Founding members ditch PC group.
Not that this makes any sort of difference. Matt Ployhar, president of the PC Gaming Alliance, has announced that two of its founding members, Microsoft and nVidia has decided to leave the gang.
Ployhar said that the departures will not affect PCGA in any sort of way, as they move forward with plans to “assist game developers, publishers and hardware companies,” in making better PC titles.
“Another key thing we’ll be doing is creating a more technical based advisory board that you’ll all be hearing more about very soon,” said Ployhar. “We’re doing this to flesh out the PCGA’s technical expertise while simultaneously addressing perceived gaps in membership.”
PCGA’s existence was formed to market PC games, provide marketing research tools, combat piracy and help firms develop better business models for retail and online. Of course, any of that is yet to materialize.
Ployhar did not comment on why the two companies chose to leave, however, a nabbing suspicion tells me that they both saw it as a massive waste of time.
