PC Gaming Alliance loses Microsoft and Nvidia

By on February 21, 2011

According to PC Gaming Alliance’s president, Matt Ployhar, Microsoft and Nvidia have left the PC Gaming Alliance. These companies were two of the founding members of PCGA. Surprising news, as PCGA stated a few days ago that PC Piracy has declined. We can understand Microsoft leaving the alliance as they are focused on their console and its latest controller, Kinect. But then again, what happened to those statements that they will support further the PC platform? And what about Nvidia?

Ployhar said he doesn’t believe that the departures will affect the PCGA, which is shifting from being a research-led group to an organisation that will be more active in trying to assist game developers, publishers and hardware companies create better PC games. Whether or not this is true, there is one thing we are certain of. The image of PCGA was damaged. We hope that the alliance will keep up and bring more developers to the PC platform!
