Seems to me he is saying that no console ever could match a "nuclear power plant" level extreme special built PC in terms of raw power. He isn't really putting down the consoles at all, just talking about where his company is aiming vs where the mainstream is aiming. If you can afford to aim further ahead into the future then that might be a good strategy. Console makers cannot afford to do this as they don't want to take a loss on their hardware for too long. Personally I am excited for both the PC space and the console space now that gaming is becoming more accepted in general.

I am not too sure that what he is really saying at least completely. Sure he did mention high-end systems but the average PC has at least ten times the processing power of a console. For a console to stay competitive they have to increase to that scale as well. The Xbox to Xbox360 is the kind of jump in performance we need see.

He kept mentioning the NDA and that the consoles can't match the PC its not hard to put two and two together. Between the lines it seems we are probably likely to get an improvement but probably a modest one.
