It maybe be harder to port to but its still the console with the best hardware.

What the fuck? Max PC usually isn't biased, but that was a low blow... mocking the PS3 like that! the PS3 is amazing! Don't even dare!

Mighty BOB!

Xiongrey is right.  It isn't bias.  The Playstation hardware has always been notoriously the "hardest" of the major consoles to develop for due to Sony's esoteric quirks.

Its not bias to state that something is different than similar or competing products. They are just saying that the PS3's architecture is different enough from the xbox360 and pc that to port a multiplatform game to it requires more work than the others.

When you say PC, I assume that means it works on Linux and BSD natively as well, right? Because otherwise, it's not appropriate to use that term.

Using the term PC implies that it supports all PCs with adequate hardware. My Linux computer is a PC with hardware more than capable of running Crysis. Yet I cannot run it natively on Linux therefore it doesn't support my PC and therefore it cannot be said that the Cryengine supports PCs. Only that it supports Windows.

Soooo -  you're telling us that Crysis can't run on WHINE?

If you want to get PC about PC, then technically you cant say that it supports windows either. Since anything before Microsoft Windows 95 didnt have DirectX.

Ubuntu alone has millions of users. Hardly insignificant. 

PC is a shorthand term to refer to an IBM PC Compatible computer (or more generically, *ANY* personal computer regardless of hardware). PC in the context of an IBM PC Compatible refers to the hardware, not the software. It describes computers which all use hardware following the same basic standards and that are, therefore, compatible (well mostly) with each other. The term PC does not refer to a specific software platfrm.

The car analogy doesn't work because a car refers to a vehicle for motorized transport and not to a specific fuel source.

Mac refers to a brand, not a type of computer (Macs are IBM PC Compatibles as well now). It's more appropriate to compare the term Mac to say Dell or HP rather than PC.

Exactly, pc refers to the hardware, so saying it will run on a pc is not incorrect. The fact that you choose to run an os that cannot run it, then gripe about it not being able to run it just shows how ignorrant you are. You chose Linux, live with it. I choose Windows and I'm not griping about it not being open source!

 annnnd completly irrelevent.

This isn't some game for your PC its a developers engine. Hell it could run on mac, what matters is the what the kit uses at the base, is it C? Cobal? Etc. Hell depending on how it is intergrated the DEV pvs could be DOS
