was so obvious, people saying otherwise are just pushing agendas. Better change the approach and take the next step, to say that every other Bethesda IP sucks. After that just say that the GP MAU is because of 1 dollar accounts and then move to other silly goal post.

At last with Xbox IPs you can play in several different devices.

I ended buying both consoles because I still like my walking simulators that Sony releases.

Assuming the world gets back to normal the RTX3060 + RTX3060Ti should climb the charts super fast.
The RTX4060 should walk the XSX and have RT and DLSS3.0 Advantage.

That's why I said that, I like walking and sight seeing games and those are on PS5.
Quality walking and sightseeing. VR is great , I think you can get it on PC too or wait for PSVR2 but I don’t know how good PC waking sims are. Some people play Skyrim VR and just walk around.

As interesting as the LinkedIn profile of 343i employee that only mentioned Series S|X leading to speculation of Xbox One version of Halo Infinite being cancelled until being debunked by the community manager(he even updated his LinkedIn page to mention Xbox One).
This guy left Bethesda on June. I am pretty sure Grounded was also planned for all consoles before acquisition by Microsoft was finalized.

We all knew it was being made for PlayStation, how is this in any way interesting

Yep - the more interesting question is - is it *still* being made for PS? Priorities and Projects tend to shift dramatically when acquisitions are made. 🤪
