According to this report, WiiU sales are also way below expectations, along with sales of the games for it.

As I kept saying, the new consoles won't attract people as much as older generations did. WiiU is proving my point, now let's wait for the new xbox and PS and see if the trend continues.

Either way, console gaming sales crashed in 2012 and don't seem to slow down the crash anytime soon. Publishers, in their misguided vision of supporting consoles and ditching the PC, are about to rue that decision.

How would PC development would help?
Do you think the problem is the platform and not the content?
Do you think that PCs capable of running games as well as consoles outnumber consoles?
Why do you think the PC would be a draw when even Valve seems to be trying to make the PC more console-like?
Do you look at crashing PC sales, going down much faster than console sales, and think that's something other than an issue with the platform yet look at console declines and put the blame squarely on them?

I'll never understand how so many people think PC gaming is what the masses want. It isn't. It's what we want, but we're people that wrote bat files to get things to work. We're a different breed. We're not normal.
