He is correct.
You can make more money making games for two consoles and the PC, then the PC by itself.

Isn't it always better to release a game on multiple platforms than 1?

I can turn that argument on its side and say that its better to release a game on 2 consoles and pc instead of just one console.

i have been a pc gamer since i was 2, but i also play alot of consoles. When pc gaming had developers creating titles that utilized pc specific features it was good. they could afford to make pc exclusives because there was not as much piracy and games were cheaper to dev.

now most developers realize their game will not always be a AAA title. So they cut quality by dividing up dev teams to create console water'down game.

these devs are just lazy and blame piracy. Valve has had and still has a huge community of gamers, because they create games that people will buy and go back to year after year
