Being tied down isn't bad for console gamers. When we get the next gen it is always exciting. When you upgrade our own machine its different feeling. It's all about power for PC according to comments on every website from PC players.

How does a PC with different specs designed to fit under a tv, influence consoles that are all designed to have the same hardware. They are totally different products.

Its not the specs that he is talking about. Its the red tape that console developers go through to put out updates, patches, DLC, and so on out to consumers. They believe with SteamOS its more direct with noone telling them when to expect their update to be done with certification. Everything submitted to XBL and PSN under goes alot of scanning and checking before it actually gets a greenlight to be put out in an update.

So, basically an upgradable console? What's the point? I'll stick to upgrading my PC, that's what's it there for.. the console is supposed to be closed, true plug and play IMO - I don't want to have go out and buy more memory cause a new console game calls for it.
