Why is it too much to ask to get features out on time for the PC? The PC has a need because of the way it is and forcing consoleness on it just doesn't cut it.
What is up with all of you being obsessed with consoles somehow "poisoning" the market? The market is different than it was in the late 90's and early 2000's. The name of the game is to strike while the iron's hot. It's more profitable to release a game earlier and release mod tools and extras later because it requires fewer personnel.

Publishing/developing a game today is completely different from 10 years ago. The market is vastly bigger and the largest percent of sales are on console. It's business, and the PC fanboys take it personal. They don't give a **** about "who supported them" and got them to "where they are". It's a numbers game. And if you were in the position, you'd make the same decision, and if you wouldn't, the share holders would terminate you.

EDIT: few ninja edits in there...
