i don't understand, what has changed? are consoles becoming less relevant than they used to be? the pc market has been shrinking and now the dev are focused on it?
In addition to what Haz said, I think the popularity of PC with Twitch streamers, youtubers ect is causing a lot of young people to get into it. Even a lot of my older friends who were on 360/ps3 last gen have got into PC gaming in the last few years. The only guys who know who still play on consoles are the type of casual gamers who buy a couple sports games and shooters every year but anyone I know who is a "serious" gamer is mainly playing on PC now.

Time was, PC and console libraries were two completely different things entirely. You almost never saw stuff like Doom, Half life, C&C, Lucasarts in its prime and the Blizzard stuff on consoles in their respective eras (or if there were ports, they were compromised ones), and the console stuff like fighters, JRPGs and whatnot never make it to PCs, so it was a conscious choice to go with one or the other. Recently, especially with this generation of consoles, almost all big titles outside of 1st party stuff are multiplatform, to the point where a PC is just the better bet - more control, free online, unlimited backwards compatibility, better performance, etc. I remember hearing from interviews that most games these days are built on pcs first anyway, so it just makes more sense to put that version out there as well.

The new AMD Ryzen 7 line of CPUs are still significantly weaker than the Intel I7-7000 and I7-6700 series CPUs for PC gaming:

The question is, is it worth the price?. I love my I7 but its overpriced.

If I can buy a Ryzen for way cheaper. I could support the competition.
