Doesn't make it the most sold though. That would be The Sims. Followed by The Sims 2. And then World of Warcraft. Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the second most sold game on Xbox 360, and the third on the Playstation 3, with Call of Duty 4 also making the top twenty for PS3, and sixth for 360. Even World at War is in the Xbox 360's top ten best selling. Meanwhile, none of them have broke 1,000,000 sales for the PC yet.

Source is Wikipedia. Here's the PC list, Xbox 360 list and Playstation 3 list. They need updating, but you get the picture.

No matter if it plays better on the PC or not (depending on who you ask and their opinion on it, I personally do find the PC version more playable.), more people choose to buy it for a console, and therefore, its generally considered a console game. I'd say that's perfectly fair.

Except it wasn't and the first game was only released for PC and Mac (And N-Gage apparently), before being updated for HD release over the Arcade and PSN Store. Either way, it started off a PC Game. It eventually turned into a console game, but it was, at first, PC.
