I've always been a PC gamer, and expect to stay that way. Why would I want a separate gaming system with lame, outdated hardware that I can't upgrade or modify, when I already have a fast, adaptable, transferrable, universally capable gaming rig that offers me superior control over bullshit, imprecise gaming controllers?! You put me up against a console gamer in the same game and I'll kick your ass . Badly. This is a widely known, demonstrated reality.
There hasn't been a logical reason to have a separate gaming system since at least the days of the N64-- At least aside from developers making their titles console, only. So I say screw Sony, and screw Microsoft's hardware division. In fact, screw ALL CONSOLE PLATFORMS. I already have a superior gaming experience without the underhanded policies they're evolving, and their namby pamby hardware.
And some will wish to speak about how you can use consoles to expand media viewing options through your TV. There's no technical reason why a PC couldn't do exactly the same thing, if only development was shifted over to it in the same degree that it is toward consoles. There are PC options you could use now, for that matter.
I venture an (admittedly strong) opinion...
