Valve is one company. Their revenue is... for one company.
If three companies competed equally in that space it would be billions / 3.

You get that, right?

Also, integrated graphics are still way below what the PS3 and Xbox can do, and yes, the PC is unpopular. Does that mean it doesn't generate funds? Of course not. But you're so quick to say that the flaw of consoles is the platform and that by making PC games they'd solve it. This ignores that a huge chunk of games are ON the PC now, anyway. It ignores that the problem may be the content, not the platform. And it ignores that the public overwhelmingly wants something they don't need to tinker with, hence Steambox.

I don't think you know just how underpowered the GPU in the current consoles are currently. Intel's HD4000 is just as powerful if not more so than the GPU in the current consoles.

HD4000 isn't giving graphics performance equal to consoles. Here are some benchmarks.

It's STILL behind current consoles. And new consoles are, what, 12-24 months out?

You can't quote PC benchmarks in comparison to consoles; the games aren't the same even though they may "look" the same. In terms of raw power, the HD 4000 approaches that of the 360 and PS3.

No, it doesn't. And what matters is how they play the same games, even though the HD4000 is typically doing it at a reduced resolution.
