The problem is that they aren't converging in the middle. 'Convergence' suggests that you should be getting games that are 50% PC style and 50% console style. People are pissed off because they're getting 15% PC and 85% console.
Hmm. Games released on consoles do often feel like they've been dragged massively towards console. But consoles have been dragged massively towards PC too. Halo is the iconic console shooter but say 2 years before it's release it'd have been unthinkable as a console game. Shit, just having online MP made it 85% PC.

Fallout 3? Sure it's "consolised", but to a console gamer who'd played on a friend's PC once or twice, it's a thoroughbred PC game.

The issue is, at least to us PC gamers, console games have benefited from some of the increased depth and complexity that was normal on PC, while PC games with console releases often feel restricted and dumbed-down.
