And sure a good game PC may be more expensive, but its upgradeable to suit the changing techologies, the games can be modded, the online environment is not controlled by MS online, or Sony online etc. Plus factor in the cost of a high def TV, extra controllers etc and the cost are about the same.
Yes, but you're in denial about one little fact there. A PC is an ever changing platform that requires more money to thrown at it to keep up to date and playing the latest games exceptionally. An HDTV and console are one time purchases. You commit once, you're done. As for the online environments being freer on the PC...well, there are advantages and disadvantages to that.
I'm not saying PC gaming is dead, but it's definitely gotten to haughty for it's own purposes.
