The video game market is now mature and very, very surprisingly, the game dedicated platform (console) has prevailed over the multi-use platform(PC), a so untypical situation that indeed, studies have to be funded to show why it should have been otherwise.
Developpers move to consoles because that is where the buck is. And the buck is there because consoles as a dedicated platform, have come to dominate the market as the primary solution for people wanting to video games.
The article skips that little point and outlines piracy as the primary factor.
Piracy has effects but not the one to get the developpers moving to consoles.
