I agree completely (although i probably wouldn't use that analogy.) Recently my gaming laptop got fried in an accident. While i save up for my first gaming desktop (been PC gaming on laptops for the last 8 years) i bought a PS3 to play a few exclusive games like Red Dead Redemption, LBP, Uncharted 2 and other games like Black Ops and as i tried to quench my gaming needs all i could think of while playing them was 'this game would feel so much better on PC'.
Plus some games are just blatently suitable for PC's. Just take the fps genre as an example. You even mention 'dedicated servers' and most console gamers won't even know the definition of it (no one here of course )
It's not a matter of being elitist, it's just fact. It's like someone going to a fine dining expensive restaurant and someone else going to McDonalds -both will fill you up but one is clearly of higher standards and quality. Just apply that analogy to this.

Now wait a minute. What about the pc owners whose budget is extremely low? Are they the alley cats behind the fancy restaurant in this analogy?

nope. all pc gamers are brothers in arms. regardless of the quality of your system. you have seen the light, and you know it is good. whether you can afford to see the light in all its goodness or not is irrelevant.

Nah, they'd be the people who go to that restaurant with everyone else and just order a cheap entrée or side as their meal as its cheaper.

The consoles have good CPUs that can keep up with modern ones we use bar maybe the 980X, Sandy Bridge and Bulldozer, the GPUs can't keep up as well and the RAM? Well, the machine I got back in 2004 came wtih 1GB RAM for the system (Xbox has 512MB shared with the GPU) and 512MB RAM for the GPU
