Hell, FireFox right now is taking up 76% of my RAM (I maybe should close some tabs.) Consoles don't have issues like that.
That's not how memory management works. Overhead is not an issue with PCs for the most part and if the operating system needed that ram it would page out or take it. PC operating systems also aggressively cache and make effective use of memory. The console doesn't have it to offer in the first place. Working within memory constraints was one of the most annoying parts of development.
