Just as I said, compatibility issues are problem.
Comparing consoles with my PC is funny. Try to compare Amiga and SNES / Genesis. Many games were ported, and amiga still died.
There are still couple genres that are easier to play on PC, and I don't think that piracy is killing it. Mostly people who download games are the same one that will not spend money on them anyway...
