ATI's graphic solution for the 360 is, however, easily on par with the X1800 or Geforce 7800 series.
And let's not forget that that one of those video cards cost as much (or more) than the ENTIRE Xbox 360 system.
Software developers aren't killing PC gaming, ATI and NVIDIA are. Who the fuck can afford $1000 for a proper gaming rig? And $1000 is assuming you already have a decent monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers.
$500 for a video card is just retarded. The idiots who run out and pay that kind of money for a video card just invite ATI and Nvidia to continue to push those products.
If I can take a Xbox 360, plug in USB devices like my camera, have use of a keyboard, and can output to DVI to work with a proper monitor...who needs a PC? I'll gladly stop the $300-$400 yearly upgrades necessary to have a good gaming PC as SOON AS I CAN.
And I guarantee I have been PC gaming for far longer than most of you.
