same = easy

If they're all the same, there are less issues with development.
If they're all different, you have to design the product to work with EVERY configuration.

Do you see where an in-game server browser for PC games might cause some issues? It caused a TON of issues for the first 6 months after BC2 was released. I really don't want another rehash of that **** again. However, a web-based browser means that the net-code is the same on all systems, regardless of hardware configuration. Therefore, there will be less issues for PC gamers.
