1) It's a free to play game so no box sales.srodney said:I personally believe its the numbers. If we take this source as gospel for Battlefield 3 http://www.gamezone.com/products/battlefield-3/news/battlefield-3-xbox-360-sales-nearly-double-ps3 Written on November 3rd 2011
Xbox - 2,249,092 Sold
PS3 - 1,486,067 Sold
PC - 487,181 Sold
Total - 4,222,340 Sold
Even for a popular series the PC sales are not even close to the console sales. For a new and untested IP? I wouldn't even consider a port to PC.
2) Sales numbers for PCs never been accurate, mostly because they only include retail sales (Steam doesn't release sale numbers) and are limited to first month most of the time, while PC games tend to sell in longer timespan.
3) According to Pc Gaming Alliance, PC game revenue is higher than any single console, and overall makes up for 48% of total gaming related revenue (retail + digital + DLC + ads + subscriptions)
