Speaking to Develop, Valve boss Gabe Newell has said the success of Blizzard’s titles means PC gaming is alive and kicking.

“I mean, go ask Rob Pardo if PC gaming is dead – if he can take the time out from making money hats, I’m sure he’ll give you a really eloquent explanation of why probably the most valuable entertainment franchise of the moment is PC-specific,” he said.

Please, everyone. Please. Stop asking people is PC gaming is “dead”. It isn’t. It’s very obvious. There are millions and millions of people playing PC games. Please.
