It is good to see this, but let's face it: Many PC gamers have been doing this for years. In fact with a decent gaming laptop (albeit more $$$), you can do this, store all your movies, music, and have freedom from corporate nonsense that is inherent in consoles.
Not only that but you can easily pickup your gaming laptop and take a fully functioning game machine with you where-ever you go.
As an old, old gamer, I've never understood the whole console concept anyway. And with this latest iteration from the corporate giants, consoles seem even less appealing.
