MS Gaming Shakeup?

On the heels of a rumor that J Allard is leaving Microsoft, the Wall Street Journal (subscription required) reports on plans for a shake-up at Microsoft's Entertainment & Devices Division "as early as this week." Word is: "Microsoft Corp. is expected to shake up the management of its division focused on videogames, mobile phones and other devices, in the wake of increasingly bruising competition from Apple Inc. and Google Inc. in the market for consumer devices, according to people familiar with the matter." Thanks Kotaku.

The PC's strengths are in modding and complex controls for genres that need it.

If PC gaming has no clear advantage then what's the point? And I don't mean how shooters play better with KB/mouse. That's inconsequential to a ton of people.

I think the last PC gaming bastions are MMOs, RTS, TBS and complex simulation. The games tend to not register on console people radar.
