Of course it's dominant; consoles are nothing more than outdated PCs with crappy controllers. PCs appeal to enthusiasts, who by and large have plenty of money to spend on their hobby. Consoles appeal to a demographic which is analogous to the one which purchases base-line automobiles: they just want it to get from point A to point B reliably. Style and performance are irrelevant.

@Apathy Curve
Ditto, except I saw poor gamers, too who stick with the PC just because it's better in every way.

You're a console fanboi, I take it?
Consoles have their benefits, too. Great for kids from a father's perspective: nothing to configure or mess up. Insert disk and dumbify kids.

I have to say I am jealous sometimes at the console camp when they have a new iBox coming while there's nothing new on the PC market - I mean, nothing worth buying. No decent 4k panels, no decent processors, HDDs, or video cards. It's good on the budget for sure, but I'd want a decent 16:10 4k screen.
