Enjoy your low res textures made severely worse by your massive tv.

1280x720 on a 42" tv using a poor control system with an inferior version of the game in terms of both content and visuals? no thanks.

lost? Every major innovation on your console has come from the PC and I say that as someone who got his first console at the age of 4 and as someone who owns every console of this generation, excluding the PS3, which I intend to pick up soon.

Your console is a mini PC with less functionality.

The fact that you haven't rebutted a single point of mine, and merely shifted your argument each time, suggests that you know this.

For christ's sake, everything with a microchip and conductor is essentially a computer minus the peripherals. Altough it used different architecture and different media, the N64 was just a game playing computer, nothing more.

There is a market for people who want to, mostly, sit alone in their offices and play games on their powerful computers with fantastic graphics. And those who want to play WOW and strategy games.

There is also a market for people who like more social connectivity to exist with their games (be it RockBand or Halo). PC gaming is great for games that need mouse and keyboard. But for everything else, consoles are the way to go.

There is a social stigma attached to playing "computer games" as compared to games on a 360 or PS3. Few people, beside the truly geeky, would ever hook their gaming rig up to their primary tv to play games. It is unreasonable to compromise the degree of aesthetic pleasure and ease of use of a console simply for the better graphics and user content on the PC.

That is not to say some games don't shine particularily bright on the PC, since they do. But lets face it... in 20 years time what are we going to have beneath our tvs? A small, aesthetically pleasing box that is in essence a computer, but still a console... or a hub for an off-site streaming gaming network. Either or.
