PC gaming isn't being abandoned. "Hardcore" gaming is being abandoned. We still get the same shitty console games ported. Shitty game is a shitty game regardless the platform. Gaming generally is being abandoned.

As for the 8-10 times, I can see that... Current consoles came out like 300 years ago : )

Ehm... he is NOT saying that. He is saying that the EA guy who DID say that is spewing BS.

"These architectures are a generation ahead "

Architectures perhaps are a generation ahead, raw power is not. Meaning same procs on a pc and the consoles are better due to arch. But yeah real world is rubber on the road.

Well... this is one of the few times that I agree with him.

However, Mark Rein has said some ridiculous things about the new consoles too.

like for the PS4:
"It's like giving you the world's best PC"

Uh... Yeah. LOL

You know the bullshit is reaching mountainous levels if Mark Rein, of all people, has to say something nice about the PC.

I guess their plan is to just toss out a bunch of bullshit numbers and claims to get the console morons drooling over it, knowing that they'll be lined up around the block at release with cash in hand. Most console players probably have no idea what a PC can do anyway. They've just played Bejeweled on their laptop.

Did his check from microsoft bounce or something?

Did you read the article in question, here's a snippet:
These architectures are a generation ahead of the highest end PC on the market and their unique design of the hardware, the underlying operating system and the live service layer create one of the most compelling platforms to reimagine game mechanics. Our benchmarks on just the video and audio performance are 8-10 times superior to the current gen.
As you can see, complete B.S.
