Indeed.


@Topic, You gotta love how Games are optimized for those devices and how bad they run as ports. Or hate.

Folding is a wonderful use of one's hardware and I applaud those that dedicate their resources to it, but in the context of a gaming system it isn't very relevant. Nor is overclocking or benchmarking. The hardware is static and, for the most part, plays games at similar resolutions and "settings" at an acceptable 30 FPS.

and in saying that my 1080p monitor produces better picture quality then my aunts samsung plasma 52" tv and her 50" panasonic lcd tv so i will stick with my 21.5" monitor

Lolwut? PC gamers use the fact that PC's are much more powerful in every single argument.

Edit: In fact, didn't the 360's CPU only just recently shrink to 45 nm with the slim version?

The problem isn't the hardware by any means. And I am going out on a limb here, I dare say even a console gamer will admit (grudgningly) that pc hardware is superior to console hardware. (flame suit on). The devs can easily code for a console if the hardware specs, year after year don't really change until a new console comes out. PCs on the other hand have a myriad of choices and devs have to code for what is essentially a hodge podge of different gear and machines with different levels of performance and still make the game look good.
The hardware also comes down to the controllers themselves. Yes, there is the age old controller vs keyboard/mouse camp. And the whole arguement about which is actually better. IT is a matter of choice folks. What feels better for you and your playstyle. But lets back off a moment and look at what a console is supposed to be.
Back in the coin-op days, where video game arcades ruled, and playing games with your friends was a matter of heading down to "Flynn's", popping quarters and having a good time is where the modern console was born. No arcade game that I recall had a keyboard, and only a few had any controls that even resembles a mouse in function. They let you mill around the machine with your friends and take turns at the controls.
The consoles of that time came about to bring the feel of the video arcade home to the living room. A function that they continue to serve to this day. "Flynn's Arcade" is gone now, most arcade are sadly, but the console, the by-product of that era lives on and continues to bring the excitement and social aspects of the arcade home to the living room.
The PC for all it's power and ability will never really recreate that feeling. It is all about customization and personalizing it, to make the machine not only truly your own but to let you wring out the most of your skill and your hardware. The keyboard and mouse are fine tuned to you and your particular playstyle, strengths and weaknesses. The console, you pass the controller to your friend, and at most they may change the button layout on the controller, but the console, except for putting a custom grfx on the casing is really not customized for how you play, it is about social and a happy medium, where everyone plays on the same hardware essentially with little difference between it all.

IMO, play what feels right to you on what feels right to you. As GAMERS, both PC and CONSOLE, lets stop the stupidity already. It isn't about the hardware. It's about the games. Let's stand up as ONE VOICE, and demand that games are coded properly for the platform that it is being played on. I have seen Console Ports that are horrendously done. I have seen PC ports just as horribly done. All in the name of saving a buck. And who suffers? The Devs? The Publishers? No. We, the Gamers do. But we are too busy fighting each other over which is better to unite against they who truly make our gaming experience less than it should be.

Best post I've read over this dumb topic. Nice reference to Tron aswell.

You can use PC monitors with current generation consoles so the display argument is invalid (PS3 via HDMI, Xbox 360 via HDMI or VGA).

Also when I look at some of the rigs in this very thread the whole price point argument just makes me laugh. Could you build a PC that beats out a console in terms of performance for the same price? Yes maybe. Would you? That's a completely different story. I find alot of PC gamers want to get the most out of their systems, and always end up upgrading them over time. I know for certain I do.

This thread makes no sense. You go from breaking a PS2, to buying a P4/x1300 to saying no one realizes the power PCs have. At least provide some relevant commentary that would give us a clue as to how you're connecting these in your head.
