I am not 100% sure if this fits better here or under off topic, but I had to choose one. I am a active gamer since early 80s, playing and owning a variety of computers, but not any dedicated console of the time (nintendo etc). I am into games a lot, but at the same time I am getting tired of having to fiddle with my PC all the time, keep it up to date, software and hardware wise. Getting tired of having from BSOD to driver incompatibilities, to copy protection schemes that want to know how much you weigh. I am into writing and video editing (both to increase over the next couple of years by a factor of gazillion) and the usual web browsing. The idea of selling my current PC (specs below) is there, but, not a strong one since not only I bought it last December for a lot of money, but I have like a billion games or so and I guess I will want to play some of them in the future. So, I am thinking of keeping it, stop buying new PC games and move to....Apple. Using a mac for work and getting a console, most likely candidate is the 360. The problem with the 360 is not so much the price for the machine (389 euros not too bad if I am going to keep it for another 5 years or so), but the price of the games. 64 euros for games are ouch. A further problem is that I do like my strategy games and the occassional sim, and as far as I know, none exist for consoles. I would appreciate, comments, suggestions etc.
