Hilarious how you provide nothing to back up your statements, and yet the facts laugh in your face at how wrong you are. 5400 rpm doesn't cut it. Sorry.

You typed a three line troll, it's not like there was much there to work with. The spindle rate of the drive has little correlation to the visuals, slow drives manage just fine with a cache and platter density is just as important, not to mention other factors. If you had talked about the APU instead you might have had a point but even then after seeing barely "next gen" footage of many upcoming games I don't really see how its detrimental to developers or gamers at the moment. This type of stuff matters a lot more down the road when developers are hitting the limits of the hardware but that's years away. For some perspective Rockstar managed GTA 5 with consoles having less than a gigabyte of memory, they now have 8GB. The limits of development these days are more related to budget than to hardware constraints.

Also just FYI most of the people buying a console at launch are core consumers, the casuals tend to come later with lower prices. I think the only exception to that in the past decade was the Wii. There's also many gamers here who own both a console and a gaming PC because the consoles get many exclusive games they deem worthwhile. The more you know!
