I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned this yet, but game controllers don't offer the same options as a keyboard/mouse. Every game I play has more buttons being used than any controller I've ever seen, not to mention that gaming without hotkeys is less than stellar. Another thing that sucks, although it's gotten much better, is that consoles have competing titles that aren't available on every console. With a pc, you can play any game created for it. With a console, you have to hope that the title makes it to your particular machine. Lastly, you guys keep mentioning the price point at being $300 to $400 and that's not entirely accurate. Most consoles are only current for a year before a newer machine is released. Good luck buying the newest machine for under $400 at release time Sure, you can wait and let the price settle down, but now you have less time before your machine goes in the closet and you're buying a new one.
