The PC accounts for what, 4% of sales? Xbox 55% and PS3 40%?

Psh. With digital maybe, but most likely not even that. As far as retail is concerned, for the Assassin Creed franchise as a whole the PC is more like barely 2% of unit sales. 1% for actual revenue as PC tends to sell for cheaper than console. Hell, the PSP and NDS games for the franchise individually almost made more money than all of the PC sales! Those were developed for maybe about $20 each if the quality of them is any judge.

Factor in the extra DLC sales that come from having a larger install base on the XBL and PSN networks and the PC gets dwarfed even further in terms of revenue as the publisher gets a lot larger share of the DLC sales than they do for the retail sale.

That's a good chunk of change to bother with making a port, but if you are asking for more than the bare minimum than you are dreaming.
