Worth Buying an XBox360 on Black Friday?

Game systems used to be upgraded because tech advances could make the graphics significantly better. That's not the case anymore and graphics are less important to gamers now than they used to be, so why bother pushing out a new product?
All the money is in games. Sony and MS would be better off putting their resources towards game development.

It's the way it's heading. the question is if we will see it go this way this gen or next.

well it's bound to happen at some point!
People have been saying the end to PC gaming has been coming for 10 years now....
On a real note it will happen as soon as someone incorporates a pc playing mechanics into a console, MS has already taken steps in that direction.
Gaming companies want larger markets to take their product to and console companies want to expand market size.
It's bound to happen at some point, it's a question of when not if.
I could go into why cable and broadcast TV as we know it will be dead in 25 years but that's another topic all together

a nitch group how many people want to upgrade their pc themselves every so often? Not many as soon as a game system comes out with the ability to play pc games, pc gaming companies will cease to push for the constant improvements when they have a base system to worry about programming for its just going to happen, don't shoot the messenger.
I really doubt it will ever happen because PC's have always, and will always have the ability to upgrade hardware as an x-factor.....
Studied market forecasts for a while, and broadcast media and entertainment progress

Not to mention the hundreds of sweet Indy titles that are released on PC and easily obtainable on Steam. There is a ton of people still playing PC games around the world. Not to mention PC still owns consoles in the graphic department. I'd argue that PC gaming is in a great place right now.
