The anti-console argument seems to suppose that if there were no consoles, every console gamer would have a high end gaming PC, which seems like a grievously flawed premise. Without the console base, the sales base would be cut in half (being generous). How many PC-only games have pushed the limits of hardware? Witcher 2 is going to the 360. Maybe Civilization 5? Or Diablo 3 or Starcraft 2? It seems more likely that without the consoles providing additional income streams, there would just be less games period and the bar would be lowered all the way down to Facebook games and whatever Blizzard puts out.

Like, take a random smartphone that's arguably better than the iPhone. You couldn't really say that if the iPhone never existed then the millions of iPhone users would all be on this better phone, and apps would be better than what we have now because of the superior hardware. It's much more likely that there would be fewer app developers and less interest overall in that market.
