Actually, they better because it is the coolest name possible, and I will only buy one if it has a cool name. It's like Bulldozer. If AMD called it Bulldozer, I\\d buy - but FX, forget it, I'll stick with something with a cool name...

If that's the case, why don't you go out and buy an 8800 Ultra? After all, if it has a way higher numbered than the 580/590/6990/6970 AND has "Ultra" in the title, it must be better, going by your logic? (/*sarcasm*)

Missed out the sarcasm tag.

This, only I'd probably get it even if it wasn't called the 720.

If consoles had more customization options (keybinds/tweaks) and full support for kb/mouse I would make hook them up to my monitor and consider playing competitively on them.

There's no doubt in my mind that PC platform the best customizable and graphical experience, but the truth is that consoles are basically the ultimate gaming platform in many ways.

They're harder to cheat on since you can't really alter the files without hacking the system itself, which often leads to bans anyways.

Consoles basically force developers to optimize software. They're bottle-necked by the consoles limited hardware and there's basically no need to ever upgrade. They're the best investment ever for gaming.

Pay a flat fee of 300-600 dollars and have no need to upgrade for 5-7 years. What a joke.

I don't think consoles will ever fully support kb/mouse though due to the fact that it would completely throw off balance. For that reason I will never play console FPS.

FPS on controller is just not natural at all for me. I was born and raised on quake series and would never take that experience back.

I think that KB and Mouse support for a console is outside its scope, a console, IMHO, is a system you put in your living room, something you can easily switch on and off and have a great time with.

Although optional KB/Mouse support could be appreciated, I think we all have a PC for high accuracy FPS gameplay.

You have to look forward to game shows every 5-10 years for new hardware.
