I have to say to me it made perfect sense to go console just to get away from this aspect of computing.
The same thoughts go through my head whenever I read comments about how expensive the PS3 is.
I mean, yeah, it's the most expensive console. But I used to drop that kind of money (and more) on upgrading my PC for gaming, without even breaking a sweat.
Console gaming also has the advantage that everyone's console has the same capabilities, whereas PCs are all slightly different. PC games have to be much more flexible in terms of performance, and owning a PC doesn't necessarily guarantee that you can play PC games.
