Uhm, there's TONNES of addon's for Xbox, wireless cards (old xbox, but still alot are kicking around), typing bads, extra controllers (they run $70......) etc.

I guarantee you most people have 2-4 controllers, not just one. That's like $150 in controllers that cost $4 to make. Plus Xbox live, headsets, etc

Pc gaming is most likely cheaper in the long run as long as you don't impulse buy all the games on their release date. I still remember the 4th of july sale on steam. Dear god games were cheap.

But there are plenty of console games that won't make their way to the pc unfortunately. If you're going to be strictly a pc gamer, you really miss out on some great titles.

True, like of course Gears of War. When I sold my Xbox for that new PSU, I almost cried

FTFY...

I have a ps3, 360, Wii AND PC. And you know what? Each has its respectable qualities. PC gaming is graphically superior (and it has mods and the like) but there are some games that just don't belong on PC...

consoles are for people who:
A) dont game enough to warrant a splash out on a system that can run a game an xbox can.
B) dont like mouse + keyboard arrangement
C) dont know what theire talking about.

im 17 and it was only christmas time i actually made the "custom pc" investment...

my PS3 blackops is still in the wrapper.
