Activision has being reported to have left PC gaming alliance group, one of the founding members of the PC Gaming Alliance,Several people have noticed that the company’s logo was removed from the PCGA’s website recently. After being contacted for more information the PCGA had this to say:
“…a few members have decided they cannot justify the budget (membership and staff) required to maintain an active role in theat this time.”
Apparently Activision is one of those members; this is the second industry advocacy group that Activision has abandoned within the past year, the first being Entertainment Software Association in July of 2008.
The PC Gaming Alliance, who states “One of our main major objectives is to provide one voice on [the] PC gaming market. There’s no one source that says ‘hey this is where the PC market is going’. Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft are always calling their market share – we’re going to call our market through this group,” still consists of industry leading members such as Microsoft, Capcom, Epic, GameStop, Sony, Intel, AMD and Nvidia.
The PC Gaming Alliance has lost one of it’s largest members, but reminds us that it’s current members are sticking around for the long haul.
