    Wont ever happen IMO. Especially with TVs only going up to 800X600resolution. Pc's just have so much more functionality, and are easier to tinker with

    the only way for consoles to replace PCs as the 'ultimate' way to game is for consoles to become PCs themselves...the X-box has already started heading that way...it has a harddrive and usb ports (in fact many ppl have successfully loaded linux and win2k onto them)

    even if they do, it is still hard to beat the upgrade-ablity of a real PC (just for the record, i don't consider Compaq, HP, Gateway, or even Dell to be real PCs)
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Never happen. Concider this, Nintendo came out in around 88 right? PCs have been used for gaming since DOS. How many of you would rather play Commander Keen instead of Super Mario Bros?

    Computers have thier ups and downs when used for gaming, but so do consoles. I for one would hate to see it go. Most households have PCs now, so why go out and buy a separet gaming console worth $300?

    Because of the amount of games that are available for games consoles. And there a lot of benifits, like simple pop in the disk and play ( no installin ) better control over the game and playing with a projector. Thats jus a few examples my friends

    Consoles and PCs live side by side. When the latest generation of consoles (XBox, PS2 etc.) came out a year or so ago everyone predicted that PCs would die off. Didn't happen and it won't happen.

    Consoles suit some people, but hardcore gamers need the ability to upgrade components to play the latest games. PC gamers can also play multiplayer games easily, and with the use of a keyboard you can play a wider variety of games.

    Consoles will not replace PCs or vice versa.

    consoles will never take over pc's imho, with the main reason being that consoles will never have the sheer flexibility offered by their pc counterparts

    you can't get demo's for consoles so you have to buy a game for a lot of money and then find out you don't like it. And a pc looks much better than a console ( unless you have a Compaq, HP, Gateway, Dell etc)

    The way graphics are going. I think consoles are going to have trouble keeping up. Especially for on line play. Just my :2cents:
    [size=1.5]AMD 2100+ | Epox 8RDA+
    2x256KHX3000 | AreoFlow TMD
    Antec SmartBlue 350watt | 2 TT80mm case fans | WD 120gig
    Maxtor 60gig | FIC 9800pro | Apex Thermally enhanced case [/size]
