Well if you want to give me the 2017 data, then that would be fine too. I have to be specific, because there is a strong feeling in this thread that Steam has record sales numbers, but there are no facts to back it up. So I have to be as specific as possible in hopes that someone can either come reasonably close, or (more likely) come to the realization that the PC is not in fact doing amazingly well in North America. Some people think the PC is clobbering consoles. There is no data to support that, at least not in places like North America which have a healthy console market.
The thing is, why do I have to go out of my own way, to give you data from a specific point in time?.
You have a strong personal feeling, but that isn't being backed up itself. You're assuming something to being a fact, without actually backing up that side beforehand.
I just see it as you thinking PC is dog trash in NA, and that it'll never change, but general and revenue data from around the world, from various websites is saying things differently, but again, looking for specific data from a specific time-frame isn't going to automatically trump every data collection/reporting site out there, certainly not one random user on a site that's hardly mentioned as much on the internet.
"some people think PC is clobbering consoles", and you think it's doing worse, or somehow "50/50"?. According to global revenue, dev sales talks and general talks around the world, PC gaming seems to be doing amazingly better than it was 15 years ago.
Have you even considered taking on the even bigger giant?, the mobile market, which actually does make more money, is more popular, and has more users than consoles combined?. Will that be another "it can't be" situation you'll feel?.
