The problem is that many games that were considered PC only have moved over to the consoles due to technical advances.
I think it was said at the end of the last generation of consoles that consoles have just become PC's without the keyboard.
Off the top of my head I can think of FPS's was a PC domain before but now is the most dominant on consoles.
I still think that those games suit PC better but what can you do when the majority is buying on the consoles, money talks and so it has enticed a lot of developers over.
Even the whole online service thing of providing downloadable games that was all done on PC's first.
It brings us to the whole PC vs Console thing I personally know that a PC is definitely better than a console provided you have the right hardware. I mean just take a look at dirt 2 on the consoles compared to PC's but now the problem is games most major titles are being done on the consoles first even Crytek are making their latest iteration on the consoles.
However I still prefer gaming on my console due to the ease of use it provides pop in a game and already hooked up to a massive 50inch tv and surround sound speakers.
The only way forward for PC's is if they provide similarly easy setups either through cloud platform such as onlive or a service such as Steam.
I guess to sum it up consumers don't like too much choice as they get confused. With PC's you have so much choice that you don't know where to start.
Where on a console you have a limited choice and most big titles on PC's get ported over and while the best experience will remain on PC the console owner will have felt the missed out on nothing where the PC gamer won't have console exclusives.
I suppose there are gamers that don't care about those exclusives but by large they most do.
I personally hate updating hardware I like Nintendo with their gameboy and gameboy color and gameboy advance 20 or so years of the same hardware and backwards compatability done right with some of the best games and a simple interface to play.
