You are missing the point guys.
RT Strategy game? Yep, PC only.
Seriouis FPS? Yep, PC only.
Arcades? Uhm, I'd say console is more comfortable.
Same goes for number of genres, actually for pretty much anything that doesn't need a mouse.

In relaxed "I sit on my sofa in front my TV" gaming console beats PC. Well, at least for me and I have both PC & PS3.

My guess, as a non gamer, is that either system has it's advantages.
If I had kids I'd rather have them use a closed system then a PC where all sorts of things can go wrong, especially with little sticky fingers around :)

I dont know what advantage console has over pc except price. I wouldnt call it an advantage either since it shows on the gameplay and graphics.

I want a multi-disc DVD changer so I can load the console up with 10 disc or more. No matter how small they make the thing getting my lazy ass off the sofa to play another game is the really issue!
The sensible option would be to copy the DVD to the HDD; but that make too much sense.

720p games don't look great on a large screen (60") but Batman and Burnout are still fun.
Great games are good to go back to after a few years when you are bored, even for only a level or two.

Over £200 for a tired not so special now blu-ray player and pretty tired 6+ year old gaming tech?

I'll pass.

For £130 (£65 for a BD player and £65 for a media/streaming device) I might bite.

Enough with iterations of the same console we're waiting for the
next-gen consoles so better graphic games will be available on PC

Apple iPhone 5 has nothing in common with the iPhone 4S other than the exterior design. All the components are a new generation with vastly improved performance. PS3 Ultra-Slim OTOH is the exact same console with CPU shrunk to 32nm and GPU to 28nm. $269-299 for that is insanely overpriced.

And I'm enjoying PC games on my 30" 2560x1600 Dell at 60+fps. So what's that got to do with a PS3? I enjoy my PS3 in front of a 65" 3D plasma playing online with fellow friends who have PS3s. That's irrespective of the entertainment value of taking it with me when I travel on business, visit relatives, take to tailgate parties, etc. Consoles have their advantages. They were never meant to be as good as PCs, but they are a damn good substitute when we can't drag our PCs around with us and don't want to spend $2,000+ on a dedicated gaming laptop that will run games worth a flip at high settings.
