PC gaming is nowhere near dead... your stupid for saying that, Take 5 minutes to google around. If I had to pull a statistic out of my ass like you did below, I'd probably say that you share the same opinion with 1/100 people about PC vs Console. xbox is for casual gaming mainly except for fighting games, It's barely used for FPS. (biggest competitive play) xbox is Fighting Racing Call of duty Lol. Competitive play on a console is where it's at, sorry to tell you. MLG's Pro Circuit and their National Championships are dominated by console game tournaments. The only PC game they have is like WoW and they just added Starcraft 2. Not to mention the fact that Halo 3 is one of the most competitive games on the planet and it's only the Xbox 360. PC gaming World of Warcraft Counter-Strike 1.6 Counter-Strike Source (horrible game but stupid people still play it) Call of duty (and a couple other FPS games) Starcraft Yeah.. sounds like fun PC gaming is nowhere near dead. If anything xbox + ps3 + wii is dead compared to the amount of gameplay on a PC. starcraft alone brings over 500,000,000 gamers onto the PC. Way to pull a statistic out of your ass. Starcraft maybe has 20,000 players online spread throughout a day. And that's probably a peak number. If anything that number you just stated is overall through it's lifespan. If any game lasted over 9 years it would easily have that number. I believe you think you believe the PC pulls in more gamers, but honestly even if it did, that number wouldn't mean anything. PC gaming is easy to pirate and modify. all u need is a 1g video card high numbered nvidia and ur good for the next 5 years, tech gets better but you can still play fine with minimal even if you wanna play professional. Don't worry. If you're still stuck playing Crysis on the worst settings with no AA, Crysis 2 is coming to the 360 and PS3. 4-6g off ddr3 ram Just checked the prices on google and that alone would cost you half of new 250GB Xbox 360 Elite. 250g hard drive (dont even really need that) Good idea.
