CNet has published an interesting article about the impact of the upcoming Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on PC gaming. Here's an excerpt: graphics card.

Aesliip: a few things for you to consider.
a: how many people are likely to fork out for two 6800u's and a motherboard with support for SLI... compare that figure with the number of people that will fork out for a $300 console that can outperform it (what you've state MIGHT match the GPU, havent even started on the cpu side)
b: how many pc games do you think are going to be written that make use of such a hardware config that is rare except among the rich and stupid? how many console games do you think will be written that take advantage of the standard hardware that every console of that type will have?

pc gaming is gonna need to pretty fucking awesome titles to survive this round

The BIG difference this time around is the XBox2 will plug into your PC and also you will be able to swap out the HDD. The cost of PC gaming is cheap for the software but rediculously expensive for the Hardware. Also the demise of AGP to PCI-E and the fact that you need new board,RAM,PSU and case *if* you build (like i do) is off-putting to say the least. Graphics cards last for a couple of months -novelty wise- and then you play a game that strangles it! 6 months later that card is half price.

That's the sickening part of owning a PC. A console will always produce games that run on it for however long it lasts -not what you can say for the PC...

We have 64bit Longhorn coming out, which means that XP will soon be counting down on it's suport from MS. PC gaming is a rip-off! Some say that about console game prices (which i agree) but i buy pre-owned or second hand, that way i save.
