Re: Not Surprised - The console is dead.
Mini yawn because it's not one of the PS4 vs XBone diatribes that some forums are riddled with.
Convenience is also part of a console's appeal, not just specification.
PS4/XBone, put the power in, connect it to TV, power up, play game. Done. Additional services, such as Netflix en all also provide other options quickly available.
Naturally, the PC environment as a continually evolving hardware platform and software platform will outpace consoles, and games will mostly outshine their console counterparts especially further down the line. But some folks just can't be bothered with having to install monthly windows updates, a new version of DirectX, or whatever. They just want to power up and play.
You know that a PS/XBox console is unlikely to have their successor for 7 years or so after release? Add another year or so after release before game releases are flowing maybe. Games bought during the lifecycle of the console will be written with that in mind.
I'm not certain (so please correct me if i'm wrong here) that developers of the latest and greatest PC games ensure their specification will run optimally on a seven or eight year old spec system. Or if they do run, then it will be at a level that the current console will be able to easily do anyway......
More than room for both IMO.
