You also have to remember, consoles are a lot cheaper. For $400 you get a gaming system you never have to upgrade, never gets low framerates, never crashes, never needs any type of configuration, and lets you play with 3 other people at once while 10 others watch.
|If you want 4 people to play a PC game you need 4 computers and a switch - and the cheapest brand-name computer that has a hope of playing games (you know, for the people not on this site ) is gonna run them about $1000. And on top of that, they will most likely need a technician to come over to their house and setup their network because they have no idea how. But some games still won't work because that technician didn't think that they'd need the IPX protocol installed.|
