I don't think consoles are dead, but I also notice the same problems with them as you pointed out in the OP. The truth is that consoles are inferior
to PCs in almost every aspect one can think of.
Although, game consoles have become much more innovative over the last 10 years (online play, downloadable content, motion detection) and this has
revolutionised the industry from being a simple box that can play video games. Also worthy of noting is that consoles are becoming more like computers
in terms of functionality.
One advantage consoles still have over computers is in terms of portability and accessibility; consoles are generally flatter and smaller than PCs and
can be accessed from any TV anywhere. Another advantage is that consoles are generally easier and safer to use for the young, which is better for
parents that want to keep their kids entertained but not have to monitor them 24/7.
