End of console life cycle = Upturn in PC gaming. New consoles = Downturn in PC gaming.

I almost wanna agree but actually PC Gaming quietly got better while all the attention went towards this console generation.

But for the most part your are correct!!

Most certainly you can now Develop a game across multiple platforms but it's still always better to have those games that can only be done with the unique capabilities and freedom of the PC. With DX11 and everyone on board with the various ways the PC can generate revenue PC gaming is flourishing even more.

The PC for the most part is where game genre's start out, gain popularity then cross over to the Console!

Next console generation will see more online MMO's! just like this console generation was over whelmed with online FPS!
