In any case, I do agree graphics matter. New consoles will energize the market again with greater visuals and larger areas. I just don't think the high-end PC market matters much in the grand scheme of, well, anything. It's a niche within a niche.

You seem to be making two different arguments in an effort to poop on the PC, one based on sales and another based on capabilities. Of course high end hardware matters, without it BF3 and Crysis 2 might not have existed in their current forms. Many developers are starting out with the high end and scaling down to consoles, its an approach that works really well. The trouble now is that the low end of the market is 6+ years old and things can't move forward without new console hardware. The whole thing is a rubber band and we've been at the breaking point for awhile now.

So yes, new console hardware will help alleviate the current situation but no, the high end hardware market is far from insignificant as there is much more than raw unit sales to consider. Most high end hardware stays that way a year at most before moving into the larger market at better prices anyway.
