As far as the PC being the least profitable - you're right, but if they're not interested in pleasing the PC gaming market, then they could move on and developers that *are* interested will take up the slack. Devs like Tripwire, and Dice.
Stop buying the ports (only one I've touched recently is BFBC2) - their profits dry up, they ignore the PC altogether - real PC devs move into the market. Just my 2 cents.
Yeaaa . . . no. If all the studios that made console ports pulled out of the PC gaming market, PC gaming as we know it would die. At this point in time console ports are keeping PC gaming alive.

I do agree that if they made them just for PC's then they could have made a slightly better game for the PC.
However, I wonder if they even would make it then?
If they would only make 20% of the amount of money if they released them on consoles too they would most likely scrap the project in favor of a console only project.

Console is a preference, not everyone wants to game on a PC.
Good point. What makes PC gaming any more special then console gaming? Just because we paid more for our platform?
