blackssr I am with you on the PC stuff. If you had the money, it was a great time for gaming back when software pushed the limits of PC hardware. But like you said, those days are gone, brother. Money is what makes the world go round, and the console masses are where its at due solely because they are just that, masses. Now I will say this - My hope is that the next generation consoles will incorporate 2 things: 1080P resolution gaming (which definitely will be the standard on the next gen consoles), and, I pray, the incorporation of a mouse and keyboard interface. Then, I can say, I just might do some serious console gaming. I think if the next gen consoles did this, then it would really get a lot of the PC guys like me more into the consoles. I am not totally anti-console. Hell, I currently own a PS3 and Xbox 360. Back in the day, I owned a poop load of consoles. Panasonic 3DO, Atari Jaguar, Sega Genesis and 32X, Nes, Super Nes, Gamecube, Dreamcast, original Xbox, all of the Playstations (including the slim), blah blah blah. I have also been an avid PC gamer. My first PC that I bought as an adult was an AlienWare back in 1999. That bitch had the original Scan Live Interleave (SLI) setup alah 3DFX. Paid almost $4000 for it, and that included a 22 inch Viewsonic CRT which was $1200 of that cost. Even though the console masses have slowed the tech development of PC gaming, you still can't get me away from PC gaming. And that is mostly because the games I love to play are the ones that use a proper mouse and keyboard and I like the 1080P res. Nothing a HTPC gaming rig and 60" 1080P plasma can't solve.
