I used to play on PC... now I play on console, because I don't care enough to invest in a gaming PC. Which controller setup is clearly more difficult to use? I used to snipe all the time on PC, don't even bother to really try with a console controller.
What may be true is the following: The cost of entry for PC gaming means that you have less "casual" gamers in the population, and that means you have less weak players to take advantage of. I bought the same argument in XBOX v. PS3 arguments because XBOX users had to pay to play online, whereas with PS3 anyone who owned the game could randomly show up at any time.
That, however, is very different from what you are suggesting, and this idea that mouse/keyboard is far more difficult is... honestly, you're the first person that plays a lot of FPS that I have ever seen make that argument. One of the primary arguments for transitioning to PC gaming is how much better it is to play with mouse/keyboard. There was a huge kerfuffle in the COD community a few years back when they came out with the peripheral mouse/keyboard for PS3 (and I think XBOX 360) because it would lead to an unfair advantage for anyone that splurged.
