    One thing I've noticed is the way the PC game sections in stores in my town are shrinking.

    It's almost like they are trying to squeeze the PC games out, while stocking more and more console titles.

    This is supported by their agressive marketing towards console players by urging them to trade in their old games so as to get a discount on their next purchase.

    The problem for PC'ers is that with digital downloads there simply isn't that option, and lately, even purchasing a box over the counter can mean never being able to trade it in or sell it on.

    EG; I bought both Empire: Total War and Dawn of War II. Before I could play though, I had to register them through Steam. There wasn't even an option to play the games without going through Steam first as a part of the install process first.

    I think some PC game publishers are cutting off their nose despit their face somewhat, and it may even push some people towards pirate copies rather than take the risk of paying over a hundred dollars, only to discover that despite researching a title prior to buying it, they didn't like it and are now stuck with it.

    PC for me, but I occasionally game on my friends' XBOXes and PS3s. The choice for me with the current hardware is the PC, just because of the control. There's nothing like a keyboard and mouse.

    I use my PC for everything... *sighs* yes everything.. J/k =)

    The PC is pretty much all I use all the time, I do own a 360 and PS3 but mostly use them for Blue Ray, and Netflix lol, but the PC is the only machine I really game on, my hands are to damn big to use the controllers for any real gaming, although the 360 one isn't to bad the PS3 is just downright redonkulous in size, It's to small for my wife's hands (That's what she Said Hehehehe).... Yes

    then you'd really hate the "retro controller" for the Wii. that thing is slightly larger than a credit card!!!

    i totally dug the controller, but it's just way too small :(. if it were bigger, i'd get me a Wii along with that controller as i don't like the nunchucks.

    Yeah my Ma and Pa own a Wii, last time I was over there we played "Wii Bowling".... With a rectangle shaped controller? I'm not quite sure how that qualifies as bowling but..... Whatever.

    PC. If I want to play a console-exclusive game, chances are my friends have it already so I just go to their house :D
