Yes because "Leading Digital Platforms" totally says "Consoles" and is in no way a reference to Steam, GOG.com, Origin, Amazon Digital, Gamestop Digital etc.

I see your point, guess it is just semantics. I never think of those in the context of a platform, but a service.

Those are Digital Distribution Platforms. Consoles are Physical Distribution Platforms. Yes, both PS3 and 360 have started carrying digital downloads of games as well. But Homeworld was a PC game, and they are looking to make a quick turnaround by re-releasing the originals with minimal effort put in. Meaning probably higher resolutions and a new Online service for multiplayer at best. They aren't looking to figure out how to make them work on a console, that would take far more effort than getting them put back out into the PC space, where they belong.
