Here's what will likely happen... The PC online count will remain much more steady than the dwindling console numbers. All platforms will level off after several months, but PC will remain higher than both consoles combined, and then some.
This is the major difference between the PC audience and the console audience. On the consoles YOU HAVE TO sell a maximum of units in the first two or three weeks. The majority of console revenue is made in this time period, dwarfing every number from the PC platform. But in the long run ... just look at Crysis 1. Deeply dissapointing sales in the first month, over the course of a year Crysis 1 becomes one of the most sucessful PC exclusives of the entire EA history.
