You're missing the point. If you want to find a game on XBL it will have a larger community.

No you're missing the point, it will depend on the game and popularity doesn't equal quality. I said Steam was a better service, I didn't say it was the most popular. Some games have a larger audience on the PS3 and PC anyway. Not that it even matters, I want to find people to play the game with, I don't need to play it with everyone on the planet.

As for the world we live in, there are billions of PCs in it, of course sales are slowing, we long ago reached critical mass. That has no bearing on my point nor is it indicative of platform viability.

Ok, this is just devolving into strawmen, so it's become pointless. Steam is an awesome service. But you have to be some kind of jerk to sit around and act like other platforms aren't fun and couldn't be preferred by perfectly rational people. It doesn't make them "fanboys" or "butthurt," it means they have different measures of quality than you do. Ones that are often just as valid.
