How many of those people didn't buy a new console as well due to the lack of new games coming for PS2... I know I had an xBox which is better than the PS2 in every way but now with such a lack of support I bought a Wii..

For certain reasons I would agree with you.

But on another note, the PC gaming industry needs to take a page from their books.

MAKE BETTER CODE to work with the current hardware.

DONT design your coding, so that it is dependent on the most BLEEDING EDGE technology..

I think consoles have their place, but it is unfortunate that PC gaming has to be held back because the technology advancements take longer to reach the consumer with consoles. Nvidia could put out 10 new cards inbetween console generations. And if gaming companies lag with the slow, staggered advancement of consoles, we PC gamers will be held back.
isnt it still cheaper?....also...LONG LIVE CONSOLES!!!

Gawd, why do I feel like there's a PC vs. console argument every five frickin minutes on these forums...

I was making the same point as this article down in the gaming forums a week or two ago, actually. Nobody liked to hear it then, apparently no one likes to hear it now.

One major difference is computers are upgradable.

You don't have to throw them out you can replace a few components and keep on gaming. All the AGP users are clear evidence of that.
Yes, PCs are upgradable...but if you're honest about it, the PC gamers who actively do that sort of thing spend a fair amount of money on their hobby. Cripes, a mid-range video card costs as much as a Wii; and a high-end video card, the one you probably want to upgrade to if you're serious about this, is as much as a PS3. And let's not forget about the inevitable march of recommended RAM, it seems like we need to add another gig or two every two years.

So again, this was a point I was making somewhere else a week or two ago: the argument that you have to replace a console every five years, and that PCs are better because you can upgrade them instead, is a complete straw man. Most "real" PC gamers replace the main components of their PC every few years, probably at a more rapid pace and at greater expense than pure console gamers.
