As PC improvements become more expensive and slows to a crawl. Console to become more attractive?
Some deem the One X already so good with its package for $ 399 compared to PC. Next gen seems to be rumored at around $ 499 with even a much larger improvement in hardware package compared to PC.
Perhaps the recent Zens are/will be simply an anomaly and the PS4/X1's jaguar was just too **** that will exaggerate the leap in price to performance gains next round.
Tech in general has been becoming quite expensive and improvements are slower than before but the consoles has a wild card of possibly eating a substantial amount of cost for pushing hardware to consumers but as an initial loss of $ from Nintendo/Sony/MS.
PS3 = $ 200-300 loss / unit.
PS4 = "no loss"
PS5 = rumored $ 100?
Then again, there might not be much of a difference since the next generation hardwares won't really be immune to the price hike of tech in general.
