The 360 was at least as, if not more, powerful than PCs at launch. Inevitably they surpassed it, but at launch they could hold their own just fine.
CPU wise, maybe. Memory wise and GPU wise, it was outdated the moment it came out. The GPU was already a generation behind at that point, and the memory has always been pathetic, even from the moment they started talking about it.
That no games really USED any of the available power (either in the PC or the 360), I won't deny, but saying the 360 was more powerful is crazy.
The 360's GPU was a generation above any PC GPU when it came out, and there wasn't a SINGLE PC GPU on the market that matched its features for a full YEAR.
The memory, I'll give you.
Saying the 360 wasn't more powerful is crazy and proves your ignorance on the subject.
