My thoughts exactly, I don't think it was surprising that the very next day alienware announced a new entry level pc gaming machine.
Having said that, I'm growing more and more disturbed with the lack of PC games on the store shelves, particularly EB and Gamestop. Some of my local stores don't even keep PC games on the shelves, you have to ask them to get you a game from the back.
I own all three next gen consoles but I still keep my PC as my primary gaming machine. Does make me a bit worried though when I see how many games have had their hearts ripped out just so they could be put on a console; Rainbow six and COD in particular. Just makes me wonder where PC gaming will be 5-10 years from now.
Thats my 2 cents.
