They focus more where there's more money to be made....

Yes but collectively speaking (as is the matter at hand) devs stand to make tons more money from a multiplatform console game than they will ever do on PC, mainly because of the higher disc and digital game prices( digital console prices are outragous), far less and slower discounts and significantly less chances of their games getting hacked and pirated.

Thus, the reason they put more effort in optimizing console code.

PS: And who said they werent making any money on PC? They simply make less.

According to Steam Spy, the average mulitplat sells better through Steam than the Xone versions: http://www.dsogaming.com/ne...

Sony said they made the PS4 Pro to try and stop people from going to PC: http://www.digitaltrends.co...

If money wasn't being made then the platform would be looking a lot like the Wii-U right now.

how does it matter as long as you can play at 4K/60fps. isn't that all PC is about? GRAPHIX!!!!!!

sorry but that's what i've been told all this while. i know the ones vocal does not represent the PC gamers but if they feel they're being shorthanded then they can alway buy games on consoles. yes, on console you pay for online and the games are expensive as hell. that's why may be devs give more attention to console because console gamers are paying a lot more for the same game.

just my 2 cents.

They focus more where there’s more money to be made….
