Yeah, it's interesting because everything he's saying is less true now than when the 360 launched.

I have no proof of this, but I get the impression that dual-GPU PCs are less common. Water-cooled PCs are less common. In general PC gamers aren't building the ridiculously powered systems they did in the past because it just doesn't matter as much, as everyone here keeps saying. Plus the price of parts has fallen, anyway, so a $2000 PC is far less common and you have to struggle to make a $3000 PC (excluding monitor.)

As some of you have mentioned, I wonder how much of his comments are due to the new Xbox, and possibly new PS, being largely off-the-shelf (so was the original Xbox, but...)
