It is because a high end PC will crush anything that is made for 360/720... don't forget a 360 runs at 720p max and a lot of games are even less namely the COD series. They really aren't that well optimized they just run at low resolutions and people who sit far away from their screens never notice. It is a major misconception that xbox's actually run games at 720p.

DX9 xbox games don't even challenge a good PC system. If you read the entire thread you would see that our problem is not with consoles because without them we would have a lot less games being produced. It's the fact that companies won't even put the effort in to making a higher end version that PC users can play.
