Ok, lets look at this, It's Christmas, I buy a gift, a game for a XBox PS3 or Wii, stick it in and it works. Cost of the game is the same as one for a computer. Dedicated hardware cost 250 to 500, roughly. I buy a gift, a computer game, will it work? If there is a possibility of upgrading what's the cost? Yes hard core gamer will foot the bill but the game systems now equal to or better than a PC would anyone else? Where's the future. Buy Vista for a game? What is really being said is buy a complete new system for a game. Does this make economic sense? Would you base a business on this? It's over, dedicated gaming systems have won. The Wii with 7 people in front of it ranging from 15 to 47 convinced me this weekend.
