Blizzard smart to produce a game that can be played on more than one platform. Expose the awesomeness of D3 to more people!
Next up, D3 for tablets and smartphones!
To be honest, the PC is sorta dying. Look at every electronic store and go the personal computer section. What do you see? Laptops, smart phones, tablets, "notebooks", and PC's that are so small you would second guess them being desktop PC's to begin with. The big bulky machines of the 1990's and 2K's are becoming an endangered species. Sure you'll still need them for super heavy number crunching or for 3D design. But PC gaming of the future will be on smartphones and tablets.

You couldn't be more wrong, I guarantee within the next 10 years you'll hardly see anybody with a PC, especially a desktop. Everything will be on consoles in your living room, or on a tablet/phone. Not just for gaming either.
It's only a matter of time.

Huge difference between sales and current active player base.
When profit for most video games is front loaded at release, it is rather irrelevant if people continue playing or not.

Well, so far it did quite well and there is no real sign that this will change. Infact the consoles have been pretty stagnant for the last years and the new PS4 doesnt seem to be THAT amazing either, at least the representation wasnt. It doesnt offer anything which the PC cant do, in some cases the PC was and will be better (see multiplayer, crowd funding projects, modifications, free2play games etc.).It is not consoles that are killing the PC gaming platform.
Both PCs and Consoles are being killed by mobile games. It is simple as that.
