    Looking at 'console vs PC' from a fanboy standpoint is stupid. As if the fan base is segregated and not the same gamers. Everyone is a potential gamer and customer.Stupid also to combine these "consol...

    @1fragleftYes, the Xbox was PC as well, but the 360 caused the shift. It was really a war of ideology, and Sony and Nintendo both abandoned the "console" hardware mentality and fell in line with PC me...

    What is called "console" gaming died last gen with Wii and ps3. "Consoles" are now sff walled-garden PCs. MS caused the convergence with the Xbox 360 and missed their own train with the X1.PC is alway...

    Funny list. No id games at all? Commander keen, Wolfenstein, Doom, Quake. No StarCraft or Warcraft. SC2000, Baldurs Gate, UT99. Any top 10 not including NOLF is pretty shit anyway.

    Sony did a good job with ps4. Its small, sleek, and still has internal PSU. It's powerful for $400 and easy to develope for. Sony exclusives will run 1080p for the most and look great.

    They offer x86 development and more indie-friendly policy. In that sense, more stability and greater variety.

    @mikhail: Requiring net connection and full installation doesn't sound open to me. No renting. Having fragmented game library ie steam orgin. Not freeing.Having to spec a system on your own and even a...
