Dragon Age Origins with all the DLC is awesome on the 360.

Hah no it's not. Go play it on the PC and tell me the 360 version measures up in any way. If you can stomach playing a vastly inferior version of a product then fine, it's your money. Dragon Age was a questionable 360 port and the PC version has actual features it doesn't possess plus the ability to use mods amongst other things.

Some of us like to see parity in multi-platform products. Generally speaking if there is no difference between versions then who cares? Buy it on whatever platform you want. But if the console version is worse or the PC version is worse because of the consoles then I think people are reasonably justified in being upset about it.

I hope we see more of this on the consoles. I love games with this much depth.

Actually if you read up on Dragon Age 2 they are taking a large shit on most of that depth and "streamlining" the experience significantly. It's pretty much the perfect example of why people get upset about "consolization". Publishers don't look at that game's success and say "geez we should make more games like this, obviously people want them!". Instead they look at it and say "How can we dumb this down to sell as many copies as possible?".
