Second on that. I no longer have an Xbox, I'm loving my PS3.
You must be older, when I was younger playing consoles my moms 20-30 year old friends were into PC gaming, now that I'm at that age, you notice a lot
of people in your age group doing the same, while an entire batch of young kids adopt console gaming like we once did.
As for the future of gaming going back to PC, it never really was with PC, so that isn't going to happen. It's a cycle. PS4 will come out and for
about 4 years after its release it'll be pretty similar to top PC hardware.
Console games are optimized for specific hardware, with x86 architecture we're actually going to see console hardware being pushed to its limits from
the start, rather than developers having to adjust to proprietary hardware and pushing a console to its max at the end of its 6-7 year life cycle like
we've seen with the PS3. Being that consoles are more developer friendly, and now having been adjusted to have enough power to future proof them,
we're going to see better performance, better graphics, and have a better gaming experience on consoles due to less time and resources being put into
having different development teams for each specific console.
I see this generation of gaming as a fresh start. A lot of change and lessons learned, especially by Sony, it'll be fun to watch. I hope Sony brings
back what they had with the PS2 and make the PS4 the best selling and possibly most successful console to date, things look good so far.
