So I'll hold true to my original comment that you don't know what sensationalism means, nor do you know what indefinitely means.
PR nonesense or not, they gave a time frame. Hopefully within a week, is a time frame in which they are aiming for. So it is not indefinite as they have an ETA. Now get off my butt and go bug someone else.

i pc gamed a lot until i bought a 47 inch HDTV and a nice surround sound system, now it is hard for me to sit down in front of a monitor and keyboard to play.

plus, i will argue that xbox live provides a better structure for gaming with strangers than steam does. MW2 was unplayable for me on PC but i love it on xbox

Why couldn't you get a nice triple 30" setup with surround sound as well? No one says you have to play on a tiny 15" with cheapo desktop speakers.

I recently purchased a 42" HDTV and did away with my eyefinity setup. Very amazing to see this thing in action as a monitor. A bit difficult to get use to, but once you do it rapes anything. I play my consoles on it too, only the games I can't get on PC like MK and sports games, and man do they look like crap compared to PC games.

i have a ps3, xbox 360 and wii and 2 full desktops and 1 laptop plus 2 tablets. To me, xbox 360 is the one system i really have fun playing on out of all the consoles. Better experience than any other console. Yes, xbox has alot of kids on it, you know what, so does ps3 but xbox has 10X the amount of people on it that actually have headsets. Cannot count the number of times i have turned off my ps3 because no one had a mic on a 40+ person server, only to log into xbox live and within mins be on a 8 man server of GoW with 4+ people that have mics. Its not all about graphics, its about the experience. my ps3 is used for some Frisbee golf and watching movies, my 360, i actually play games on it. People on here talk about how the graphics are all crap on consoles..well you know what, those same people *****ing about graphics are playing CSS, one of the worst graphical games to date. game has so many bugs its not funny, yet there bashing consoles? lol. Dont get me wrong, i love CSS, but to complain about consoles when you play CSS is absurd.

Then you're an idiot (offence intended.)

The PS3 has some quality titles. Resistance, Uncharted, MGS 4 (single best game I have ever played), Ratchet and Clank, Heavy Rain, Gran Turismo and loads more.

The PS3 is just as good as the 360. They both have quality titles that shouldn't be missed out on. Which is exactly why I'm calling you an idiot right now, because that fanboy attitude goes against the fact that you're meant to be a gamer who appreciates a game irrespective of the platform. I couldn't give a rats whether I'm holding a PS3 controller, an Xbox 360 controller or a mouse & keyboard, just as long as the game is fun I will keep on smiling. Have fun limiting your own selection of games whilst I enjoy them all.

This might single handedly be the best post you've ever created. The Hypocrisy of the "PC Gamer" elite is alarming. Remember back in the day when you said you were a "Gamer," it meant you played video games? Remember when it had nothing to do with what system you played games on?

Yeah, those were the good ol' days.

If he has any conscience, he should be thinking, "what have I started?"
