The Pros of Console Gaming
Recently Destructoid's Jim Sterling wrote this piece on Rage for Xbox 360 and PS3. At the end of the piece he states "I'm starting to really struggle to find the pros of console gaming anymore." I thoroughly enjoy Jim's writing and admire him for being one of the few in the industry that isn't afraid to speak his mind. So I thought I'd help him out and list the pros of console gaming as they apply to me.


The Display
Console Gaming: 42" Samsung HDTV


PC Gaming: 19" Dell Monitor



The Seating
Console Gaming: Sofa King Cool; note the surround sound too!


PC Gaming: An old and warped wooden chair.



The Controller
Console Gaming: A device that fits comfortably in the hands; created specifically for gaming


PC Gaming: Two devices that don't fit comfortably in the hands; not designed specifically for gaming



Updates
Console Gaming: Sit back and relax; upating will be complete in just a few minutes


PC Gaming: FFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUU................



The Games

Miss out on all these? No way.


I'm a software engineer. I spend all day sitting at a desk in front of a computer. When I come home at the end of the day, I don't want to sit in that wooden chair at my small, cluttered desk. And I certainly don't want to spend the evening browsing through message boards trying to figure out why the Catalyst driver update just crashed...again. I want to kick back on the big, comfy couch, put my feet up on the coffee table and play games with a small, comfortable controller.

Understand that I'm simply stating my opinion on the matter. You are, of course, free to disagree. :o)
