@jenovaschilld: You make the mistake of lumping together all technology, plus some weird analogy about house bills, into the same pile as console gaming. Sometimes things exist to fulfil a niche, and consoles are one of those things. They are seen by many as something I can buy, plug in and get games for for 5+ years knowing their experience is going to be the same as everyone else's. By changing that single aspect of them you create questions about the product, the key one being 'is it still preferable to own a console, or am I better of getting a PC?' Even if only 25% of people decide it is enough to stop them buying consoles it is still a large enough chunk to lead to the demise of console gaming.I also look forward to the beginnings of people getting angry that they play a game online at 25-30fps against people who are playing it at 60fps meaning they are, effectively, second class citizens in an area of the market that has never had that problem before.We've had E3 now and have heard that all Xbox in-house exclusives will also be released on PC, given both use the same architecture now on top of the same operating system their is no reason why they would be released in any state worse than the console version. Sony have been experimenting with streaming technologies and have only not pushed them to the forefront so far as they know most people's internet is not up to the task yet. You are right that the market evolves over time, but in this case I would say the market is evolving to remove the need of consoles and this is going to be a push to make as much money as possible before this end comes.
