Add in the cost of an xbox $399-479 (release day) and we are already up to $1000. Next add in all the accessories overpriced games and the PC starts looking good. I would also like to mention most people I know have multiple consoles, so lets add in the price of a PS3 and Wii and we have a grand total of $1850.
Before the upgrading computer issue comes up I will knock it down by saying this. I can build a computer right now that can game pretty well for $600-800 and throw $200-300 at it every 3 years and still be ahead.
You forgetting the fact that if you want to enjoy your games on that said console you will need to shell out some serious cash for a good TV, in the end, the price to build a 1200 PC breaks ever, but with PC you get things like anti aliasing, and other settings, and most times can turn off that BLUR, BLUR BLUR and in place resolutions console players get.
Console players just mad cause PC is styling on them, at all times.
