Yes, to see the whole story you have to see what the "margins" are for selling digital vs. hard-copy. Taking the middle men out of the picture (and all the costs related to distribution), the margins have to be very, very good in comparison. Granted, that's not enough $$ to make up the difference, but it means that the PC platform is definitely a viable gaming platform at this moment in time and, as the market moves more digital, should continue so into the future. In other words, the PC market is healthy, just not AS healthy as the console market which is just friggin' gi-normous in comparison.
