          PC players are the people with the money and dedication for gaming. Seems right they would be more online. Console is just a quick fix for a frag if you ask me.

            Nicely put Superfast! One can only imagine what the game might have been like if it was PC exclusive.

              I drool at the thought of what this game could have been as a PC exclusive game. PC is the best platform for FPS's in my opinion.

                  I have not seen hard numbers on this yet however I HOPE it does not mean that sales are lower than expected for consoles. Would love to see some concrete sales stats to compare the consoles and PC as well as with play time and such. These numbers will be a huge part of the justification of the future direction DICE takes towards Battlefield including support for this title.

                    I hope sales ARE lower than expected for consoles. If it ends up as a trend we can hope for dedicated PC titles that they can port to consoles rather than the other way around.

                      No, not combined. If you look a few posts down, he restates the quote saying that PC out sold each individually, NOT combined. Still that puts it in the top 5 for number of active player for an online FPS.

                        Console players make up the majority of the gaming world. If the sales there are lower than expected and PC does not make up the difference in expected sales then that is a very bad thing. It is a great product and I hope it does very well. Good sales for Bad Co 2 is good news for the future of Battlefield players.

                          I highly doubt that.

                            No small achievement, if you take into account the numerous disconnects and long stretches of downtime!

                              They definitely makes up the large majority of sales.
