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.....

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.

Studied market forecasts for a while, and broadcast media and entertainment progress

That message has been spread for the last decade and it still hasn't happened. Before the PS3 came out everyone thought it was going to be the system that played PC games. It wasn't and neither will this generation....

PC games will ALWAYS be around. MMO's can't be played on console. WoW still has 10 mill subs, and they are still putting out MMOs yearly. Elder Scrolls MMO for instance.

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.

Alright, I've got a related question. I'm set on getting a console bundle, and I've found two different ones with 250GB hard drives. Both come with Forza, but the second game it comes with differs. Best Buy has it with Skyrim. Microsoft has it with an anniversary edition of the original Halo. I plan to get Halo 4 regardless. Is Skyrim good?

get the skyrim and forza 4 bundle its well worth it. Skyrim is amazing even on 360 along with forza 4 which is actually a pretty good game.

I was thinking that. I've been watching some trailers, reviews and game-play vids on youtube.

Skyrim is a huge game and that's even selling it short.

Whatever reviewer's video I watched gave it 9.8/10.
