    Standards

    Not every PC is a gaming rig and not every game runs on every rig. Consoles don't suffer from this problem. Then there's the fact that consoles are closed systems that allow the company that makes the console to charge develoers a fee for the right to make games on their platform. Nothing like being paid for shit you didn't have anything to do with eh? The PC is an open platform that anyone can make a game for. No one, other than Apple with the Mac, can charge fees or royalties to game developers on the PC. Microsoft is trying to change that with "Games for Windows," but I think we all  know how that's gonna pan out...

    And then there's piracy. Yes, you can pirate console games, but it's a major pain in the ass and the mods required run a high likelyhood of bricking your system. Hell, bricked systems actually amount to higher console sales so the hardware manufacturer actually gains quite a bit from console piracy. With the PC, piracy is fun and easy.

    Why would large game publishing corporations make games for a platform that they have no control over?
