I wish people would get off their high horse when it came to consoles not being as great as home-built rigs. Of course this is the case! I used to build my own gaming pc's, but the last one I built was four years ago and I don't plan on doing it again anytime soon.
I've always owned consoles and I always will. This next-gen will not be any different and I'll probably end up owning both for various reasons, but I'll purchase the Xbox first cause... 'merica.
