When Carmack speaks, I tend to listen. He knows more about the tech side of things than anyone else I've read about.
He is also right that the majority of the games business is driven by consoles. What that means exactly? I don't know, but maybe it means that unless you are a Crysis junkie, there isn't much reason to own a high-end boutique PC any more?
