If IW/3arc/Activision hadn´t stopped paying attention to what pc gamers want the number would be much higher. But they didn´t do that did they. Instead they chose to give pc gamers a crippled game and as a result pc gamers left the franchise. They made it clear a long time ago they don´t want us to have nice things and this time around it won´t be any different.

I agree.  They left us first, but they did it to focus on the larger market.  Unfortunately the BF series is similarly biased (console vs PC).  At least there, PC BF is #24 and at 78K.  Still way behind BF on consoles.

They did what any for profit company would do, they went where the money is. Crying about it won't change it.

COD on pc could be much larger if they just give us what we want so you could say they didn't go where the money is.

Does this really surprise anybody? PC is simply a smaller market than console. The most played game on Steam is DOTA 2 with 500k players at peak times. COD is the most played game on console and it peaks at 3-5 MILLION players online at a time. PC is a niche platform in comparison. So of course it's going to sell less. Also another thing to keep in mind is Steam doesn't release sales numbers so the only PC sales numbers you have to go off of are retail and let's be real here a lot of PC gamers don't buy retail games anymore.

Let’s face it a console is just a cheap PC, with a controller instead of a mouse and keyboard. The fact of the matter is this, the game is developed on PC’s, built on PC’s, run by servers aka PC’s, updated by PC’s and evolved by PC’s. This is just to please the mass market of an inferior gaming platform. This entire new tech is driven by PC’s, without a PC any game just would not exist.


The only thing we can thank the console community for, is the funding they have provided to allow the growth of on-line gaming to become mainstream. The digital age is solely being driven by the PC, in years to come a PC will replace all consoles in the living room, as a true multi-media platform and home entertainment system. The PC is simply the ultimate platform and a test-bed for new tech!!!

True. The only difference between a console and a PC, is the hardware and a controller instead of a keyboard and mouse. As #PCGamers there are a lot of us who take great pride in our gaming rigs, spending a lot of money on our hardware. So as we have invested a sizeable amount of our hard earned cash, why should we not be able to enjoy gaming at the highest level? IW has repeatedly stated that they want to deliver the best gaming experience possible. The omission of basic features like a FOV slider, to name just one, is the developers’ not delivering on that promise. So our frustration and disappointment continues sadly.
