one thing worse than dying is torture and thats what pc is going through every time they have a game cancelled or someone makes a game for xbox/ps3 but not pc.....oh and when a pc exclusive goes to console (soon diablo III according to job listings)

its not dead but IT IS dying.


if revenue increasing 19% YoY is dying I don't want to go on living http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/03/01/pc-is-strong-pc-games-revenue-up-20/

It increased in 2010 due to the new WoW expansion and Starcraft II.It's easy to increase YoY when you have a weak year,and thats why revenue will be down a lot in 2011.

 

Considering Activision's financials saying they made 1,555 million from PC in 2010 (http://investor.activision.com/secfiling.cfm?filingID=1047469-11-1413) I don't think those two games alone account for the 19% increase to $16.2 billion in revenue, as that is an increase of almost 2.5 billion $. and 2009 was up 3% YoY and 2008 was up 18% YoY...
