@bahh, consoles are better.
What are you smoking???
"No messing, stick the disc in and play on a big screen, not a crapp 17in monitor. No messing with DirectX and/or drivers every time you install the latest game, no massive multi-DVD installs."
Ok first things first, only reason you play on the big screen if because GENERALLY you sit further away and it needs to be bigger to see all the detail. I would rather play Assassins Creed on my PC instead of a HDTV because I can see further when it comes to flag hunting. Nice being able to see a flag a half mile away due to the draw distance being maxed. Now onto the other foolish comment you made. How often do you mess with DirectX to get something installed? Most of the time it asks to install an update to DirectX to make sure youhave the lastest version at the time the game was released and if you already have it or newer it doesnt do a damn thing. Now WTF are you talking about MultiDVD installs? Only 2 games I know of lately with 2 DVDs are Age of Conan and Vanguard. So ummm, why not do some damn research before you spout off at the mouth.
"£400 will get you a very smart PS3, and a few games, A PS3 has more grunt than a high-end PC, and devs reckon the Cell/RSX combo is more powerful than a high end GPU."
So for almost $800 US I can get a "very smart" PS3 and a few games? Damn inflation is a bitch isnt it? Could have sworn that it was more then a "few" games for that price seeing as the high-end PS3 is what? Around 400 or less now right? Anyway More grunt? Again do your research before you spout off cause it just makes an ASS out of U and well......U. Granted yes they havent fully utilized the potential of the Cell/RSX system, but by the time they do your argument will still be pointless seeing as at that time PCs will be far more powerful.
Damn I hate know it alls. Flames for obvious reasons
