PC gaming is dieing. Most pc gamers download game torrents instead of buying from retail.

Also people need high end cpu's and gpu's for graphic design and video editing etc, the people buying them arent all gamers, so take that into account.

Overall, consoles are killing PC when it comes to game quality and sales

The reason PC games get killed in retail sales is because we use digital distribution..

I haven't gone to EB Games and purchased a game in over 2 years.

Why leave your house when you can get it off Steam or D2D.

And what do you mean "quality"? Have you ever seen a PC exclusive? Have you ever seen a multiplatform game on a PC? Looks a hell of a lot better than anything a console can do.
