But how can you say that PC gamers get the better version? If they are just a notch above what console gamers get, then what's the difference? That's my point. Put a console game on a PC and you have the same thing.
Because developers want all three versions to look the same anyway, it's less work for them but the PC always looks better in fidelity, due to AF, AA and native pixel for pixel resolution. PC version is cheaper as well.
PC gamers fix what developers did wrong and to a degree always have. Mods do that and so do small tweaks.
