That's because consoles appeal to the lowest common denominator of prospective consumers looking to purchasing gaming equipment. hurr durr
[QUOTE="DroidPhysX"][QUOTE="whiskeystrike"] Mmm yet they sap every single developer's attention from PC gaming. PC is merely a placeholder for lowbudget devs and MMOs (which I fully expect to become prevalent next gen). Every relevant dev wants to be on console. They enjoy customers who pay for their products whiskeystrike
No, they appeal to everyone.
And lol, only a PC gamer would call it "equipment"Not really. The reasons why console sales are absurdly high is because they're cheap and don't require that much of a set up. The Wii for example appealed (And was designed to appeal) to casuals which are a part of the lowest common denominator. And then came xbox w/kinect, PS move, more casual games, etc. Being a PC gamer is irrelevant to the discussion a la ad hominem fallacy.
