yeah, that's not true either..
The current generation of gaming consoles has been out a while, and is only about half way through it's lifespan.
The amount of software updates they're receiving, especially this year, is incredible.
The thing is, the technology behind PC games won't surpass console gaming because game developers won't let it.
Games are made are made to cater to console technology, and any game that surpasses it, is likely to be shelved until console tech catches up.
All about the market..
... uhhh... have you seen crysis? theres a reason its not out for xbox or playstation. games are made to cater to console technology my ass. keyboard and mouse far surpasses the precision, vast amount of on the fly hot keys, control, communication abilities, versatility and familiarity of a controller. i dont understand why it isnt easier to get a keyboard and mouse for xbox or ps3, hell navigating through the stupid menus just to change a few settings or invite a friend into a game is a pain in the ass. pc technology and hardware has been ahead of consoles for every major console release since the sony playstation.
also i only spent $186 dollars to turn my medium-high end 2006 computer into a medium-high end 2010 computer about 4 months ago. not a bad deal, especially considering u save money on games (unless its starcraft 2) and everyone on here ALREADY HAS A COMPUTER. not to mention how easy it is to get emulators and ROMs, some of those old games are tons of fun (and you cant beat free). finally, look at everything else your computer can do that your console cant (or can do in limited fashion). fully functional media center, cd/dvd burner, port for mp3 player, web surfer, email checker, weather, calenders, sticky notes, etc etc etc. hell now that i think about it, the only use i really have for my xbox is super street fighter 4.
is madden 11 worth 70 bucks? doubt it, but that shouldnt stop people from getting it. hell i was dumb enough to get suckered into getting madden 10 and modern warfare 2 (AND one of those map packs).
