"I think the biggest proof point in the death of consoles in my thesis is the Wii. The most successful, most difficult to acquire console in this generation is at least a generation old in hardware."

If I facepalm right now, I'll knock my own head off because this is just retarded. The most successful console being a generation old in hardware would be an even bigger reason why there's "no real need" for PCs either. They're not difficult to acquire but people new to PC games are going to have a difficult learning curve and the hardware costs more than consoles.

"The advances are in software and peripherals. Why do you need a box for that? If the real expansion is occurring because of what Nintendo has done, why do we even need a console?"

He just...has no idea what he's talking about. What is he even defending? I hope not PC gaming because you can throw PC gaming in the console category as well as far as not needing something because of hardware technology. No average joe is gonna go out and get video card that costs as much as a console just to play a game that can only run on minimum requirements. I can rant on forever but I'm even gonna waste my time...
