    As a PC gamer first and foremost (as in I'll buy games for my PC before the PS3 and 360) I dont really have anything against console gamers... not on eurogamer anyway :)

    I guess this sort of attitude dates back years ago, e.g. PC gamers could be arsed configuring extended DOS memory etc (Elite:Frontier I'm looking at you!!!) and people who just wanted to play got a Ps1. Retards. (...sorry only being an arse :-) Really though, I had a 486/DX66 lol ... now who is the arse!

    I tried to get my console gamer friends into the likes of Deus Ex in later years but they said "oh no, I cant, cant control the mouse, too many options.." etc... but TBH things/gamers have changed a lot over the years.

    I guess people with some sort of technical competence will build a rig with cracking specs and amazing visuals for enjoyment of the likes of Crysis (poor example, I know) but the mainstream peeps will buy a 360 with decent gfx and enjoy their game too.

    Me, I like the bleeding egde tech side, but I build and sell and I guess always will, with PC's anyway, and love the "gorgeous" eye candy that bleeding edge (read rip off brand new component ;-) tech brings.

    I love PC gaming, and TBH used to think console gamers where retards who didnt know what to do, but the demographic has changed in such a way over the past years that view is well and truly out of date.
