Sounds like most of you gentlemen feel that it is better to buy a gaming console.  So why are the manufacturers (Nvidia, Dell, Intel, ATI, Alienware, Creative, Logitech, Boxx Technologies, Ageia, etc.) putting so much money and time into PC gaming?

I think these things will run in cycles.  You will find that soon the consoles will evolve into PCs anyway and the line will be blurred.  Nvidia and ATI are making chips for consoles that ultimately will find there way to PC graphics cards.  Creative, Logitiech.. they are not doing anything that can't apply to both consoles and PCs.

Does this mean that the expensive gaming PCs (e.g. Dell XPS, Alienware, etc.) will go out of business because they can't compete with the new lower priced "XBox PC", "PS PC" and "Nintendo PC" or will the new "XBox PC", "PS PC" and "Nintendo PC" become these expensive machines?  I do not think the line will be as blurred.

Also consider this.  Would I be able to play my XBox games on the Nintendo if they both become PCs?

Just talk.  Smiley Hell, I have no more insight than anyone else.

Nintendo have a fundamentally different philosophy to XBox and PS. They make toys. There's a few characteristics of toys which should hopefully prevent them becoming anything like PCs.

That is not exactly what I mean.  The consoles will not become a replacement for a business computer.  But they will get all of the same capabilities that a typical home computer is used for... E.g. they are all now becoming internet enabled and will have browsers and email clients.  Once you get a proper browser you can enable access to services powered by AJAX and it some (pathetic) way get access to "office-like" applications from the console.  You might remember that the most popular home computer of all time was the Commodore 64 - in many homes it was connected to the television.  It had joystick ports and was a very popular video game machine... basically taking over the market of the Atari 2600's and Colecovisions, etc.
There was a period in the early 1980's where the video game system was out and the home computer took its place.  Those computers where C64s, Atari 400's and 800's, Texas Instruments Ti99, Commodore Amiga...  around the time of the MAc and Amiga the IBM PC started gaining ground through IBM's powerful sales force.  At the time the morons that were buying the PCs were constantly putting down the Atari and Amiga computers because they had good graphics and sound and were therefor not useful for serious work...  The PC became the "standard" computer thus handing Microsoft their monopoly and ruining the computer industry for the foreseeable future Smiley

Now with the rise of the consoles (and Apple's stock price) we will hopefully get some real innovation on the home computer front as web-based applications (likely coming from Google) will reduce the strangle-hold that the PC has on progress in the field of home computing.
