Honestly I fail to see how the pc mod scene can be in trouble here.

Can you make mods on a 360/PS3 ?

No this article only states that existing well established UT mods will be ported to the consoles, and most likely food for the microtransaction beast.

Wake me up when the 360 gets the ability to create content..
But I shudder at the thought of using a controller in photoshop, or worse yet 3d modeling software.

"As a lifelong PC-only gamer it's clear that the price/performance/value curve increasingly swings toward consoles."

I could agree more. After 20 years of gaming on PC's I jumped into the console pool with a 360 last year. Mainly because I'm in need of a whole new gaming rig from the ground up and didn't want to spen the cash until the whole DX10/Vista gaming thing worked out. I'm having a blast with the 360, but I sorely miss the depth of PC games. I'll upgrade and be back into it this year but sadly, I can see PC gaming slowly but surely become a niche market. Not right away, but I'd say that the next generation of consoles after this one just might do it because DAMN, games look purrty on a 60 inch HDTV in 1080i

Everyone in the industry except PC gamers has recognized for a few years now that the "flush money down the toilet every year to upgrade your PC" model of gaming is on the wane.

Ah, but console players have yet to realize that paying a monthly fee to play regular games online is stupid. And MMO players have yet to realize the stupidity of paying a monthly fee to play games that suck.

Though, I do agree that developers need to optimize their engines more.

Good. I hope PC gamers stop upgrading and force devs to improve the quality of their engines again, as id used to do. These days, games devs use DX as a crutch, to hide the shoddiness of their engines. Bloated garbage like BF2, etc.

But it's not that bad. Nvidia is even releasing DX10 AGP cards. Older hardware still works, despite what the motherboard-peddlers in Taiwan want you to think, and despite script kiddie game devs who don't really know how to code.

Don't upgrade to Vista yet either.

Oh it's in trouble because Epic wants to bring modding to Xbox360 and PS3. Pfft didn't Sony try that with the original playstation and it was an abysmal failure. Most console gamers are to young and uninterested in anything but flashy graphics and big weapons as it is.

The PC Mod scene isn't quite what it used to be sure, but it's hardly in trouble. Considering a serious number of the best PC mods have turned their enthusiast developers into professionals.
