One is to build a base for your system, to show it's being supported and to hope for a big franchise a la Uncharted/Halo/Gears, the other is generally to bring attention to you and sell systems. And that's all I'm saying.

To Microsoft's credit, it was smart of them to cancel the PC version as well. You'd be amazed how much that has been undermining my console game purchases this gen.
none of which you pointed out or stated initially. while that certainly may have been the point you were trying to make, your words certainly did not make them for you.
