So not even close to true. RAM and CPU are big limitations right now, and affect far more than just visuals. Ever notice how multiplatform games have lower player limits on consoles than on the PC (even the ones that use dedicated servers)? That's just the tip of the iceburg. Since many PC games are also multiplatform they're limited by the consoles, so you don't see how it could be if the consoles were less constraining.

Yes I'm aware console limitations typically restrict games to 32 players max in one arena. And that's about the only limitation a person can point to. PC darling The Witcher2 is being back-ported with content intact. Anything blizzard makes would fit. Square managed to pull off an MMO that shared the servers with PC players LAST gen. Sony says even Planetside2 is possible to be ported with reduced player counts. So as I said, in terms of game design they can still do pretty much anything they want.
