Levine: “PC will always be the place that drives innovation”

Posted By | On 28th, Oct. 2010

Ken Levine of Irrational has said that if you want to know what the future holds for gaming, the PC is the answer.

“What’s the future of the PC? Social games? MMOs? Freemium? Fuck if I know. But I know this: The PC will always be the place that drives innovation, the PC is the place where great game developers are born, even—and maybe especially—where great console game developers are born.” he wrote as a guest editor for Kotaku.

“Halo, Mass Effect, Call of Duty…PC developers first. And it’s on the PC where the leading-edge ideas form, primarily because the barrier of entry is low.”

Levine believes that good ideas are born on PC much easier because there is “no middle men, no marketers, and no naysayers”.

“If you want to know the future of gaming, buy a PC, he said. “And pay attention. Because above all, that thing on your desk is a crystal ball.”

The next game coming out from Levine is BioShock Infinite, which is due for release in 2012.
