Buhahaha what a shitty sales! Come on try better excuses. Todays developers give less and less about pc as a platform. Oh and about how pc gamers you do know that COD is one of the best selling and most pirated games on pc same as sims. You really should STFU! Pc games sell like shit because most of the gamers have migrated to consoles since they see no reason to spend a fortune on uprgading you pc and wasting your life playing all those console ports.

also, did you know that only consolefags take vgchartz numbers seriously, also, since most DD services are private, the real PC sales are far beyond what vg shows, furthermore, specific PC games sales are pretty much always be lower than consoles, becauce unlike console gamers, we have access to tens of thousands of games, plus emulators, so the audience is naturally more divided, PC gaming simply offers variety, unlike consoles, where the only games that get bought high budget shallowness. Just look at top selling games on each console and you will understand my good f(r)iend :)

show me at least one hardcore game on console and I'll laugh, PC gaming has never been mainstream and god forbid i hope it never gets, bacause I don't want to be anywhere near a community whose famourite games are cod, gears, battlefield and NFL :D what a disgrace to gaming. It was id's fault they released such a crappy port, regardless, the game was meant for consoles and it show in quality of gameplay and graphics, it's a disgrace for id, sad to see another dev go down the path of medciority, cause it's the only way to go when you're going with consoles. They worked 6 years on that game and it barely got 400k sales, and it's an FPS omg! Btw, Carmack said at qaukecon it was a mistake to focus on consoles and that future projects will be on PC firstly

Yep you got that right. Everything is booming on consoles. Casual hardcore everything. Unlike on pc where only the caual farmville games are bringing home the money. PC HJC game sales are SHIT! Oh and so you don't have to worry about configs or system requirements on pc for years. STFU! Just the other day rage was released and the pc version worked like shit with specific graphics cards so you sir are a lying moron. ID software used to be pc exclusive developer and now they said that pc will never again be the leading platform. So take you serious hobby and play the console ports on your crappy pc.
