Yes it's the same on consoles. The difference is how far away you sit from the screen on a console. Low fov isn't a problem if you are sitting 6-8 feet away from the screen, but most PC gamers are right in front of their monitors, which makes a low fov garbage. Either developers these days are lazy or just plain ignorant to that fact...take your pick.
