PC Gaming isn't dying, but rather losing primary focus from developers due to them migrating where the money is at.
I don't get why people always bring Crysis into the equation when comparing the number of sales between systems - half-life 2 would be a much more logical choice(at least when comparing a PC game to well-known titles such as Halo3). Crytek also aren't switching to consoles exclusively - they're just branching out to get more fruits from their labor just like Valve did with the orange box.

I bet that the PC version of the next Crysis is still going to sell the best even though the game is going to be available on all platforms.
