Toss3, HL2 was released on multiple platforms. I brought up Crysis since its the most recent big AAA PC Exclusive... I guess we can mention Killzone 2 or Metal Gear Solid 5 which also outsold it (and they was on a platform with alot smaller reach).
I know Half-Life 2 was released on multiple platforms, but still it is one of the best selling pc-games ever(easily outselling most of the console exclusives). An MGs 4 to crysis comparison is almost as flawed as one comparing it to Halo3 - comparing Crysis to Killzone 2 on the other hand is much more on the money, but still flawed as Killzone 2 was playable on all consoles while crysis wasn't playable on almost any PC. Do you think Killzone 2 would have sold as many copies as it did if it contained a bug that made it unplayable on most PS3s?
My point was just that there is a lot of money to be made in the PC games industry and the few quality titles we have gotten prove it. Multiplatform is still the best way for a developer to get the most out of their titles though.
