Or, if the pie slices are split up into 1 part instead of 4 parts, that one part might be larger than any one slice in the 4 part pie.
It might. But it's not likely that it would be larger than the 4 slice pie (3, really; the Wii doesn't get most of the multiplatform games), so it's less overall money cycling back into development.
[...]
But generally speaking, if aliens wiped out every Xbox and PS3 on Earth, it would be hard to say that the entertainment software industry would be making more money. And the mega-budget titles most likely to be held back by console limitations are the ones that need that money.
And I'm not saying the interactive entertainment industry as a whole would be making more money without consoles... i.e. I'm NOT saying that the 1 slice pie is larger than the 4 slice pie. In fact, if the 1 slice PC only pie in the alternate universe is only half the size of the 4 slice pie, it would still be bigger than the current PC market. Thats my argument, that without consoles PC would be bigger than it is today, but the industry as a whole would not likely be bigger in total dollars.
