Really would like to know the sales figures for Skyrim per platform.
Its entirely up to beth if they wish to release that info.

They won't, because then they'd get hammered by their PC fans. They want to keep saying the PC sells like shit, so they can keep getting straight cash from Microsoft for the Xbox shit.

If they admitted the PC actually sold more than well enough to warrant an actual PC game rather than a port, they'd have to give up their precious console. Far easier to keep pretending the consoles outsell the PC and keep programming for the lowest common denominator.

Um what? This makes no sense at all. Why? If they said the PC was the highest selling version they are still free to make console versions. To the best of my knowledge no Illuminati NWO lizard men would come and force them to only make PC games... Clearly effort was put into the PC version. They chose release for several platforms because that makes the most money by making it available to everyone. It was not some 1/2 assed port.

If the PC was making them so much money that consoles were detracting then they would just release PC only games. They are a company trying to make money not a cult. I have no idea where you got such a... bizarre idea from.
