If DirectX was one of the poorest APIs to use I don't think every single AAA developer would port their games to PC through it.

Direct X also includes APIs for Sound, etc.

Thats because MS basically forced DX into being the standard, the AAA developers didn't have a choice. With MS' overwhelming market share lead in the PC OS market what developer would develop only for the smaller apple/*nix crowd?

After this generation the LAST thing MS wanna come at Sony with is graphics. Halo just started looking current gen at Halo 4 last year.

Killzone 2 an older game still looks better and won more best graphics.
