"If a developer fucks up the code for their program, resulting in crashing, lag, bugs and more bugs, don't blame it on the platform. "
That wasn't my point. Would you rather have a game developed and tested on YOUR platform, or a game developed and tested on SOME platforms? That's the difference. A console is YOUR platform. You'll be lucky if they tested their game on a pc similar to yours (i.e. too many configurations).
I really don't want to get into the pc/console debate. I just want to buy a game and be able to play it without having to tweak, reboot, patch, etc, etc. The reason I mention the xbox is because xbox Live is so seamless... it's such wonderful thing for a gamer.
Just to let you know, I also own a top-of-the-line pc, a GC, and a PS2. I play xbox live more than anything.
