I agree.

I think there is a big market for both, really. Less for PC, but still big, and they're both here to stay.

I have no reason to believe that either is ever going to go "dead" in the overall gaming industry.

It's not going to die in 10 years, you wanna know why? Cause its easy and cheap. someone said earlier," you can build a game rig for 500". while that may be true, how many people do you think actually know what the hell a computer tower is? Ive had people call it the modem and the router before. I don't see console gaming go no where in hat time frame but up.

consoles dont have the problem of guess work when it comes to figuring out what will and will not work. You're promised that once you take that game out of the plastic, its 100% compatible with the console unless you got the RROD or the YLOD(yellow light of death ps3) or you got a bad copy. other then that, the simplicity of console games is goin no where

I really doubt consoles are going to die in 10 years. Let's be real, there are more people who can afford a $400 console then there are people who can afford a $1200 gaming computer. Consoles are geared towards the casual gamer more then anything, and whether you guys want to admit it or not, there are more casual gamers then hardcore. Consoles are more profitable for companies and consoles in general just have too much going for them to just disappear in 10 years.

I had a gaming computer but I decided to get a 360 instead. It's much cheaper considering I don't have to update my computer and pay for overpriced parts just to be able to max out the latest games in a high res. I prefer paying $400 for a console that will last me 5 years opposed to spending at a minimum $1000 to keep up with changing technology.
For your health!

But everyone can afford the even low end 600 dollar 37" LCD to go along with their 400 dollar console and 50 dollar a piece controllers??

A DECENT console setup with a PS3, 2 controllers and well say 2 games to get you started with a low end television is going to run you 1200 bucks.

Consoles are good for the casual games, hell I have a 360 with quite a few games. But if the controller style games start showing up on PC, ill snatch up a superior Logitech or Saitek controller for PC and game on a superior setup that essentially cost the same as my console setup.

*just a debate - I don't mean harm by it *

AS for the 1000 dollars to keep up with a 5 year console cycle just look at my post above.
I have put 235 dollars in my 5 year old Athlon 64 system to update the GFX card in the last 5 years and it still maxes every game out there aside from Crysis of course.

With falling hardware prices in the PC realm its hard to deny.

In ten years nVidia would be on their 19th series of GPUs.

I'd hardly call that "Soon".

Consoles are the master race for racers and rpg's.

Consoles aren't going anywhere, but they will become more like computers... like you can swap a hdd in the PS3, you may one day be able to swap gpu's, cpu's, etc.... A console that doesn't go obsolete as often because it can be physically upgraded... that's why PS3's firmware update for BluRay 2.0 is teh kick ass...

Forgive me if I am wrong but last time I checked, when you can swap out GPUs, CPUs, Ram, etc. you were dealing with a PC.

The main caveat of PC gaming is the fact that not everyone has the know how to do these things. If consoles started doing these things then they have officially become a PC and this article is true.

If you can swap out parts fully on a console then it loses console status and becomes a PC. By the time you can do these things with a console they will cost 700-1000 dollars for the console alone and you will be able to build a gaming PC for cheaper.
