have to agree with this 100%.
if you're serious about gaming, dont let yourself be constricted to a single platform. i dont see how the lower res textures and graphics can "hurt your eyes", unless just from an aesthetic point of view.
but there are console exclusive titles that definintely warrant the purchase of the machine. i also fail to understand to argument "i dont want to pay $300-$400 for one game". its only a one-time fee for the machine, a machine that does more than just play games too. but once that fee is paid, done. no more hardware upgrades required. the games are developed to accommodate the console hardware and they get better and better each time around. take a look at say, Resistance on PS3 vs Killzone 3 on PS3. same platform, nothing changed. yet those games are MILES apart from a technical standpoint, they dont even look like they share a platform.
i havnt looked into the new consoles much, but reading about the PS4, i honestly cant find a reason why i wouldnt buy one now, they look really, really promising.
im a die hard FPS fan, its always been my go-to genre. and the PC titles are great, but i have to say i actually enjoyed console exclusives like Resistance and Killzone and Halo much more, from a gameplay standpoint.
