I guess it seems like my post is aimed at you. It was more of a general comment about the
new consoles and how my perception of them changed after having a gaming-worthy PC
for the first time. Only you know how tech-savvy you are, but I would add that I have no
prior tech experience and was actually pretty scared when I first considered the idea of
building my own PC (which was borne out of the need to maximize my meager budget than
anything else). Honest to God, it's not a heck of a lot harder than building a Lego set or a
TV stand (everything has a slot that it goes to and each part only fits in one direction), and there's
SO MUCH information on the Internet about how to do it. I can't answer to your other
opinions or concerns (I keep most of my games so that I can lend them out to friends,
for instance), but I would add that console games have gotten buggier over time, too.
Sorry, but I just don't really see the appeal of building my own PC when I already have a perfectly functional one. My current PC actually was custom-built by a friend of my parents, he's a really great guy and has helped me out with computer problems several times, so should I ever feel the need to upgrade my system, i'll just pay him to do it rather then wasting time and getting frustrated trying to do it myself.
