I def think you're getting your money's worth buying a PS4 today. I'm just not sure that it's going to hold up as well as the 360/PS3 did for 6-8 years.
that I agree with. as an example most ppl already have PC's, so it's usually cheaper to upgrade the computer they already have.
I'm sure I could turn my HTPC into a competitive game machine for 400ish(would need a better PS, and gpu to start).
for me, there's still an appeal to having a 'standard' experience. I can play at home or a friends and it's the same. kind of like the chain restaurant vs a good one. when I'm travelling, I end up at mcd's more often because at least I know what I'm going to get, it's the same as the mcd's at homes.
that also means when I suck at online gaming, it's because I suck, not because I'm too cheap to run triple monitors, or buy a competition grade controllers specifically designed for the game, etc. even those pc gaming has become more user friendly, it's still not really 'casual' enough for my tastes.
